Spiced Pear & Elderflower Collins

This variation on a collins is a creation of bartender Stacey Swenson of Manhattan bar Dante. Stacey calls for warming cognac but this can easily be substituted to gin or vodka for something lighter and brighter. The flavours of elderflower, pear, honey and spices (white pepper, ginger, nutmeg and clove) work wonderfully together.
