Cocktail Colin says:

4/5

The English Breakfast cocktail cleverly unites the crisp botanicals of dry gin with the soft floral notes of elderflower liqueur, creating a delightful foreground to the robust backbone of black tea. The addition of lemon juice injects a bright acidity that balances the sweetness, making this cocktail a sophisticated choice for those who appreciate nuanced flavor harmonies.
