Howdy!! Today I bring you a fabulous concoction featuring my favorite liqueur, St. Germain. This fabulous liqueur is made with elderflowers, and has a sweet herbal taste. It is a good complement with sharper libations such as gin and vodka.
Luckily, this cocktail features all three!
- ½ oz. Vodka
- ½ oz. Gin
- 1 oz. St. Germain Elderflower liqueur
- 2 oz. Fresh sour mix*
Pour all ingredients in a shaker with ice, and mix well. Serve in a coupe glass, and garnish with a lime slice. You can increase the amount of gin or vodka or both for a sharper taste. Enjoy!!
* For fresh sour mix, first make simple syrup: bring one cup of water and one cup of granulated sugar to boil, stirring until dissolved, and set aside to cool. After cooling, add one cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice and ½ cup fresh squeezed lime juice to the simple syrup. Shake well before serving. It will keep for two weeks in the refrigerator.
