This is a perfect cocktail! Sweet, complex, delicious, and beautiful. The botanicals from the gin meld perfectly with the flowery sweetness of the lilac syrup which itself is tempered with a hint of a bitterness from the aperitif. A bitter bite is needed to rein-in the sweet flowery perfuminess of the lilac syrup. This is a great cocktail to be enjoyed in early summer in the garden under the sun and amongst the birds and the bees. It has a beautiful sea-water blue green color that you’ll enjoy just as much as its incredible flavorful. Truly one of our favorites. Be sure to check out our other lilac-inspired cocktails and enjoy these delights all summer long!
