Refreshing Champagne Cocktails for a Scorching Ascot 2008

With the temperature soaring to 22ºC in Ascot today I am hoping – along with thousands of others – that the weather will be kind. If it's hot then there are two Champagne Cocktails that will cool you down: the Venus Flower and the Raspberry Champagne Cocktail.

Venus Flower

Elderflower Cordial
Apple Schnapps
Lime Juice
topped with ice cold Champagne.

Raspberry Champagne Cocktail

3 fresh raspberries
1 tsp raspberry liqueur
dash of vodka
2 ice cubes
champagne, to fill

Place 2 raspberries in a cocktail shaker. Add in the raspberry liquor, vodka and ice. Cover and shake together until well blended. Carefully strain into a champagne flute, top with champagne, then the remaining raspberry and serve at once.
