Sparkling Shamrock Recipe
Sparkling Shamrock is a very nice and refreshing alcoholic beverage, especially for the hot summer months. Its citrus and fruity flavors, combined with the complex taste of elderflower liqueur, make for a refreshment unlike any other.
If you love the taste of lemonade and want an adult version of it, which has alcohol, then this drink is perfect for you!
½ oz. Elderflower liqueur
1½ oz. Pear vodka
3 to 5 oz. Lemonade, or club soda, to taste
½ oz. Lemon juice
½ oz. Simple syrup
2 slices Cucumber, divided
Fresh mint sprig for garnish
Lemon twist for garnish
Combine two cucumber slices, simple syrup, and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker. Let it sit for a few seconds to release the cucumber’s flavor.
Add the elderflower liqueur and pear vodka. Fill it with ice and shake vigorously.
Strain the contents twice and put it in a highball glass. Add fresh ice to keep your drink cool.
Add lemonade or club soda, depending on your preference.
You can garnish it with mint, cucumber slices, and a lemon twist.
It is essential to strain your mixture twice to get all the solid pieces out of your drink. It makes for a cleaner and better drinking experience, so this must not be forgotten.
Also, to make your drink taste better, use freshly squeezed lemon juice instead of the powdered lemon juices available in supermarkets.
