Respect Your Elder – Cocktail of the Week

This week’s cocktail uses one of my very favorite ingredients.

If you’ve never had it, it’s a great addition to any bar, and will definitely have you respecting elders…

St. Germain bottle
Laurie Cataldo

Elderflowers that is. This week, we’re working with St. Germain.

It’s a French liqueur made from elderflowers, and it’s deliciously fruity. It’s got a sweet, almost pear-like taste, but there’s definitely something floral about it. It’s just really good.

One of my favorite SG cocktails (actually, one of my favorite cocktails EVER) is the one from David Burke’s Fromageriein Rumson…St. Germain, Sauvignon Blanc, club soda, and an edible candied hibiscus flower. It’s GORGEOUS and it’s dangerously good…yum.

David Burke St. Germain Cocktail
But seriously, how beautiful is this? You HAVE to try the St. Germain cocktail from David Burke Fromagerie in Rumson! (Laurie Cataldo)

We’re keeping it pretty simple for ours…like I said, Respect Your Elder!


  • 1.5 oz St. Germain elderflower liqueur
  • 3.5 oz. sparkling rosé wine
  • pomegranate arils, to garnish

Make sure your sparkling wine is well chilled before preparing this cocktail. Pour the St. Germain into a chilled champagne flute, top with the sparkling rosé, and garnish with a few pomegranate arils.


Switch it up:

There’s so much you can do with St. Germain, but in this case, give different sparkling wines a try to see how they work with the elderflower flavor.
Garnish with a strawberry heart instead of pomegranate arils.
If you can find candied hibiscus, try that as a garnish…they taste like fruit roll-ups!

*Please drink responsibly.*
