I’m keeping things incredibly simple today with this champagne cocktail perfect for any New Year’s Eve celebration. There’s only two ingredients: St. Germain (elderflower liqueur) and brut champagne. To make this drink, fill up a champagne flute 1/3 of the way with St. Germain, then top off with champagne. Done. Instant party.
St. Germain is one of my absolute favorite liqueurs. If you’ve never had a taste, you simply must. Right now. Make your way over to the drinking establishment closest to you, 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. Continue reading for the recipe.
