White Nectarine and Elderflower Cocktail



2 portion(s)

  • 1300 grams water
  • 6 white nectarines
  • 50 grams caster sugar
  • 110 grams Elderflower cordial
  • 110 grams gin
  • 400 grams ice
  • fresh mint leaves, to garnish

Recipe's preparation

  1. Boil 1250g water in bowl for 8 minutes / 100C / speed  2.

    While waiting for the water to boil, cut a cross in the base of the nectarines.

    Once water has boiled, remove lid and gently place the nectarines in the boiling water for approximately 30 seconds. 

    Remove the nectarines with tongs and place into an ice bath. This  will cool the nectarines and help loosen the skin for peeling.  When cool enough to handle, remove the nectarine skins and discard.  Slice the flesh off the nectarines and discard the seed/kernel.

  2. Sugar Syrup
  3. Into a clean bowl, add caster sugar and 50g water (as a 1:1 ratio).


    Heat for 3 minutes / 90C / Speed 2.5 until sugar  has dissolved.


    Leave sugar syrup in the bowl and allow to cool.

  4. Putting it all together
  5. Into bowl containing sugar syrup, add nectarine flesh, elderflower cordial and Gin and blend 30 seconds / Speed 7.


    Add ice cubes and blend 30 seconds / Speed 9


    Serve in chilled glasses and garnish with a sprig of mint.


Accessories you need



You can prepare the nectarines and make the sugar syrup prior to your party, so all you need to do on the night is add ice and blend.


Elderflower cordial can be purchased from most major supermarkets, as well as lots of smaller specialty delicatessans.
