With spring right around the corner, Rooted Pear is looking to welcome in the new season with a fresh new concoction. There’s nothing more satisfying than a libation that conjures up thoughts of warmer weather, budding tulips, and the upswing of social gatherings. We both agreed that gin would take on the leading role in this ‘ode to spring’ drink as its delicate herbal notes lend to the floral onset of the season. With that in mind, the addition of the elderflower liquor seemed more than appropriate to satisfy the sweetness profile. As for zest, it’s a must for this spring cocktail and what better ingredient than lemon? Its aromatic, it’s bright, and it’s just the right kind of tart. Now for the fun part, we wanted a bit of “oomph” in this drink so rather than just squeezing in the lemon juice, we created a delicious curd to shake it all up with. Not only do you get the citrus notes but the concoction is heavenly in body. Need I say more? Hello, Spring. Cheers!
