Drinking this now. While enjoyable, I find that the elderflower is very faint and honestly if I didn't make this drink I would of had not really noticed. I think I would prefer this with 2oz rye, 3/4oz punt e mes, 1/2 oz elderflower instead.... This just in: yes I enjoy it this way more, the punt e mes doesn't overpower the rye and the elderflower now has that "what's that flavor" role.
