  • 3/4 ounce St-Germain elderflower liqueur

Step 2Combine the bourbon, St-Germain, lime juice, simple syrup and apple juice in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake to combine, then strain into the highball glass.

Step 3Garnish the drink with a fan of thinly sliced apple and a mint sprig. Serve immediately
