Omphoy's Elderflower Gimlet Gets a Nod in GQ
Courtesy of GQ Magazine.
Michelle Bernstein's Palm Beach digs at the Omphoy Hotel serves a host of sexy cocktails from its downstairs O Bar and Lounge. One of them, an elderflower gimlet created by the hotel's mixologist, one-ups the classic lime-infused martini with a shot of St. Germain. The floral, Alpine elderflower liquor was enough to send men's mag GQ reeling: It wrote about the cocktail for its upcoming May issue, though you can read all about it right now online.
We're including the recipe for the drink after the cut.
