Lemon Eldflower Martini inspired by Meghan Markle and Prince Harry

Lemon Elderflower Martini

Lemon Elderflower Martini that is inspired my Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding cake and the version I created too! This Lemon Elderflower Martini has a lemon infused simple syrup and candied lemon peels for garnish. It's sophisticated, elegant, beautiful, and enchanting. Just like Meghan Markle! So, Ritzy Chefs, it's time to get fancy!


Lemon Simple Syrup

Lemon Elderflower Martini

  • 1 cup ice
  • 1.5 ounces lemon simple syrup
  • 1.5 ounces Elderflower Liqueur
  • 1.5 ounces gin
  • 1.5 ounces vodka
  • 1 lemon peel for garnish


  1. In a saucepan, combine water and sugar. Let come to a simmer. Then, add in lemon rinds. Low boil for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool for 20-30 minutes. It will cool faster in fridge. This gives it time to cool down while thickening up slightly. Then, remove lemon peels for garnish. 

In a martini shaker, add all ingredients (except for candied lemon peel). Shake! Then pour into a martini glass. Take a lemon rind and rub along rim then use as garnish. Pour in martini. Sip, savor, and repeat as necessary!
