Cocktail Colin says:

4/5

The Wimbledon cocktail superbly captures the essence of its namesake event with a playful yet sophisticated blend. The sweet freshness of strawberry puree and the subtle floral notes of elderflower cordial dance delightfully with the zesty lime juice, while the vodka provides a smooth undercurrent, culminating in a refreshing hit of ginger ale that perfectly rounds off this summer sipper.

Tasty, you can use simple syrup as a substitute for Elderflower Cordial.

Yeah it needs something for that sweetness to balance it. Simple / sugar syrup would work well!

FAQ's

FAQ

Why is the cocktail named Wimbledon?

The cocktail 'Wimbledon' likely draws inspiration from the Wimbledon Tennis Championships, one of the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments held in Wimbledon, London.

INGREDIENT_SUBSTITUTIONS

Can I substitute ginger beer for ginger ale in the Wimbledon cocktail?

Yes, you can substitute ginger beer for ginger ale in the Wimbledon cocktail to add a stronger, spicier ginger flavor. However, it's worth noting that ginger beer tends to be more robust and less sweet than ginger ale, which could slightly alter the cocktail's taste balance.
