We recently had the pleasure of working our first wedding bar of the summer! As a welcome drink we made these lovely Meadowsweet French 75s. Meadowsweet is a wild edible flower, also know as Yarrow or Mead Wort. Traditionally it is used as a medicine but it's actually a very tasty floral herb to use for infusions. We infused a honey syrup with the meadowsweet and lavender for a truly flowery drink.
- 30ml gin (we used Botanist)
- 20ml fresh lemon juice
- 15ml wild flower infused honey syrup
- 1 dash orange bitters
- Top with champagne or prosecco
Shake all ingredients except bubbles then fine strain into a chilled coup and top with your fizz of choice. We bought those mini pegs from a craft store, they're perfect for effortlessly beautiful garnishes.
For the wild flower honey steep 1/2 cup picked lavender and meadow sweet in 1 cup hot water for 25 mins then strain and mix with 1 cup runny honey.
