ELDERFLOWER GIMLET

Elderflower liqueur is an immensely popular ingredient among professional bartenders and home bartenders alike. It adds a rich, beautifully floral and somewhat fruity flavor to cocktails. It complements many spirits but pairs especially well with the botanicals in gin. The gimlet is a classic gin cocktail made with lime juice and simple syrup. For this recipe, I’ve replaced the simple syrup with elderflower liqueur for a simple, yet flavorful upgrade.

INGREDIENTS

1½ ounces gin
¾ ounce elderflower liqueur
¾ ounce lime juice
Lime wheel, for garnish

METHOD

Combine the gin, elderflower liqueur, and lime juice in a cocktail shaker. Fill ¾ of the shaker with ice. Shake until chilled, about 12 seconds. Strain the drink into a coupe glass and garnish with a lime wheel.
