This cocktail recipe for an Elderflower Martini – made with St. Germain Liqueur – is a fan favorite. Don’t miss out!
You know we love our cocktails, right? Though we have some hugely popular cocktails on Garnish with Lemon, like this Gin, Elderflower and Prosecco Cocktail and the Elderflower Margarita, this Elderflower Martini is one of our all-time favorite cocktails. One sip of this mouthwatering cocktail and you will be on Team Elderflower, too.
Now don’t get freaked out by the fact that this cocktail has vodka and gin in the ingredients. Odd combination, I know, but it totally works. Every time I have one, I am reminded of just how much I love this drink. It’s not too sweet, not too tart, just a perfect balance of flavors.
But the key to this Elderflower Martini is the homemade sweet and sour, and it is totally worth the extra work. Trust me on this one. You may never go back to the bottled mix again. In fact, once you taste it in this drink, you’ll enjoy juicing those lemons and limes.
Another great thing about this martini? It’s easy to make a batch cocktail. So if you are hosting a gathering for any occasion, hanging out with friends, or just because it’s the weekend, it always fits right in.
This Elderflower Martini just might become your new go-to batch cocktail. I’ll drink to that. Cheers!
