Ginger - Elderflower cocktail
1 12 oz Rye, Bulleit
13 oz Elderflower liqueur, St. Germain
2 ds Orange bitters, Regans' orange bitters
3 oz Ginger beer, Fever Tree
Add alcohol to old fashioned glass. Stir. Add ice and ginger beer. Stir again.
St. Germain to your taste - I put somewhere between 1/3 and 1/2 an ounce in it these days. Bourbon works just as well, if you prefer. Inspired by the Pseudonym cocktail at the Quill in DC, which is no longer listed on their menu.

  • The ginger and peppery rye add some weight to this, but very accessible. Has a sweet iced tea feel to it too. 2nd go 'round, tea is gone and friend felt it's a bit medicinal. — ☆☆☆☆

Good, but as with so many

Good, but as with so many drinks using St. Germain, it was too sweet. Cutting it down to only half an ounce gave a much nicer result.
