If you’re a fan of the classic gin and tonic, shake things up by adding a splash of elderflower liqueur and savor every sip of your St. Germain Gin and Tonic Cocktail!! I served these on the 4th of July and they were a HUGE hit!
St. Germain Gin and Tonic Cocktail
Are you familiar with St. Germain? Made with fresh, hand-picked elderflower blossoms, it’s an artisan French liqueur sold in a stunning art deco bottle. A few years ago, I stocked my liquor cabinet with this versatile spirit to make some festive Pear Cosmopolitans for my book club. This Elderflower Sangria also caught my attention. Sweet and floral, it’s a lovely compliment to both the gin and lime in a gin and tonic. Plus it turns a commonplace cocktail into something extraordinary!
