The Sunflower is the perfect drink to usher in the warmer months. Its equal parts recipe is based on the classic but less enticingly named “Corpse Reviver No. 2” cocktail which was named as such due to its supposed knack for bringing its drinker back from the brink of a world-ending hangover.
‘The Sunflower’ cocktail sees the original drink’s Lilet Blanc or Cocchi Americano swapped for elderflower liqueur which lends a bright and floral edge to this already delightful gin cocktail.
