Berry Elderflower Fizz

Yield: 1 cocktail

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries, stems removed
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 raspberries, to muddle
  • 1 strawberry, to muddle
  • ½ ounce St. Germain elderflower liqueur
  • ¼ ounce lemon juice
  • Prosecco or Champagne of your choice

Directions:

  • To make the raspberry-strawberry syrup, combine the raspberries, strawberries, water, and sugar in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a simmer, stir, and remove from heat. Let cool before straining the mixture with a fine-mesh strainer, tamping down on the solids to extract all the juice. Store the liquid in a Mason jar or other sealable vessel.
  • To make the cocktail, muddle the berries and syrup in a cocktail shaker. Add the vodka, St. Germain, lemon juice, and ice. Shake vigorously.
  • Strain the mixture into a Champagne flute and top with the sparkling wine of your choice. Serve.
