15 cl champagne
10 cl sparkling water
3 cl de elderflower liqueur
Pour the elderflower liqueur, the sparkling water and then the champagne directly into a glass of champagne

Notes and suggestions
The particularity of this cocktail lies in the elderberry liqueur of which there are many varieties such as La Maison du Sureau for an organic artisanal production, the Hoeffler distillery for an old-fashioned production or the best known Saint-Germain.
For the children's version, replace the champagne with lemonade and the liqueur with elderberry syrup.
