Recipe Corner: Filomena

One of the original drinks on the opening list is still there and still going strong. The Filomena is perfect for the warmer weather. Even for you non-gin drinkers (please try gin ... you’ll be glad you did), this is a great way to get on board. Hendricks gin isn't your traditional London Dry style gin. While there is still juniper in there, you’ll also get cucumber and roses. When you combine that with the elderflower liqueur, St Germain, the roses become even more prevalent. Throw some lime juice in there to take away some of the sweetness, and you have a beautiful warm weather cocktail!

The Filomena
1.5 oz Hendricks Gin
1 oz St Germain
1 oz Fresh Lime juice

Combine all 3 ingredients in mixing glass. Add Ice. Cover with mixing tin. Shake. Strain into your favorite martini glass. Sip. Smile. Repeat as necessary.
