Respect Your Elders Martini

It’s Monday! Day 35 of social distancing?! I’m actually not sure, I’ve lost count. But, when do you really need an excuse for a good cocktail? My husband actually came up with this delicious recipe (he really is a cocktail connoisseur) and I wanted to share the goodness with you! This drink uses elderflower liqueur (get it, respect your elders?!). It has a delicate taste of floral with notes of peach, pear, and grapefruit. It’s delicious! We named this drink “Respect Your Elders” not only because of the Elderflower used but as a reminder (especially right now) to RESPECT YOUR ELDERS! Check in on them, call them, be there for them. Ok, so how to make this yummy drink? Lets get to it!

Respect Your Elders Ingredients:

  • Vodka (Replace with gin if desired!)
  • Elderflower liqueur 
  • One small lime
  • Grapefruit bitters 
  • Simple syrup
  • Ice

Add 3 shots of vodka (or gin) into a martini shaker. Add 1 shot of elderflower liqueur.

Use the juice of 1/2 of a small lime. If you have a big lime, don’t use the whole half or it will be too tart.

Add 2 dashes of grapefruit bitters. Add 2 squirts of simple syrup.

Add ice and shake! Pour in an iced martini glass. Garnish if desired!

We hope you enjoy it! Cheers to a good week friends!

xoxo, Amanda
