Drink: Cocktail recipe for June

Every month I share my favourite seasonal food and recipe ideas. In June, Elderflower is one of my favourite flavours. It's delicate but distinctive and it's almost the only floral flavour that I enjoy. And at this time of year there is nothing lovelier than an Elderflower Collins outdoors, in the evening.

Elderflower Collins

Recipe by Sipsmith Gin


  • 40ml Sipsmith London Dry Gin

  • 20ml (or to taste) elderflower cordial

  • Sparkling water

  • a traditional "flag" of an orange wheel and a cherry.


  1. Combine Sipsmith gin and elderflower cordial in an ice-filled Collins glass.

  2. Top with sparkling water.

  3. Stir gently.

  4. Garnish with the orange and cherry.

And it's that easy! Just like making a G&T but so lovely on a warm summers evening. Now, I have to admit that I prefer a wedge of lemon as my garnish and I find the whole cherry/orange flag thing a bit 70s, but each to their own!
