Kumquat Elderflower Fix

1 oz Genever
1 oz Gin
34 oz Elderflower liqueur, St. Germain
1 oz Champagne (optional)
2 ds Orange bitters
2   Kumquat
1 spg Mint (as garnish)
Muddle kumquats in liqueur. Stir to combine and fine strain over packed ice in a julep cup, topping with Champagne, more ice, and a slapped mint sprig. Serve with straw.
A recent episode of Inside Amy Schumer mentioned an elderflower and kumquat julep, and I thought that sounded tasty.
