Introduction

The Elderflower Spritz is EO's version of the St-Germain cocktail invented by Robert Cooper, the creator of St-Germain liqueur. The difference is that we add lemon slices for citrus in the middle. Our recipe was developed as a French version of the Italian Spritz, to offer to guests who dislike the bitterness of Aperol. Its flowery essence is calming and soothing, with a welcome simplicity.

Ingredients

  1. 4 oz. Perrier-Jouet Grand Brut Champagne
  2. 2 oz. St-Germain elderflower liqueur
  3. 2 oz. club soda
  4. 3 thinly sliced lemon wheels

Steps

  1. Fill a large wine goblet with ice. Carefully pour the champagne over the large cold ice cubes, followed by the St-Germain, and finish with the club soda. Add the lemon wheels and stir slightly.
