NYE Elderflower & Currant Gin Cocktail

NYE Elderflower & Currant Gin Cocktail

Who else is ready for 2021 to be over? You better believe I'll be cheers-ing to a new year, fresh start, new goals...all. the. things.

I don't know about you, but I love concocting a fancy and cute drink to ring in the New Year. I'm also a bit of a gin fan, so this cocktail seemed perfect. It has some floral flavors from elderflower liqueur and currant liqueur and some citrus notes from a squeeze of lemon. And of course, you gotta make it fizzy with some soda water. 

If you want to make it even more festive, wet the rim with a lemon wedge, and dip the rim in some sparkly sprinkles - voila! A super cute sugary rim! I even made these stir sticks using skewers and some gold paper. There are so many simple ways to make this drink festive!

Scroll down for the recipe and cheers to a new year, y'all!
