Recipe: Grand Elderflower Cocktail

If you haven’t tried St. Germain’s Elderflower liqueur yet, run, don’t walk, to your nearest liquor store and buy a bottle. Or rather, ask them to order you a bottle, because chances are it won’t be on hand. I lucked out and found some last week and have been enjoying experimental cocktails with it ever since. It’s got a strong taste of lychee, but also peach, apricot, and other fruits plus herbal notes, which makes it more intriguing than Soho lychee liqueur.

Here’s my favorite concoction to date:

Grand Elderflower Cocktail
2 oz. vodka
1 oz. St. Germain elderflower liqueur
1/2 oz. dry vermouth
dash Grand Marnier

Shake with ice in a cocktail shaker. Strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with an orange wheel.

Be careful. These go down easy but will knock you out in short order.

To make a simple Elderflower Martini just mix 2 oz. vodka with 1 oz. St. Germain and shake. Simple, and also delicious.
