Ingredients

Lemon Simple Syrup

  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice,, approximately two large lemons
  • 4 to 5 Large Strips of Lemon Peel,, avoiding the white pith

Mimosas

  • ½ Cup Drillaud Elderflower Liqueur
  • ½ Cup Lemon Simple Syrup
  • 1 Bottle Prosecco, (750 ml)

Garnishes

  • Lemon Twists,, Thyme Sprigs, or as desired.

Instructions

Lemon Simple Syrup

  • In a small saucepan combine water, sugar, and lemon peel. Stir well and bring to a boil over medium heat. Simmer 1 minute. Remove from heat and cool. Add lemon juice and stir well. Strain syrup to remove lemon zest and transfer to a glass container. Store covered in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Mimosas

  • In a very small pitcher, mix together the Drillaud Elderflower Liqueur and the Lemon Simple Syrup. Pour 2 tablespoons of the mixed syrup in each glass. Top with Prosecco and garnish as desired.

Recipe Notes

•  Lemon Simple Syrup can be made up to 5 days in advance of using.
•  The number of servings this recipe makes is dependent on the size of glass. For best results, glasses should not exceed 7.5 ounces . Champagne flutes are classically pretty and crystal juice glasses are timeless as well.
•  A non-alcoholic version can be made by substituting Monin Elderflower syrup for the Drillaud Liqueur and lemon sparkling water for the Prosecco.
