Elderflower syrup was one of those ingredients which I often saw used in cocktails popular in the U.K., but for some reason nobody has ever been producing/distributing it here in the US. Recently St-Germain Elderflower liqueur came out and it was so amazing I just had to start using it in some cocktails. This was one of my first creations with it. The name comes from Elderflower of course, as well as the thorny side of Cynar, since it is made with artichokes.
