Summer fresh cocktail


I’ve been on a bit of a margarita kick lately, and I was anticipating enjoying one on the deck today with the sun shining.

I started to get the ingredients out only to realize I was totally out of triple sec and cointreau. OK. Plan B.

6 ice cubes

1-2 tbsp elderflower concentrate

2 oz mandarin vodka

1 juicy lime

club soda

Add first 4 ingredients to shaker, shake and pour (including ice cubes) into large glass. Top with 1/2 can club soda and some mint sprigs.

It was clean, juicy and fresh tasting. Quite tart, it could be sweetened by adding some agave nectar to the shaker. I liked it this way though.
