St. Germain and Champagne

St.-Germain-and-Champagne 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.

    I love St. Germain. I just read an article about infusing it, really interesting but I wonder if it will overpower the delicate flavors. This looks perfect.

      Ah ha! Very interesting. I would think the delicate flavors would get overpowered. I’m also not sure if I’d tinker around with a $35 bottle of liqueur! But you never know ;)
