St-Germain Elderflow Liqueur – A Summer MUST HAVE!

December 13th, 2010

A drink that I simply can’t get enough of is St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur.

This is honestly one of the most deliciously luxurious beverages I have ever used to mix, or drink purely on ice. First thing you will notice is the opulent glass bottle with Art-Deco/Gothic-esque lid and labeling. But there it alot more to this drink then just the bottle.

St-Germain is the creation of Robert J Cooper, founder of Cooper Spirits International - the same company that brought one of the other fabulous alcoholic beverages, Chambord.

Made with the very fragile and beautifully scented European Elderflowers, it is the first liqueur in the World to use Elderflowers in this capacity. Many of us have had Elderflower cordial, but St-Germain cannot be compared to it. St-Germain is smooth, clean and defined. St-Germain is unique in every sense of the word.

When you open the bottle, the aroma is simply irresistible. Lychees, musk and honeydew melon is probably the first thing that comes to mind.

One of the delicious concoctions I use St-Germain is:

- 2 Shots of Champagne, Sparkling Wine or Sauvignon Blanc,

- 1 Shot St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur

- Top up with 2 shots of soda or sparkling water

- Mix in a tall ice filled glass, and garnish with a lemon twist

I also love to put a shot of it on it’s own to a glass of Champagne. It’s so delicious!

Don’t just take it from me, try it for yourself and I guarantee you will fall in love with this French beauty.
