#DOTW: Elderflower Lemonade

Yes, it is entirely too early for umbrella cocktails, but I couldn’t help myself, I just tried this one recently, and I couldn’t wait to share it. It’s a just a bit of a twist on the good old gin and tonic, which happens to be one of my favorite drinks. This one is a little lighter in taste, and more fun to look at! It’s simple and delicious, refreshing and perfect for springtime soirees.

What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz Hendrick’s Gin (or quality gin of your choice)
  • 2 oz Tonic Water
  • 2 oz Belvoir Elderflower Lemonade
  • lemon

Fill a highball glass with ice. Add gin, tonic water and Elderflower lemonade. Squeeze some fresh lemon on top. Garnish with a lemon slice and whatever your heart desires.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
