The Weekly Nightcap - Elderflower Fizz

i forgot just how much i love st. germain - an elderflower liquor - until i had a sip of Laurie's martini at Linwoods. she ordered the L75 and dang was it good! i even took a picture of the menu so we can try and re-create that st. germain martini sometime.

st. germain has a distinct flavor that is hard to describe. i can't quite put my finger on it. apparently i'm not the only one. according to their website it is

"Neither passionfruit nor pear, grapefruit nor lemon, the sublime taste of St-Germain hints at each of these and yet none of them exactly. It is a flavor as subtle and delicate as it is captivating. A little like asking a hummingbird to describe the flavor of its favorite nectar. Très curieux indeed, n'est-ce pas?"

ah the french, they really know how to say it, don't they?

needless to say, i went out and got a bottle of st. germain and have been thinking of ways to use it (until i perfect the L75).

tonight, i bring you the elderflower fizz. this light, bubbly drink combines st. germain with one of my favorite things, prosecco. it's simple yet elegant. it's light and refreshing. it's springtime in a glass.

i love breaking out bubbly on an ordinary day. it helps me remember to celebrate the little things in life. here's to friday's, to springtime, and to great news from a good friend. congrats L&L - cheers!
