In true cruise spirit, every evening this week, we’ll be offering up special happy hour recipes for you to imbibe at your leisure. For our third installment, we’re raising the swank level with Celebrity Cruises‘ Elderflower Blush, which is served up in the Molecular Bar onboard the line’s Solstice-class ships. Molecular Bar is all about using innovative techniques and fresh ingredients to create unique cocktails. Elderflower Blush is no exception: This sophisticated concoction combines elderflower liqueur, gin, lemon juice, basil, strawberries and Sprite and is served in a tall, ice-filled pilsner. (Interesting note: Celebrity has dubbed the mixologists at Molecular Bar “liquid chefs,” and they can be found giving demos at least once per sailing.) Be sure to check back tomorrow for a recipe from Holland America.
