Elderflower and Lime Champagne Cocktail

This cocktail is a really cool and refreshing drink for a bright summer's evening.  It is perfect either to start off a dinner party or for a celebration.  I made it to celebrate my graduation with some friends and, being a poor student and therefore not able to afford expensive champagne, the elderflower cordial and lime added a touch of class to a fairly cheap sparkling wine.

Ingredients per drink:
Juice of half a lime
a shot of elderflower cordial

Put some ice into the bottom of the glass, squeeze over it the lime juice and add the elderflower cordial.  Top the glass up with champagne or sparkling white wine.  Serve with a slice of lime.  Make sure you stir it well since the elderflower cordial likes to stay at the bottom.
