The Chunnel

San Francisco’s Town Hall restaurant is best known for its New Orleans–style food and drink, but it took a detour and went Euro with this elderflower cocktail laced with Meyer lemon juice.

What to buy: St-Germain is an elderflower liqueur that has won over bartenders. It can be found at high-end liquor stores and online.

Hendrick’s is a Scottish gin with lingering cucumber notes. It can be found at most liquor stores and online.

If you can’t find Meyer lemons, substitute regular lemons, though your cocktail will be a bit more acidic and less sweet.

Instructions

Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice and add the elderflower liqueur, gin, and lemon juice. Shake vigorously until the sides of the shaker are frosty, about 20 to 30 seconds. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass, garnish with the lemon twist, and serve.
