This Meyer Lemon French 75 with Elderflower Syrup is the perfect cocktail to serve during the busy holiday season.  It’s a little floral, a little sour, a little sweet with lots of bubbles.

Meyer Lemons

A few weeks ago our neighbors knocked on our door and gave us a huge back of meyer lemons from his daughters yard.  It has such a unique flavor.  It’s almost floral and I thought it would be so great to pair with some elderflowers and herbs.

I love how this cocktail is very much inspired by fresh ingredients from our neighbors garden and ours.

Meyer Lemon French 75 Bar

I like to free form this cocktail and just have some individual mini champagne bottles out with St. Germaine liqueur with some homemade elderflower syrup.  It’s a great alternative to champagne bar for New Years Eve parties.  You can have your guests add as little or as much gin and/or champagne as they want.  It also saves you from doing one more thing at a party.

The set up:

Place everything on a bar cart and sit back and relax.

I would love love to see the Champagne bars you designed.  Tag me at @rezelkealoha and share it with me please!
