time traveler

3/4 oz Citadelle Gin
3/4 oz Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
3/4 oz St. Germain
3/4 oz Lemon Juice

Shake with ice and strain into a rocks glass.

For my second drink at Brick & Mortar, I asked bartender Phil MacLeod for a drink called the Time Traveler that I had spotted on one of the Spin the Bottle menus that they had put on Twitter. The Time Traveler was served at the Spin the Bottle Turns 1 anniversary event a few weeks ago, and this elderflower Aviation of sorts was dubbed after the Saint Germain character who is a mysterious time traveler in the Castlevania video game series.
The Time Traveler greeted the nose with a gin and Maraschino aroma. The fruity sip shared the lemon juice and St. Germain's pear-like notes, and the swallow began with gin and ended with the Maraschino and St. Germain's floral elements.
