Warmer days are here and so are the parties that coincide with them and here is a “mocktail” that will quench your thirst.  This drink is refreshing and the flavors of the Elderflower syrup blended with the other ingredients is really reminiscent of a gin & tonic but without all the guilt; It’ tart, tangy, bubbly with floral notes and it will cool you off on a hot day or balmy evening.   So sit back and enjoy this alcohol free libation and quench your thirst this summer.

 

I love the sound of the bubbles fizzing in the glass as you pour, makes me thirsty!
