Recipe: Springtime Sparkler

Something a little fancy for spring…

2 scoops lemon sorbet, softened

1 to 2 ounces Hendricks gin (while you may use another gin, Hendricks has some rose notes that accent this cocktail nicely)

½ ounce St. Germane Elderflower liqueur (optional) champagne

3 to 4 edible flowers (can sometimes be found in the produce section of grocery stores)

Scoop the lemon sorbet into a tall cocktail glass. Add the gin and elderflower cordial (if desired). Top with champagne and stir. Top with edible flowers, and serve with a spoon and straw.
