tasty floral cocktail
a cocktail shaker liquid measuring cup or jigger festive glasses
Prep Time: 10 Min
1 1/2 ounces gin 1/2 ounce elderflower liqueur 1/2 ounce lemon juice 4 ounces prosecco, champagne or sparkling wine — chilled lemon twist, for garnish
makes: 2 cups
Choose a gin with fewer juniper notes that will pair better with the elderflower liqueur.
St. Germain is a liqueur made from elderflowers, with a delicate floral taste.
Fresh squeezed lemon juice is my preference, but you can also use store-bought in a pinch.
Add all your ingredients to a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously.
Pour from the cocktail shaker into your glass.
To pair with the floral St. Germain, I reach for a dryer, more brut champagne.
Add a lemon twist (optional) and raise a glass! This drink is perfect for celebrating any occasion.
