I really like the new St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur. It's all-natural, delicious, and very unique. The product is top quality, and the recipes the St. Germain folks have come up with are well considered. You can see some of the recipes over at the St. Germain website.
Most of those recipes are, obviously, designed to show off the St. Germain. I wanted to use a different approach, and show the versatility of the St. Germain product. I wanted to use it in more of an "every tiki drink needs a secret ingredient" way. The gorgeous floral aromas and hints of citrus and passion fruit seem to fit the bill perfectly.
1 oz St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur
1 oz Bacardi Superior
1 oz Lemon Hart Demerara Rum
.5 oz Licor 43
.5 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
.5 oz Fresh Lime Juice
1 drop absinthe
St. Germain is available now in New York and California, with wider distribution in the works. If you've come up with some St. Germain cocktails, post the recipes here or send me an e-mail. I am enjoying the flexibility of this product and am anxious to hear what the rest of you are coming up with.
