Elderflower MartiniEdit Post

Two readers love this post.
Now don’t get freaked out by the fact that this cocktail has vodka and gin in the ingredients. Odd combination, I know, but it totally works. Every time I have one, I am reminded of just how much I love this drink. It’s not too sweet, not too tart, just a perfect balance of flavors.
But the key to this Elderflower Martini is the homemade sweet and sour, and it is totally worth the extra work. Trust me on this one. You may never go back to the bottled mix again. In fact, once you taste it in this drink, you’ll enjoy juicing those lemons and limes.
Another great thing about this martini? It’s easy to make a batch cocktail. So if you are hosting a gathering for any occasion, hanging out with friends, or just because it’s the weekend, it always fits right in.
This Elderflower Martini just might become your new go-to batch cocktail. I’ll drink to that. Cheers!
