Traditional Elderfashion

October 1, 2011 (Day 186) — Traditional Elderfashion

St. Germain is probably one of the best liqueurs currently available. Truthfully, it’s one of the few expensive liqueurs on the market that I don’t even hestitate to recommend purchasing. It truly is worth the $40+ price tag. It will feature prominently in tonight’s drink. So, while this is dedicated to Best Buy Boozes, we truly think this is something you’ll want to drop the ducats for.

This is a take off on the traditional Old Fashioned, which is one of my all-time favorite cocktails. (Also one of the most difficult to make well).

Traditional Elderfashion

  • 2 oz Old Whiskey River Bourbon
  • 1 oz St Germain Elderflower Liqueur
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 1 tsp club soda

Combine the ingredients in a rocks glass filled with ice. Stir well and serve, garnished with an orange peel.

Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. What exactly does this taste like?

It's kind of like that.
