october 2015  /  the tasting panel  /  1 15 St. Elder Shines at Lincoln Tavern and Restaurant in Boston In the heart of South Boston, a classic East Coast tavern welcomes guests with nostalgic décor, like soaring tin ceilings and a brick interior that is the perfect setting for enjoying its hearty fare—smoked brisket, soft-shell crab BLT, sweet tea fried chicken and crispy pork ribs in midnight BBQ sauce. "Their food is sooo good," says Craig Brody, National Sales Manager, M.S. Walker. Lincoln Tavern and Restaurant has been a partner to M.S. Walker since the restaurant opened its doors in 2012. "St. Elder offers a flavor profile that custom- ers love: that beautiful, light refreshing honey- suckle," says Bar Manager Nicole Lebedevitch. "It's really beautiful with those sweeter notes of flower and honey, but doesn't have the high sugar levels that other liqueurs in this category have." The elderflower liqueur shows up on the restaurant's drink menu in the Judy Garland, a charming and nostalgic cocktail of Absolut Ruby Red, grapefruit, basil and St. Elder. Lebedevitch sites St. Elder's sensible price point and local origins—it's produced in Somerville, Massachusetts—as other elements of the liqueur's appeal. "Nicole and her team do a fabulous job making all sorts of great drinks and that's why they are the hottest place in the trendy South Boston area," Brody says. "Lincoln Tavern is a wonderful place to hang out, watch a game, or enjoy a cocktail!" A Nuevo Spritz ◗ ¾ oz. St. Elder ◗ ¾ oz.
