If you're looking for a low-cost cocktail that features gin and floral notes, one great option to consider is the Primrose cocktail. This cocktail offers a harmonious blend of botanicals and bright flavors at an affordable price point. With ingredients like dry gin, Aperol, elderflower liqueur, and a dash of peach bitters, the Primrose cocktail provides a delightful floral experience that won't break the bank. The floral essence of the elderflower liqueur beautifully complements the citrusy zing of lemon juice and the dryness of the gin, creating a refreshing and sophisticated drink perfect for those who enjoy floral-forward cocktails.

While there are other options available like the Lavender French 75 or the Elderflower Gin & Tonic that feature gin and florals, the Primrose cocktail stands out for its cost-effectiveness without compromising on taste and quality. So, if you're looking to enjoy a floral gin cocktail on a budget, the Primrose cocktail is an excellent choice that promises a delightful drinking experience. Cheers!
