A fun twist on a classic Old Fashioned cocktail, Elderflower Old Fashioned is enhanced with St. Germain liqueur for a beautiful spring floral flavor that will be easy and delicious to sip on.
We are in the midst of the coldest weather of the season, but I am dreaming of spring, sun and cocktails. I love classic cocktails, but I always enjoy the creativity of cocktails menus that create classics with a twist. I am keeping the Old Fashioned traditional but adding a beautiful and mild floral flavor that will bring spring into every sip with an elderflower liqueur. St. Germain is a perfect addition to blend with bourbon and bitters to make an Elderflower Old Fashioned.
