Recipe: Elderflower G&T

Certainly on a list of best housewarming presents ever is the elderflower liqueur that our friend brought us on Saturday.  I normally don't really care for liqueurs because they are way too sweet for me but elderflower liqueur is different.  It is on the more savory, floral side with a hint of sweetness.  Our friend uses it in epic Manhattans.  We didn't have the ingredients for those but we did have the ingredients for these...

Elderflower Gin & Tonic

You will need these ingredients + limes.


  • Gin
  • Elderflower liqueur
  • Tonic water
  • Limes


  1. Fill a cocktail glass with ice. 
  2. Pour in 1.5 ounces gin, 1 ounce elderflower liqueur and 3 ounces tonic water. 
  3. Squeeze in a quarter of a lime.  
  4. Stir and serve.  
  5. Cheers!

If you agree with one of the readers of my Outblush guest post and think the sugar content of this cocktail is cra cra crazy, consider using diet tonic or omit the tonic water and use soda water instead.  Easy peasy.
