“This bubbly marriage of floral elderberry liqueur, dry champagne, gin and tangy citrus bring a whole new meaning to love at first sight. The slightly rosy hue of the pink lemon makes this cocktail perfect for any blushing bride to sip on her big day.” – Trisha Antonsen, chief cocktail officer at Drizly.com.
