Cherry Blossom Martini

The sun is shining and we are making cocktails.  Cherry Blossom Martinis.  The trees are heavy with blossom boasting their colours and promise of bountiful fruit to come.  I couldn’t help think that if the fruit from the cherry tree in my garden tastes so good then surely the blossom must equally taste good.  So I came up with the idea to make a syrup and of course a cocktail.

First, we need to make a Cherry Blossom syrup to give our cocktail a delicate almond flavour. Syrups are easy to make and once made can flavour not only this cocktail but can be added to whipped cream for a delicious sponge filling or drizzled over ice cream and seasonal fruits.

Here’s my latest video of how to make that cocktail plus those all-important sea views. 

Cocktails at the beach hut watching the sailing boats gentle sail by is a joy and am looking forward to sharing more with you here and on my YouTube channel but also mini movies on Instagram and Twitter over the coming weeks.  These mini movies will be shorter, simpler recipes that are almost just putting together of ingredients rather than a recipe.  Anyway, let me show you soon.

      Thank you. It’s good to get to use the blossoms because the birds snaffle all the cherries before we get chance to pick them! Elinor x
