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.
