Mayfly Cocktail

1 14 oz Old Tom Gin
12 oz Calvados
12 oz Lemon juice
14 oz Elderflower liqueur, St. Germain
1 bsp Yellow Chartreuse
1 sli Lemon peel
Shake, double strain, chilled coupe. Express lemon peel high above the glass, rub the stem and underside of the bowl of the glass, and garnish
I prefer to use Hayman's to keep the color of the drink on the lighter side
I like the fleeting and ephemeral flavor of this cocktail. Slightly herbal, fruit forward, with an interesting intermix between the sweet gin and calvados
