One of the things we love about having a food blog is that it encourages us to think outside the box and try new things. So, recently we decided to try out a few new liqueurs to test out some new cocktail recipes. We typically don't buy specific liqueurs for different drinks, but this was a fun opportunity to try something new and mix up something we haven't made before. We decided to purchase Chambord and Elderflower liqueur and of course, we had to try mixing up something that used both. As both of these are considered French liqueurs, we decided to name it The French Tonic. A modified classic Gin and Tonic with a fun floral twist!
In a Tom Collins glass, over ice, pour in your Gin, Elderflower liqueur and Chambord.
Using a bar spoon stir your ingredients together. Top with tonic.
Peel a garnish from your orange, twist and rub the oils onto the rim of your glass. Twist and place in your drink.
