Don’t Call Me Shirley

Elderberry Gin Liqueur, Giniferous Gin

Somewhere between the classic gin sipper, The Aviation Cocktail, and a sloe gin sour, lies the Don’t Call Me Shirley cocktail. The elegant Aviation was known for blending gin with Crème de Violette, Maraschino Liqueur & lemon juice. Don’t Call Me Shirley subs in the jammy PostModern Spirits Elderberry Gin Liqueur, an almost Appalachian Sloe Gin, in place of the Crème de Violette & Maraschino, and really causes the cocktail to shine. The hit of fresh citrus brings balance to the earthy nature of the liqueur, and the cocktail finishes with subtle delight.
