Crafted by award-winning bartender and spirits professional Peter Vestinos, this refreshing summer sipper—a gin and tonic at its heart—has been artfully infused by the spirits and flavors of Greece and the country’s cuisine. “The Chareau liqueur provides Mediterranean flavors of cucumber, mint, and lemon and the Verino Mastiha integrates a signature herbal resin flavor, while the cardamom adds a unique earthy and exotic note,” says Vestinos.

 

The large clusters of the white, creamy flower of the elderberry is a frequent sight in the wilds of Texas May through July, so what better way to kick off the spring season than with a glass of The Butler House’s Elderflower Lemon Drop? Mix one up yourself and enjoy!

—1 oz. 1876 Vodka
— 1 oz. St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur
—1 oz. lemon juice
—1/2 oz. Turbo simple syrup

Add all ingredients to a shaker with ice. Shake then strain into a sugar-rimmed martini glass and garnish with lemon zest. Cheers!

 

Lots of meetings, fresh ideas, flexibility and a dedicated team are all required to pull off the best.
