Elderflower and Lemon Sparkling Sipper

• 1/2 cup elderflower syrup
• 2 lemons, juiced (about 1/4 cup)
• 1 bottle cava, well-chilled
• Raspberries, to garnish

Whisk together the elderflower syrup and the lemon juice. Pour approximately 2 tablespoons of this mixture into a champagne saucer or flute. Add enough cava to fill the glass 3/4 full, or to your taste. Swirl gently. Drop in a few raspberries, say cheers, and sip!  This is one recipe I will be making soon.

Wishing my American friends a beautiful and safe 4th of July weekend and beautiful early July weekend to all of my other friends!  xoxo, B
