St. Germain and Champagne

by on December 30, 2011 · 8 comments

Alright, here’s mine…. you saw Adam’s right, the Champagne Cosmo… it is completely delicious, but I needed to share one of my own, well not really my own, it is inspired by the St. Germain website, but, who cares, I drank it. Have you ever had St. Germain? It is certainly a liqueur  you want with something… to me, it’s a tad too sweet by itself, but when paired with something a little drier.. well, I’m happy! It’s actually made from elderflower… I’m not 100% sure what that means at the moment, but it sounds cool, right?

Anywho…. it’s delicious and perfect for New Years! Enjoy!

This sounds like the perfect way to brighten up a cocktail this evening. Can I ask where you got your coupe glasses? I have been looking for something similar for ages!

Hi Joanne-
Just wanted to let you know that Elderflowers (also called Elderblow) are the beautiful white flowers from the Elder tree. If left on the tree they turn into Elderberries. Both the flowers and berries have been used medicinally for many many years to treat colds and flu, so now you can feel virtuous about drinking St. Germain!

We might just have to get ourselves another bottle, then! Thanks for the info, Kathryn!
