Elderflower St Germain + Goose cocktail

Woah you guys, in the most non-dramatic way possible, this could be the best cocktail I've ever made. Refreshing, tick. Sweet, tick. Easy, double tick. 

Enter, the Elderflower Grey Goose Vodka* + St Germain Le Fizz, the summer drink to end all summer drinks. 

*only available in World Duty Free at airports, don't ya know

The perfect pre-appetiser before an evening of entertaining, or get stuck in with your guests and throw a bring your own booze cocktail bash. I want to make trying different cocktails a new monthly tradition with Neil and/or friends. 

It's so easy too.


1 1/2 parts grey goose vodka
1 part st germain elderflower cordial
1/2 a freshly squeezed lime 
Topped with soda water
Crushed ice


Pour all ingredients except soda water into a cocktail shaker (I don't own a cocktail shaker yet, so used a glass and stirred fast which worked fine) 

Shake briefly over ice and double strain into a chilled champagne flute.

Top with soda water, stir and enjoy with friends  

When you're jetting home from your summer holiday this year, don't forget to stock up on cocktail ingredients at the World Duty Free (and banish those holiday blues!)
