A Royal Cocktail – ‘The Invitation’

A Royal Cocktail – ‘The Invitation’

I love a good celebration, especially a wedding, and I’m not going to lie I’m pretty excited to see the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. I’ve been fascinated by all the wedding plans, from the dress speculation to what’s on the menu, the flowers the bride has chosen, the wedding cake flavours, as well as who’s attending, I can’t wait to see Priyanka Chopra, so when Cotswolds Gin sent me a care package of goodies to make my very own Royal cocktail – how could I say no – so let me introduce ‘The Invitation’.

This sweet, fruity and refreshing gin cocktail is inspired by the flavours of the Royal couple’s wedding cake – lemon and elderflower and is not only the easiest cocktail to make to toast the happy couple, but I’m telling you this drink will be the star of the summer, you’ll want to make ‘The Invitation’ at all your summer BBQs and parties it is that good.

A Royal Cocktail: The Invitation

  • Shake in a cocktail shaker filled with ice:

    • 45ml Cotswolds Dry Gin

    • 12.5ml Elderflower Liqueur

    • 20ml Lemon Juice

    • 8ml Ginger and Lemongrass Syrup

  • Rim a Champagne saucer or Martini glass with sugar

  • Strain the Royal cocktail into the glass

  • Top up with Champagne and garnish with a lemon twist

It is as simple as that, trust me it will take less than 5 minutes to get the most delicious and refreshing cocktail. My advice is to team with your own lemon and elderflower cupcakes, cute little triangle cut sandwiches and have a right good old fashion British knees-up in the sun.

In case you need a little help, join me on my Instastories on Saturday, where I will be taking you through the simple steps to the most amazing gin cocktail you’ll ever taste – follow me @FashionistaBarbie on Instagram.
