Mayfly Cocktail

Old Tom Gin, Calvados, Elderflower liqueur, Herbal liqueur, Lemon juice, Lemon peel
Shake, double strain, chilled coupe. Express lemon peel high above the glass, rub the stem and underside of the bowl of the glass, and garnish
I prefer to use Hayman's to keep the color of the drink on the lighter side
I like the fleeting and ephemeral flavor of this cocktail. Slightly herbal, fruit forward, with an interesting intermix between the sweet gin and calvados
