I didn’t realize I was so predictable. Really? Me? Predictable? I mean I’d blush in concession if you said I was affable or even (ah, shucks) adorable. Go right ahead and call me capable, I don’t mind. I know capable sounds a bit dull, but if you said it in a nice way I’d say thank you. I guess that’s just how amenable I am. But predictable? I always thought that was laughable. Well, I’m here to tell you that the evidence is in, and it’s sizeable. Les Fleurs is a gin cocktail that (on this blog) is as predictable as the season.
When cocktail hour rolls around I like to tinker. Sometimes my tinkering leads to tippling. Enough tippling that it’s easy to convince myself that I’ve developed an original cocktail worth sharing on the pages of this blog. Such is the case of today’s seasonally inspired gin cocktail.
Les Fleurs: A Gin Cocktail
Les Fleurs is a gin cocktail featuring the subtle essence of two springtime flowers: lavender and elderflower. As far as blog fare goes Les Fleurs sounds like a gin cocktail that’s downright copyrightable.
Well, that’s debatable. Because, exactly one year ago today I presented Whiff of Spring, another “original” gin cocktail with an aromatic breath of sweet elderflower. In other words, on the same day last year, I was sitting in the same backyard, listening to the same birds chirping, while enjoying the same flowers blooming – and I came up with the same combination of gin and elderflower.
One year ago today. Now that’s either predictable or inevitable. Either way, I find it irritable. GREG
