What’s light and refreshing, bubbly and festive and tastes like citrus and sunshine? Our St. Germain and champagne cocktail served with a lemon twist.

What is St. Germain liqueur, you ask? It’s a sweet liqueur made from elderberry flowers with hints of peach, orange, grapefruit and pear. Each year, the hillsides of France are foraged for enough blossoms to produce this fine liqueur.

Often referred to as ‘springtime in a bottle,’ St. Germain liqueur has our seal of approval. In fact, we took a sip…or two, straight from the bottle while testing this champagne cocktail recipe. If it’s good enough to sip without a chaser, then we’re happy to keep it on hand in our liquor cabinet.

We incorporated champagne brut into this recipe for its dry taste, sprightly bubbles and low levels of sugar. Because the liqueur brings so much sweetness to the cocktail, adding the brut champagne helps to mellow out the citrus notes with just the right amount of fizz. If you like a good white wine spritzer, then you’re going to love this drink!
