  • Lots of ice cubes
  • 1 oz Gin
  • 1/2-1 oz Elderflower liqueur (St. Germaine)
  • 3-4 oz Prosecco or other dry sparkling white
  • 1 oz Seltzer or sparkling water
  • Sprig of fresh mint, with a leaf or 2 crushed to release flavor
  • 1 slice Fresh lime


  1. Put a number of ice cubes into a medium-large glass. I like to fill the glass about halfway with ice.

  2. Add the gin (if using) and elderflower liqueur (or syrup). Twist a bit of fresh lime in, then pour in the Prosecco and finish it off with a dash of seltzer or sparkling water. Garnish with sprigs of mint and a slice of lime.

Recipe Notes

I've provided a recipe for one serving. Of course, you can make a number of servings at once. 

If you use a shot glass, keep in mind that they vary in size. There is no standard size and they vary from just under 1 ounce to 2 ounces.
