Looking for a cocktail to wow your sweetie? Try St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur and sparkling wine.
Making the cocktail is simple – pour 1 oz St. Germain into a champagne flute and fill the rest of the flute with the sparkling wine of your choice (try Vega Barcelona Cava Brut Reserva, also a great sparkler to drink alone). Stir, float half a strawberry as a garnish.
Making St. Germain liqueur is a little more complicated. Freshly-picked elderflowers, which only retain their aroma and flavor for 3 days, provide the essence of this liqueur. The ephemeral nature of these petite, white blossoms requires a coordinated group of flower pickers on bicycles in the foothills of the french alps to gather the floral base for this intriguing liqueur. Oh! The romance!
