Waterloo Sunset Cocktail Recipe

An easy and charming cocktail, the Waterloo sunset can be enjoyed by all. With a few layers of Champagne, the Waterloo Sunset cocktail is a sweet and delicious cocktail. With a delightful twist on a couple of popular cocktails, this recipe from Beefeater Gin is perfect for spring and summer entertaining. This gin and elderflower cocktail resembles something like an elderflower cocktail because it begins with gin and elderflower liqueur in sparkling wine. As with a tequila sunrise, this cocktail possesses the “sunrise” component, but the “rise” comes from raspberry liqueur instead of grenadine. These elements combine to create a stunning cocktail that would be excellent for many events.
