Step By Step  

This holiday season, enjoy this festive and refreshing St. Germain™ cocktail mixed with tangy lime and cranberry juice.

As prepared by Well Plated,

Elderflower liqueur matches perfectly with lime and cranberry for a light and floral cocktail. 

It’s time for a little holiday spirit, St. Germain™ Cranberry Cocktail style!

I adore St. Germain™. If you’ve never tasted it, it’s an elderflower liqueur that adds an airiness and floral quality to cocktails. It’s delicate. It’s French. It makes me feel fancy and classy, which is particularly ironic considering that I’m usually wearing a light-up snowman sweater at the holiday parties I attend.

This year, we're combining our housewarming and holiday parties, mostly because I needed a deadline to force myself to finish unpacking. And these cocktails are definitely on the drink menu. They’re festive, refreshing – and even match my snowman’s ruby red nose.

 

St. Germain® Cranberry Cocktail

The base of the drink is a mix of cranberry juice and fresh lime juice. Choose whatever cranberry juice you like (I was feeling girly and opted for diet), but the lime juice must be fresh. This is no place for the prebottled stuff!

Next, the booze: Lovely St. Germain™ and vodka, the old reliable. Choose a clean-tasting vodka to ensure that the flavor of the St. Germain™ shines.
