Elderflower Gin Fizz Martini

I haven't liked gin in a long time.
Well, about 33 years.
It's a long story.
I won't bore you.

This is the first gin drink I've had and enjoyed.  I think it must be the St Germain, elderflower liqueur that makes it so awesome. Something about the herbal flavor in the gin, partnering with the floral bouquet of St. Germain.

Serves 1

2 ounces Gin
1 ounce St. Germain
1 teaspoon superfine sugar, 
         or simple syrup
2-3 ounces of Club Soda

In an ice-filled shaker, add all ingredients except the soda. Shake for about 15 seconds.

Strain into an ice-filled highball glass and top with soda.

A garnish would have been nice, but I couldn't think of one.
