Drinks named in a funny way we’re always particularly drawn to. Mother’s Little Helper is definitely such a name. But also when looking through the list of ingredients we immediately knew we would like it. Sherry has become one of our favourite ingredients lately, being relatively neutral it pairs well with most other ingredients, at the same time keeping the drink’s ABV on a moderate level. The small amount of elderflower liqueur in this recipe sweetens the drink in a subtle but sufficient way. A delicious drink!
