Paloma (South Of The Border)

An upscale version of the classic sour
Shake with ice, and strain into an ice filled rocks glass. Garnish with a lime or grapefruit wedge.
The original recipe called for .25 oz St. Germain and .25 ounce Simple Syrup. After a few tries, I doubled the St Germain and omitted the Simple Syrup entirely, as I felt the floral taste of the elderflower liqueur was too nuanced, and needed to be more forward.
