Love-in-Idleness

A glamorous champagne cocktail

Is this not the most beautiful amber shade? Named after the flower that Puck uses as a love potion on the Athenians in William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, this cocktail is sure to make you fall in love with it. I created Love-in-Idleness for my Midsummer Night’s Dream dinner party. I wanted something with elderflower because that’s just so fitting for fairies in a forest, don’t you think?

If you’ve never heard of Chambord, well hello! You must be new to The Rose Table. I’m obsessed with Chambord. The mixed berry French liquor adds a touch of glamour to any drink and is incredible in chocolate baked goods. Here its juiciness balances the sweetness of the elderflower liquor. Paired with champagne and an amarena cherry (my preferred cherry for an old fashioned), this cocktail is one for the ages.
