Edible flowers are one of my favorite ways to instantly add a feminine, natural and beautiful touch to food, cocktails and even ice cubes! So for this Berrylicious Floral Cocktail, we created a delicious cocktail that’s not just refreshing, but absolutely stunning too! It’s made with strawberries, muddled edible flowers, lemonade and some elderflower cordial. The floral notes are strong but not overbearing, the lemonade adds a little sweetness and the strawberries make it pink! We made two different types of ice cubes to go in the cocktails. The red ones are strawberry elderflower cubes and for the others we simply added in some edible flowers before freezing. Read below for the recipe!
