Apple Blossom

Author Notes: On a recent balmy evening I was digging around in the liquor cupboard looking for something fun. I spotted the apple brandy and decided to try using it in a light, springy cocktail, along with a bit of the leftover (by which I mean flat) elderflower pressé in the refrigerator.

Elderflower pressé is basically elderflower soda. It was available everywhere when I lived in England and it's delicious. Look for Belvoir Fruit Farms Elderflower Pressé - if your local store has a British section it might be there along with the PG Tips tea and Hobnobs. If you can find elderflower cordial (a concentrated, non-fizzy syrup) feel free to use that instead and omit the simple syrup.

Makes: 1 drink

  • 1 shot apple brandy
  • 1/2 shot elderflower pressé (flat is OK)
  • 1 splash lemon or lime juice (scant)
  • 1 splash simple syrup
  • a dash or two of grapefruit bitters
  • ice
  1. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with some ice. Shake thoroughly and strain into a glass.
