Ingredients
  • 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups gin
  • 3/4 cup elderflower liqueur, such as St. Germain
  • 1 1/2 cups ice
Directions
  • 1. Remove 8 thin strips of zest from the lemon using a vegetable peeler and set aside. Thinly slice the lemon and place in a small pot with the sugar and 1/3 cup water. Bring to a boil and cook until the sugar dissolves. Let cool and strain the syrup.

  • 2. For each of 8 martini glasses, rub a strip of zest around the rim and then drop in the bottom of the glass for garnish. Combine the gin, elderflower liqueur, lemon syrup and ice in a measuring cup or pitcher and stir until very cold. Remove any unmelted ice or strain into the prepared glasses. Serve icy cold.

  • Cook's Note: Use a neutral gin to allow the floral notes of the elderflower liqueur to shine through.
