Review:

An aromatic, dry blend. Modern bartending convention would suggest that this drink should be stirred. However, it's much better shaken. Go easy with the spray of lime zest oils - this delicate drink is easily overpowered with any more than a fine mist.

History:

Created in 2006 by yours truly at the Cabinet Room, London, England. I updated this recipe in 2013. Older? Yes. Wiser? Perhaps. Drier palate? Definitely. Hence, seven years after creating this drink I reduced the elderflower liqueur from 3/4 shot to 1/2 shot and I also reduced the vermouth from 1/2 to a 1 /4.
