Place the strawberries into a metal cocktail shaker and muddle with the mint. Add the gin, agave syrup, lime juice and Rose Geranium Water. Fill the shaker with ice, seal and shake vigorously. Strain over a large ice cube in a cocktail glass. Top with Saffron-Infused Elderflower Foam and chocolate mint sprig.

Rose Geranium Water:

Pour 2 cups water into a small pot. Add the rose geraniums and bring to a boil. Take off the heat and allow the rose geraniums to steep for 2 days. Strain out and bottle the water for later use.

Carefully add the Spanish saffron to the bottle of elderflower liqueur. Allow to sit for 1 day. Pour 1/2 cup of the saffron-infused elderflower liqueur, the egg whites and lime juice into a professional cream whipper container.
