Today just happens to be one of those random Instagram Holidays that we love... #NationalFlowerDay! Apparently, it's also now officially spring, which I find hard to believe since we had all that snow last week in NYC...
In true LMP fashion, we knew we had to make a cocktail to celebrate this floral Holiday, so our lovely intern, Natalie, helped me brainstorm dome ideas, and we settled on this delicious Elderflower Smash.
Here's what you need:
-gin -St. Germaine elderflower liqueur -bitters -fresh lemons -fresh mint -ice -cocktail shaker
Here's what to do:
1) Fill your cocktail shaker halfway with ice, and combine 4 oz. gin, 3 oz. elderflower liqueur, 6 dashes of bitters, juice of 1 lemon and 8-10 fresh mint leaves.
2) Shake up all ingredients until well combined. 3) Fill cocktail glasses with ice, and pour mixture from cocktail shaker over top of ice.
4) Add lemon wedge and sprig of mint to each glass, and serve.
Enjoy, and Happy National Flower Day!
