Spring is right around the corner which means it’s time to make the switch from rich, heavy cocktails and wine to light and refreshing drinks. This grapefruit rose elderflower martini recipe is inspired by a cocktail I had while on an anniversary trip in Detroit. It’s so delicious and is surprisingly easy to make!
Elderflower Liquor Cocktail Recipe
The cocktail I had was a delicious vodka and elderflower liquor concoction topped with champagne. Three of my favorite things in one drink I had to try it! It was soo good. I wanted to recreate it when I got home, but the only vodka I had in the house was this Kettle One Botanical vodka.
My mom introduced me to it when we were visiting in Florida. The grapefruit and rose flavor is so refreshing! It makes an awesome Salty Dog, or it’s great with just club soda and a lime.
I thought the flavors might work well with the elderflower and champagne and I was so right! Yum, the Mr. kept stealing this one out of my hand even though he proclaimed it a “girly drink.” It does have a touch of sweetness to it, which makes it perfect for a fun girls night. It would make a great signature drink for a bridal shower too!
