If you're exploring gin-based cocktails with intriguing twists like elderflower and green tea, there's several delightful options that combine these elements beautifully. Here are a couple suggestions with some details on what makes them special:

Elderflower Collins is a refreshing choice if you love floral and nuanced flavors. This cocktail mixes the tartness of lemon juice, the sweetness of sugar syrup and maraschino cherry, and the herbal complexity of dry gin. The elderflower liqueur adds a delicate, aromatic twist that's both unique and sophisticated. It's topped with soda water, offering a crisp and bubbly finish that's perfect for both casual gatherings and elegant evenings.

Another standout is the East Side Elder. This cocktail balances the sharpness of lime juice with the botanical notes of gin, all complemented by the sweet and floral essence of elderflower liqueur. The result is a harmonious blend of citrus tang and smooth, fragrant elderflower, making it a sophisticated and refreshing choice for those special occasions.

For tea lovers, while we haven't found a cocktail that exclusively combines green tea, gin, and elderflower, you might enjoy trying out a Green Tea Gimlet, which offers a unique flavor profile with green tea and gin, balanced with lime juice and lemon syrup for a satisfying, tangy-sweet finish.

These cocktails are highly rated and each offers a unique twist on classic recipes, promising a delightful drinking experience. Cheers!
