A collection of essays about Michelle Obama's influence fits perfectly with our Black Excellence theme in February. Our favorite FLOTUS made us proud with her poise, intelligence, family values, and elegance. Oh, how we miss her. So, we're pairing The Meaning of Michelle with a classic cocktail, and adding an opulent twist: elderflower liqueur.
2 oz. vodka
1 oz. St. Elder liqueur
1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice
Lemon to garnish
Add ingredients to shaker with ice. Shake and then strain into martini glass. Garnish with lemon and go forth and be fancy.
