The umis­take­able taste and aroma of el­der­flower is the es­sen­tial in­gre­di­ent of this dis­tinctly au­tum­nal cock­tail.

The ice-cold dry taste of the clas­sic mar­tini is fused de­li­ciously with the botan­i­cals of the el­der­flower. The prop­er­ties of the shrub’s flower is the old­est herb cul­ti­vated by man and heal­ers have claimed it can strengthen the im­mune sys­tem with its pow­er­ful an­tiox­i­dants.Whilst we can’t prom­ise this, what we can prom­ise is a drink to be savoured and one which will add warmth to a crisp evening.


Add one-and-a-quar­ter shots vodka, half a shot dry ver­mouth, one-and-a-half shots el­der­flower cor­dial.


Shake all in­gre­di­ents with ice and fine strain into a chilled mar­tini glass.
