When it comes to Mother's Day cocktails, mimosas and bellini have always run the show. We'd like to kick off the season with something new. The fresh, springtime flavors of cucumber and elderflower struck us as the perfect combination for moms who love prefer dry gin over sparkling wine. Cheers!

2 thick Slices English Cucumber

1 Lemon Wedge

1 T Elderflower Syrup

2 oz Dry Gin or Vodka
