Citrusy Elderflower Gin Cocktail

To transform a classic Gin and Tonic we add a hint of citrus and our favorite flavoring, elderflower liqueur. While sipping the revamped libation, we nibble on a batch of our highly addictive Fried Green Olives dipped in Tangy Aioli. Both delicacies will tantalize your taste buds, and disappear quickly, so make sure to plan ahead if serving for a crowd.

    Re Citrusy Elderflower Gin Cocktail.

    Could I suggest, the cocktail would taste even more natural if you used as the base spirit, Knockeen Hills ‘London Cut’ five times distilled Elderflower Gin made from Irish Whey Spirit. This spirit compliments botanicals and at the same time provides a uniquely soft delivery of spirit on the palate, which grain based gins do not.
