Elderberry and Absinthe

Elderberry and Absinthe

I know Absinthe is not everyone's tipple of choice, I love it though and it adds a very decent punch this cocktail to prevent it becoming too cloying.

If you happen to have fresh elderflowers and elderberries, do add them too!


1 part Absinthe

1 part St Germain Elderflower Liqueur

2 parts Vanilla Vodka

1 part Sour Apple liqueur

3 parts cloudy apple juice

1 sugar cube

Juice of a lime



Combine all ingredients in a shaker with some ice.

Muddle well and serve in a sugar-rimmed martini glass with the sugar cube in the bottom.
