Weekend Cocktail: Lady Dani

This weekend is Midsommar and I wanted to make a cocktail that was perfect for warm weather and had a little Swedish flavor to it. Aquavit would have been the obvious choice, but I decided to work with elderflower syrup from Ikea instead.
This was one tasty cocktail. A super easy, refreshing drinker that isn’t too strong. Actually, it might be too easy a drinker! I was afraid the lime juice would overpower the elderflower, but the flavor blend was just right, not too sweet and not too tart.

Lady Dani

2 oz vodka
1 oz elderflower syrup
2 T lime juice
splash of Angostura bitters
4 ice cubes
soda water
highball glass

Put the vodka, elderflower syrup, lime juice, bitters and ice in a the shaker. Shake. Pout into highball glass. Fill with soda water.
