St-Germain Cocktail

St-Germain's Floral Flavor Fully Blossoms in This Simple Sipper

When added sparingly to a drink, St-Germain adds a certain je ne sais quoi, which is fitting given its French origins. (Some favorites include this gin and sage sipper and this sparkling pear cocktail.) Here, the elderflower liqueur is allowed to fully blossom (pun intended) in a simple concoction of sparkling wine and club soda, where its floral flavor is allowed to shine.

While I wouldn't recommend this tipple to anyone that's leery of floral flavors like lavender, rose, and orange blossom, it's otherwise quite the crowd-pleaser. It's easy to make and light on the alcohol, making it great for day-drinking.
