Strawberry, Prosecco, Campari, elderflower & mint cocktail

Strawberry, Prosecco, Campari, elderflower & mint cocktail

This cocktail is a delicious and beautiful drink to get the party started. The flavours of summer - strawberry, elderflower and mint - add sweetness and colour to fizzy, dry Prosecco and the slight bitterness of Campari. Serve this cocktail in chilled champagne flutes, with fresh strawberries to decorate, and a bowl of fresh olives and oven warm bread: it's the perfect way to greet guests

  • Preparation: 10 mins
  • Serves: 6

What you need:

  • 300g Sweet Eve strawberries
  • 6 sugar cubes (optional)
  • 3 shots of elderflower cordial
  • 3 shots of Campari
  • 1 bottle of Prosecco

What you do:

  1. Take 6 large champagne flutes and chill in the refrigerator. Hull all the strawberries and chop and blend half of them. Strain the strawberry puree into a jug through a sieve, to eliminate the seeds.
  2. When you are ready to serve the cocktail place a cube of sugar at the bottom of each glass, (if you prefer your cocktails less sweet then you can leave the sugar out). Pour half a shot of elderflower into each glass, followed by half a shot of Campari and half a shot of strained strawberry puree.
  3. Open the Prosecco bottle and top each flute with fizzy wine. Mix with a cocktail stirrer and serve with the remaining Sweet Eve strawberries.
