I just learned about a liqueur made of elderflowers that are picked in the Alps. These delicate white flowers grow in the wild and are harvested in the spring for just a few short weeks.
They are hand-picked and transformed into a libation that the website describes as, "...neither passionfruit nor pear, grapefruit nor lemon, the sublime taste of St-Germain hints at each of these and yet none of them exactly. It is a flavor as subtle and delicate as it is captivating."
Sounds intriguing, doesn't it? Here is a recipe using this unique liqueur; hope you enjoy it and the upcoming holiday season - Cheers!
St. Germain Cocktail
2 oz vodka
1 oz St. Germain elderflower liqueur
3/4 oz white cranberry juice

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake well, strain, & pour into cocktail glasses. Cheers!
