FORWARD FLOWERS

While not tropical flowers, elderflowers and grapevine flowers make up the backbone of this drink. I added some more tropical elements with the fresh citrus and rum which complemented to two floral liqueurs well.

For the drink:

-1 1/2 oz white or lightly aged rum (Diplomatico Planas)

-1/2 oz St Germain

-1/2 oz Espirit de June

-3/4 oz fresh ruby grapefruit juice

-1/2 oz fresh sweet lime juice

-1/2 oz fresh lime juice

-1/2 oz pistachio orgeat


Garnish:

Cocktail cherry

Grapefruit peel


Glassware:

Combine all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake for 10 seconds. Pour into your glass through a Hawthorne and fine mesh strainer. Garnish.
