Recipe For St-Germain Cocktail

Happy Hour: St-Germain Cocktail

For as long as I can remember, my go-to warm weather refreshment has been the gin and tonic. It's foolproof, simple to order, and steadfast in its thirst-quenching abilities.

But this all changed a few weeks ago in Aspen, when I sampled a St-Germain Cocktail. The heat and the strong sun were no match for this invigorating drink, which was effervescent and ever-so-slightly sweet, with subtle floral notes and hints of pear.

I took one sip, and just like that, the drink — which was like an adults-only version of Sprite — stole the G&T's spot as my Summer standby. See the recipe (which is great to make in large quantities) when you read more.

Recipe For St-Germain Cocktail 2009-07-06 12:51:49


  1. 2 shots dry sparkling white wine
  2. 1-1/2 shots St. Germain or elderflower liqueur
  3. 2 shots club soda


  1. Fill a tall Collins glass with ice. Add bubbly first, then St-Germain, then club soda.
  2. Stir completely (St-Germain is heavier than wine, and will settle to the bottom unless thoroughly mixed.)
  3. Garnish with a lemon twist, making sure to squeeze essential oils into glass.

Serves 1.

I love St Germain! It's so delicate tasting. I had it in a side car and it was wonderful.

not so Chancleta! St Germain is actually a very sweet elderflower liqueur. Another delicious drink is a glass of sparkling wine with st germain.
