How to make:

SHAKE all ingredients with ice and fine strain into chilled glass.


Lime zest twist


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 over powered with any more than a fine mist.


Created in 2006 by yours truly (Simon Difford) 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.
