Floral Gin Cocktail

Floral liqueur adds a refreshing twist on the classic gin and tonic.

Elderflower Gin and Tonic
Elderflower Gin and Tonic

I love G and Ts. They are a summer go-to  for me both at home and when I visit a restaurant or bar.

In an unspeakably bold move, I chose to try out the additional ingredients path. Life is short, right? I went the sweet route and tried the Elderflower Liqueur. It works very well with the bitter of the tonic and the aromatic flavor of the Gin. I tried it with several Gins and liked the effect with Plymouth Gin and Bombay Sapphire the best.

Of course, a Gin and Tonic is highly customizable. Make it the way you like. Experiment with various Gins and Tonics.

  • Author: Will Herman
  • Yield: 0 ~1 serving 1x


  • 11/2 oz Gin (I preferred Plymouth Gin)
  • 3/4 oz Elderflower Liqueur (I used St. Germain)
  • 4 oz Tonic Water (I like Q Tonic Water best)
  • Lime wedge for garnish


  1. Add Gin and Elderflower Liqueur to the Collins glass.
  2. Add ice to fill about 2/3 of the glass, then top off with the Tonic Water.
  3. It’s a good idea to give a bit of a stir to the ingredients with a bar spoon, but not vigorous enough to flush the bubbles out of the tonic.
  4. Garnish drink with a lime wedge.
