Recently I have been all about finding new cocktails. Some people deal with stressful situations by baking or cooking. I, apparently, mix up drinks. Hey, to each his own.
I first came across the idea for this cocktail while Marc and I were in London and I ordered a version of it at dinner one night. The description just said elderflower liquor, prosecco, mint, and lime. Sounds easy enough, right?
So, when we got back to NYC I bought a bottle of St. Germain and got to work. It turns out there is a similar cocktail called The Hugo that uses some of the same ingredients, so I worked off of that. After some trial and error, I came up with this recipe. Marc doesn’t like the mint aspect, so I leave it out for him.
It’s the perfect cocktail for these hot summer nights with it’s refreshing bubbles and subtle sweetness. It may just be our new go-to drink.
1 oz Elderflower Liquor (St. Germain)
4 oz Prosecco
Splash of Club Soda
Mint leaves (optional)
Combine St. Germain and juice from the lime in a glass with ice. If including mint muddle the mint leaves with the St. Germain and lime, then strain into a glass with ice. Top with prosecco and a splash of club soda (add more to taste). Stir together and top with mint leaves for garnish (optional).
