Alcohol-free fizz fun with wild elderflower bubbly
Summer is here it seems so it’s Pimms season as well, but what if you would like a refreshing summery drink that doesn’t have any alcohol in it, but yet still feel that you are having something special? Here is where elderflower comes in. We were asked to try out Luscombe Wild Elderflower Bubbly and give our honest opinion on it.
Luscombe Wild Elderflower Bubbly is available in 27cl and 74cl so the small size is perfect for a picnic basket while the large one is ideal for a BBQ.
Chilled of course, with frozen berries and a twist of lemon for the perfect serve. I added blueberries which brought out the floral notes. Elderflower can be overpowering, however, the aroma is light and not too flowery, just enough to give a sweet smell of walking in the woods but not feeling like you’ve fallen into an elderflower bush!
We both agreed this would go well with both sweet and savoury dishes, such as fish, like a salmon quiche or some lightly fried whitebait. For a sweeter pairing it could be served alongside vanilla ice cream or with a cream tea. Sipping on a glass of this did just make me think of a punnet of strawberries, but remember not to neglect the savoury options too.
Ingredients include: Devon Spring Water, Raw Cane Sugar, Elderflower Infusion, (Elderflowers, Spring Water and Ascorbic Acid [Vitamin C]) (2%), Sicilian Lemon Juice, White Wine Vinegar, Carbon Dioxide.
A light, floral drink which isn’t overpowering in taste or sweetness. Ideal as a mixer (e.g. gin) for those wanting something harder however it stands well on its own or alongside food.
