The ELDER FASHIONED - A Gin & Elderflower Old Fashioned Cocktail
Here's a riff on an Old Fashioned cocktail that will please gin lovers and elderflower liqueur lovers alike. Using Hendrick's Gin with the elderflower liqueur made this a very floral forward cocktail. A little Lavender honey simple syrup blended nicely and a dash or two of grapefruit bitters added just the right amount of citrus to balance out the drink.
Hendrick's is a true floral gin and loves bring paired with Elderflower which is one of its botanicals. I just kept going merrily on down that flower path with the lavender honey and a garnish of dried butterfly pea flowers.
