Hang onto your sweet tooth with this one, the Sweet Citrus and Flowers gin cocktail. Perhaps even have your dentist on speed dial. This gin drink is a pure flavor explosion, all wrapped up in sweet. If you like that sort of thing, this drink is absolutely for you.
This drink is relatively easy to make, just head for your home bar and fridge to collect all of the sweet things – an Elderflower liqueur, some Cointreau, and some orange juice. Oh, and gin. Which really gets drowned out in this drink, but then you can just add more? Maybe?

Some thoughts on the Sweet Citrus and Flowers Gin Cocktail
You can, if you dare, make this even sweeter by adding some simple syrup. Please tell your dentist hello on my behalf.
You can also cut a bit of the sweet by adding some lemon juice or lime juice instead of the orange juice.
Never hesitate to play with the amount of Elderflower liqueur here, as well, as that tends to be the sweetest part of this drink.
Add edible flowers if you have them!
