We think it would be great to take a cue from the royal baker who was tapped to make the wedding cake. After all, she is from Los Angeles!!!
The cake flavor that Harry and Meghan have chosen is a radical departure from the norm. Royal wedding cakes usually take the form of long-lasting fruitcake.
This modern couple of 2018 chose a “lemon and elder flower” cake!
Grab the St. Germain and make a fun cocktail and toast the happy couple with us!
NOTE: IKEA makes a sweet non-alcoholic drink from Elderflowers and that can be enjoyed by all in your group!
Elderflower Recipe Floral Cocktail from the St. Germain
THE ST‑GERMAIN COCKTAIL
2 parts Brut Champagne
1 1/2 parts St. Germain (Elderflower Liqueur)
2 parts Sparkling Water
Fill a tall Collins glass with ice. Add brut champagne first, then St-Germain, then sparkling water (IN THAT ORDER). Stir completely and garnish with a lemon twist. And, if you have done all of the above perfectly, feel free to put your name on it, as well. Serve during cocktail hour, as an apéritif just before dinner service, and throughout the meal.
Prosecco or dry white wine instead of brut champagne; club soda instead of sparkling water.
For pizzazz and color add a fresh flower! There are many edible flowers that make wonderful garnishes for cocktails. Make sure they are organic and sourced from Whole Foods or an online merchant like Gourmet Sweet Botanicals.
