A Tale Of Cocktails #25

Elderflower Royale


5 oz champagne
1 oz elderflower liqueur

Taste: 6
Look: 4
Cost: 8
Name: 4
Prep: 10
Alcohol: 3
Overall: 5.9

Preparation:  Pour the liqueur into a champagne glass, and top up with champagne.

General Comments:  Eeeeerrrgh, this is boring.  The elderflower goes well with the champagne, but only in the sense that they both have similarly dry tastes that means the eldrglower is almost totally lost.  You can tell you're not drinking champagne, but only just, and without anything interesting going on visually - and an even more boring name than you usually get with this type of cocktail - there just doesn't seem to be any point to the endeavour.
