Borage Floral Fizz Recipe

Did you know you could make your own botanical cocktails, complete with homegrown-edible flowers?

The muddling of the borage foliage lends a cucumber flavor to the drink. Top the glasses with blue blossoms, both sweet & delicious. 

Ingredients:

  • 6 large borage leaves
  • 2 bunches borage flowers, separated
  • 3 oz elderflower rum (or substitute 1 ½ oz white rum and 1 ½ oz St. Germain)
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 1 ½ oz simple syrup (adjust to taste)
  • Soda water
  • Ice cube tray
  • 2 rocks glasses

Instructions:

  1. At least 4 hours ahead, fill an ice cube tray with water and sprinkle in blue borage flowers from one bunch of blossoms. Place in freezer to set.
  2. When ready to prepare drinks, place borage leaves in a tall glass with simple syrup and muddle until lightly frothy. Add elderflower rum (or white rum & St. Germain), and lemon juice.
  3. Pour mixture into two rocks glasses.
  4. Top with floral ice cubes prepared earlier, and fill with soda water to the brim of each glass.
  5. Garnish with additional borage flowers for a picture-perfect finish.
