Cheers to November!

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
1/2 oz freshly squeezed lime juice

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

INNsider Tip: Visit the St. Germain website to learn more about this unique liqueur and for additional recipes.
