Tart, dry and lightly bitter, but with just enough underlying sweetness to stroke the palate and make another sip so very desirable – a complex, bittersweet taste sensation. Brilliant as an aperitif on a hot summer's evening.
Jim's original recipe calls for 7.5ml (¼oz) elderflower liqueur but in October 2020, due to popular request (see comments below), I amended the above recipe to have twice the volume of elderflower liqueur.
