Champagne and St Germain Cocktail

St Germain is floral and sweet. It is made from fresh picked elderflower blossoms. Since it tastes sweet, we love balancing it with dry champagne or sparkling wine. It’s such an easy cocktail to make.

Since there are only two main ingredients, use a sparkling wine you love. Make sure it is dry, not sweet. If champagne is out of budget, look for “Cava,” which comes from Spain or an American sparkling wine that’s around $15. A dry Prosecco is a great option, too.

    How does St. Germain go with Proscecco? Is it too sweet to mix?

      Prosecco should be fine. I’d only advise against something sweet, like Asti Spumante or a sparkling moscato. – Joanne

    I had this last night at a party and OMG!!! Slight variation in that they substituted cucumber for the Orange added a sprig of mint. Simply outstanding. So much so, I purchased a bottle of St. Germaine on my way home!

    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!

    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!
