I would love this drink to be this year's Aperol Spritz, so much so that I will be actively foisting it on my brother as his wedding aperitif later this year. With the elderflower and Campari base perfectly balanced between complex bitterness and sugary earthiness, the delicious assault this one will make on your senses is completed by the bubbly prosecco and fragrant mint garnish.
This one's for you if you're the type of person that delights in your friends being unable to place how you've made 'that amazing cocktail'. Bring on the summer.
