Name that cocktail!

There is only one cocktail that I really, really like. I discovered it by chance at my favorite restaurant, since sadly closed down. I can get people to make it for me but it seems like I always have to explain the recipe three times and I feel there must be a name for it. Unfortunately, I have drawn a blank when visiting cocktail websites. Please help me ID this drink!

The recipe itself is simple. I am not sure about the optimal quantities, and plan to grab the ingredients and experiment at some point, but in the meantime I would just like to be able to order the damn drink and will tolerate flavor variations.
Vodka - plain
Elderflower Cordial - I like St. Germain but I gather Ikea has a nice one too
Mixing and serving
As far as I know, the mixing just consists of equal parts of the first three shaken with ice, which is then drained into a Martini glass and topped up with lime juice. No frosted rims or any of that, no garnish required, although I will enjoy and later eat sections or slices of lime whenever a bartender sees fit to add one.
I've had various substitutes and near-misses, which have been interesting, but this combination is one the only one I really enjoy.
