feb drink3.jpg

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.

1 oz. St. Elder liqueur 

1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice
