A House of Flurfel Cocktail:

One part youngberry juice…

One part Dryck Fladder…

Which is, of course, Elderflower juice, available at the Ikea cafeteria…

Add gin.

Et voila. The Midlife Crises.

    Sounds yummy!

    I came up with a not-dissimilar drink recently that combined lavender soda, Botanist gin, and a splash of St-Germain Elderflower liqueur. Delish! 🙂

      What do you call it? An English Garden? Aromatherapy? Also, there’s an Elderflower liqueur? Is it hard to find?

        Oh, dear. Hadn’t actually considered a name for it. ‘English Garden’ sounds good – altho’, given the specific gin involved, ‘Islay Garden’ might work better.

        As for availability of the St-Germain, you should be able to type in your postal code at , which is supposed to show stores that have ordered the product over the past three months. The system is less-than-perfect, so I’d suggest calling to confirm before making a trip.

        I just noticed now that the URL I’d typed in seems to have vanished. It was: .

    More importantly, happy birthday. I hope your forties will bring all kinds of goodness.

    I knew Ikea was good for more than just small storage solutions. Happy Birthday!

      Perhaps I should rethink my tags… I’m so not 40. Waaaay not 40. Well, almost 40.

        Oh, I’m so sorry about that – very embarrassed, actually. I’m just gonna back out quietly now and see if my baby’s ready to go pick up his brother in the snow.
