What can I make with elderflower tonic?

It looks like the cocktails listed focus primarily on elderflower liqueur or cordial, and unfortunately, none specifically mention elderflower tonic. However, there's still a great starting point for creating your own unique variations. You could take inspiration from these elderflower-based drinks and simply substitute the tonic water in place of other mixers like soda water or regular tonic water.

For instance, the **Elderflower Collins** (rated 4.6/5) blends dry gin, elderflower liqueur, lemon juice, sugar syrup, maraschino cherry, and soda water. Replacing the soda water with elderflower tonic could add an extra layer of floral complexity and a unique twist that complements the existing ingredients beautifully. Similarly, the **Elderflower Gin & Tonic** (rated 3.99/5) could be enhanced with elderflower tonic, creating a more pronounced and fragrant elderflower profile.

Other cocktails such as the **Eldercooler**, which consists of white vermouth, elderflower syrup, and soda water, could also be an excellent candidate for your elderflower tonic substitution. This way, you can harness the essence of elderflower tonic while enjoying a refreshing and elegant cocktail experience.

Don't hesitate to experiment and play with flavors—using elderflower tonic can elevate these already delightful recipes, infusing them with even more floral charm.
