This is a valuable thread I found sometime back and been using with every rom I flash & keep.
Give it a try, confirmed working perfectly with all Xperias with appropriate Android version.

NOTE: Flashing YourZgapps will remove all standard GApps .apk files from /system/app and then install the new ones!

Explained function for most of the APKs:
