Bon Weekend, Plus Couture Cocktails

This has been a crazy, busy week catching up on a few projects, taking the kids places, and getting together with friends. The weather has been lovely, 70’s during the day and 50’s-60’s in the evenings.  I can’t possibly not get out and not do things. Things won’t be slowing down much for the weekend but I hope to get in a little relaxation if only for a little while.

Couture Cocktails
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
Makes 6 cocktails

Whisk together the elderflower syrup and the lemon juice. Pour about 2 tablespoons of this mixture into a modestly-sized cocktail glass like the ones pictured above, or into a Champagne flute. Pour in enough cava to fill the glass 3/4 full, or to your taste. Swirl gently. Drop in a few raspberries.  Cheers!
