Fall is here, y’all! And I’ve got this Elderflower Whisky Cordial on my mind. It may have been nearly 85 degrees in Boston this week, but I. Don’t. Care. It’s fall and I’m sticking to it. Sure, this summer was grand! But, now I’ve turned into my fall self – all slouchy sweaters, black denim every day, scarves on scarves, the list goes on. I mean really, I truly enjoyed summer, but aren’t you excited to also not be sweating anytime you want to do something outside?
I generally think fall feels so new because every one is actually not sweaty for the first time in months. It’s a good look. For everyone. And so is this cocktail! I’ve come to enjoy the ‘harsher’ (if you will) liquors, such as whisky. Take, for instance, this super summery, super tasty Grapefruit Bourbon Cocktail. I never once thought I could love bourbon or whisky (…or whiskey) so much, but that grapefruit cocktail was a doozy! And now I’ve got this – the Elderflower Whisky Cordial.
It was inspired by a birthday gift from two of the coolest friends ever. Not only did they both come to my surprise birthday party, they also came with the most ‘Gabi’ gifts I’ve ever seen! I’m keeping 2 of them a secret for now, but this whisky cocktail right here is all inspired by this tasty Elderflower Tonic they gave me by Jack Rudy Cocktail Co.
The tonic’s got a really interesting flavor, and something that I can’t quite put my finger on. It’s light and floral, with a bit of pizzazz. I realize that doesn’t give you much information, so you’ll simply have to give it a go for yourself!
