I’m back with another fun summer cocktail recipe in partnership with Prairie Organic Spirits! This time I reached for their award-winning farm-crafted Prairie Organic Gin to create a sweet fresh fruit infused summer drink with, yep you guessed it, another edible floral twist. This Strawberry Elderflower Gin Smash brings out the naturally refreshing bursts of herbs, sage, juniper and exotic spices of Prairie Organic Gin with flavors that are the perfect complement to its long, delicate finish.
The height of summer is the perfect time to use the season’s bountiful fresh fruits in your drink recipes. I love a classic gin smash cocktail and since elderflowers are in full bloom all over the island I thought they would make an excellent addition to this refreshing beverage. Elderflowers are the flowers of the elderberry plant and have long been used to make drinks like elderflower cordial and elderflower champagne for example. Infusing the blooms into a simple syrup is an easy way to extract their subtle floral fragrance and delicate taste. They are a natural pairing for sweet summer strawberries and together the flavor combo pops with the addition of Prairie Organic smooth tasting gin.
The distinct taste of Prairie Organic Spirits can be traced back through a detailed process that starts with the very best organic corn grown by Minnesota family farmers. From there, master distillers turn the farmers’ superior corn into truly one-of-a-kind tasting spirits. You can actually taste the passion for craftsmanship at the core of the Prairie Organics brand, including all of the farm-to-bottle ingredients that go into every batch of spirits. It’s so nice to find quality organic offerings in the spirits space and even nicer to know that the brand behind them supports sustainable family farms.
Hop over to Prairie Organic’s site to learn more about their farm-crafted spirits, the family farmers growing exceptional ingredients for each batch, and the entire fascinating process of producing organic spirits from seed to bottle.
