Measure gin.


Choose a gin with fewer juniper notes that will pair better with the elderflower liqueur.

Measure St. Germain.


St. Germain is a liqueur made from elderflowers, with a delicate floral taste.

Squeeze lemons.


Fresh squeezed lemon juice is my preference, but you can also use store-bought in a pinch.

Shake it up!


Add all your ingredients to a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously.

Add to festive glass.


Pour from the cocktail shaker into your glass.

Top with champagne.


To pair with the floral St. Germain, I reach for a dryer, more brut champagne.

Garnish and enjoy!


Add a lemon twist (optional) and raise a glass! This drink is perfect for celebrating any occasion.
