Fleur Collins Recipe

Even though it’s not summer anymore (and it won’t be for nearly another year!), my food and drink brain is all summer, all the time.

This cocktail is a riff on a classic Tom Collins-minus the cherry, plus sweet floral notes from fragrant elderflower and violet liqueurs. I would even call this drink feminine, not because it’s girly and cloying, but because it’s lush, just sweet, and effervescent but still manages to pack a punch. (sorry guys!)
