Three Citrus Elderflower Martini

20140125-164633.jpg

Today I started a batch of homemade tonic syrup, which seems to be all the rage these days. The recipe called for the zest of three lemons, three limes and two oranges. Naturally I had to juice those sad naked fruits and use the juices in a cocktail. I used two English ingredients to round it out since G&Ts were on my mind (alas, the tonic needs to steep for 72 hours before I will know if the experiment is a success!)

1 oz freshly squeezed orange juice
1/2 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 oz freshly squeezed lime juice
2 oz gin
1/2 oz elderflower liqueur

Shake well and fine strain into chilled cocktail glass.
