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!)
