7 x St Germain Cocktails You Should Try..!

St Germain Cocktails

“St~Germain is a French liqueur made with fresh elderflowers, hand-picked once a year in the late spring. As the world’s first, finely crafted all-natural elderflower liqueur, its flavor is as subtle and delicate as it is captivating, evidenced in its sublime notes of peach, pear, and grapefruit, yet none of them exactly.”


Spiced Pear & Elderflower Collins

This variation on a collins is a creation of bartender Stacey Swenson of Manhattan bar Dante. Stacey calls for warming cognac but this can easily be substituted to gin or vodka for something lighter and brighter. The flavours of elderflower, pear, honey and spices (white pepper, ginger, nutmeg and clove) work wonderfully together.

There are two popular recipes for the Elder Fashioned each calling for alternate base spirits. Phil Ward of Death & Co, New York City created his Elder-Fashioned with Plymouth gin in 2007 and Simon Difford used bourbon whiskey whilst at The Cabinet Room in London the year prior. Both recipes were published shortly after St-Germain first released their elderflower liqueur.
