It seems as if this drink was originally created in 2006 by Simon Difford. However, it’s original name was the Elder Fashioned. Much classier, don’t you think?
It is a tasty drink, and one I was surprised by. The sweetness of the bourbon works well with the fruitiness of the elderflower. I would also recommend an orange twist as a garnish. The original recipe by Mr. Difford called for orange bitters, so you may also try that.
