Elderflower Esprit

We are taken with the entire line of Thomas Henry products, which are packed with flavor and about as fresh and natural as packaged products can get.  One of our favorites is their new elderflower tonic, which was the inspiration for this cocktail.

Elderflower Esprit
2 oz. Bourbon
1 oz. Lemon juice
½ oz. Amaro
Elderflower tonic

Combine first three ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice.  Shake to mix and strain into a lowball glass with ice.  Top with elderflower tonic and garnish with a mint sprig.

imageThis cocktail is light and refreshing.  The amaro (we used a homemade version) adds bitterness and balances the bourbon spice and citrus.  Be sure to slap the mint against your palm to release its aroma before garnishing.

Even though this nightcap was on partly Thomas Henry’s tab, we will always review products honestly.  Contrary to popular belief, free drinks don’t automatically taste better.
