Toast to the start of summer with this deliciously bright and fizzy cocktail. Herbal gin pairs perfectly with floral lemon elderflower soda, balanced by bracing lemon bitters. You’ll want to stock up on this particular flavor of soda– it instantly elevates anything you mix it with, and tastes both light and refreshing. Perfect for the warmer days ahead.
