July Cocktail of the Month: The Close Shave

An embodiment of elegance and class with a bit of a kick, The Close Shave is a refreshing, bubbly taste of the Upper East Side.

Combined with New Amsterdam Vodka, the elderflower liqueur and Prosecco provide a delicate flavour to what could be considered a harsh Russian spirit of choice. Ideal for when you need something light, yet impactful to take the week’s grime away.


  • 28ml New Amsterdam vodka
  • 42ml Elderflower liqueur
  • A dash Prosecco


  1. Combine the vodka and elderflower into a cocktail shaker, shake, and then strain into a chilled martini glass. Top it with a splash of Prosecco and garnish with fresh rosemary.
