Elderflower liqueur adds a range of flavors — from tropical fruit to peach, pear and citrus, all topped off with a hint of honeysuckle. It comes from the pretty little white flowers that grow on elderberry bushes and makes a delicious addition to this spritzer.

You can make a zero-proof version of this drink by using elderflower cordial instead of the liqueur. If you have elderberry bushes, you can make your own cordial, or buy it at a specialty store or online. Then skip the Champagne and double the amount of club soda.
- 1 1/2 Ounce (45 mL) elderflower liqueur
- 2 Ounces (60 mL) Champagne, chilled
- 2 Ounces (60 mL) club soda, chilled
- 1 lemon slice
- Ice cubes
Fill a glass halfway with ice cubes and add elderflower liqueur.
Then add Champagne and club soda.
Cut halfway through the lemon slice, from the rind to the center.
Then twist it and place it on top for garnish.
