Omphoy's Elderflower Gimlet Gets a Nod in GQ

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.   

The Elderflower Gimlet

2 oz. Hendrick's Gin
1 oz. St. Germain elderflower liqueur
1 oz. fresh-squeezed lime juice

- Build the cocktail in a shaker or mixing glass with all ingredients
- Add ice
- Shake vigorously
- Strain into chilled martini glass
- Garnish with a slice of lime
