Elderflower Collins

17 Mar

The second cocktail in this months Shaken Cocktails kit is a Elderflower Collins (I’m not sure why this is in the Negroni box especially as I was hoping for another Negroni variation which is the pattern the boxes usually take but hey ho)

The recipe is:
– 30ml lemon juice
– 45ml gin
– 15ml sugar syrup
– 15ml St Germain elderflower liqueur

The resulting drink was very sharp with a fruity, floral hint but perhaps needed more elderflower to balance it- I Like sharp and bitter drinks but this was a bit much. I’ll experiment when I make the next one.
