How to make a killer elderflower mojito | Randomly Happy

Guys, I am so excited. Not only have I got an easy summer cocktail recipe for you but I’ve gone and made my very first video. With music. And editing. And a lovely leading lady.

I can’t take all the credit. I was lucky enough to squeak onto Postspro‘s video workshop* run by Michelle and Tim – a very talented duo. They managed to take me from clueless to clued up in one day. With only just my ipad for filiming.

And, yes, that is my thumb in quite a few of my photos. I guess it felt it had too much star quality to stay behind the scenes. Can I get away with it by saying it gives the whole video a homemade quality?

*Full disclosure: I paid full price and it was worth every penny.

    Ooh, this looks delicious. I'm making an elderflower based cocktail for my wedding reception drinks instead of champagne. I do love the taste of elderflower!
