The Classic St. Germain Cocktail

It seems that St. Germain, an elderflower liqueur from France, is popping up everywhere these days. I’m seeing it on more and more bar menus and with good reason. Named after Boulevard St. Germain in Paris, the mildly floral and fragrant liqueur pairs perfectly with so many things; gin, vodka, champagne/Prosecco, white wine. I have fallen madly in love with it. My absolute favorite way to enjoy it is in the classic St. Germain cocktail. It is oh so refreshing and delicious, especially during these hot summer months.

  • Sprig of mint for garnish (optional)
