I am continuing my theme of sunshine summer drinking in London with this beatuifully refreshing drink with a punch. I am going to focus on using The Bitter Truth Liqueur - recently these guys have been busy, seeking out the best ingredients they can find; tasting, mixing and tasting some more. The result is their brand new Elderflower Liqueur, so put a spring in your step this summer and follow my simple steps to shake up a delicious Elderflower Martini.

Elderflower Martini

30 ml Gin or Vodka
30 ml The Bitter Truth - Elderflower Liqueur
Lemon Zest

Stir ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Squeeze lemon zest on top.

The Bitter Truth Elderflower Liqueur is infused with fruits, flowers and spices in either water or alcohol and finally a drop of sugar is added. The lovely luminous golden colour reflects the variety of flavours inside the bottle, an explosion of fresh elderflowers, grapefruit zing and very slight spice on the nose and mouth-watering lemon/elderflower sweetness moving to a drier finish on the palate. Perfect. It tastes great on its own, chilled over ice, with champagne as an aperitif or in the deliciously tasty Elderflower Martini.
