Living up to our name, we will soon go on a rather big detour to find some great cocktails - we are off to Australia!
What’s so exotic about Australia to us Swedes, is that it is located half way around the world, and that they have summer when we have winter. So by making this drink we wanted to take a break from mulled wines, glögg and egg nogs, to rather shake up a summer berries cocktail reminding us of things to come.
We like that this cocktail uses blackberry purée. We bought frozen berries and then just used a handheld mixer to turn them into purée. The recipe says to use simple syrup according to taste. We only used a tiny amount as the elderflower liqueur is quite sweet on its own.
Happy summer . . . sorry Christmas . . . =)
