If the drink title has you humming a tune from the 1990s we apologize. Actually, we don’t, that was a good decade for music. If you’re too young to remember the ’90s, please don’t tell us.

The Gin Blossom

  • 1 ounce freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 ounce gin
  • 1 ounce elderflower liqueur
  • 1/2 tsp orange flower water

Combine all ingredients in a tumbler with ice. Strain into a martini glass or drink in the tumbler.


About Rufus' Food and Spirits Guide

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.

    I adore gin. A bit too much, actually. The botanicals in this drink make me think that nothing but Hendricks will do! Do you use St Germaine for the elderflower? I’ve fallen in love with it recently. Awesome cocktail Greg-star!
