Cocktails: St. Germain & Champagne


There’s only two ingredients: St. Germain (elderflower liqueur) and brut champagne. To make this drink, fill up a champagne flute 1/3 or 1/2 of the way with St. Germain (adding more will make it sweeter), then top off with champagne. Done. Instant party.
St. Germain is a floral tasting liqueur. And isn’t that bottle of St. Germain beautiful? If you’ve never had a taste, you simply must pick a bottle up soon! Make your way over to Salvador Dobbs in Boerne and ask the bartender for a shot, and savor each sip of fragrant, flowery goodness.

The sweetness of the St. Germain balances the dryness of the brut champagne, creating a well-balanced cocktail that can easily be enjoyed all night long.



What does St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur taste like?
St. Germain liqueur is both fruity and floral with a pleasant sweetness. The main flavor is a green, floral note from elderflower blossoms. The liqueur is rounded out with notes of stone fruit (peach), citrus (grapefruit) and tropical fruit (lychee). I also notice a little bit of Asian pear.

St. Germain is a very pleasant and approachable liqueur. You can sip on it in a glass with ice or enjoy it in a St. Germain cocktail (like this one!).

What is St. Germain Liqueur made of? The recipe for St. Germain Liqueur is a mystery; however, we do know that each bottle is infused with up to 1,000 hand-picked, wild elderflower blossoms. The blossoms are picked during peak season (summer in France) to ensure the best flavor and aroma.
