St. Germain Cocktails

I posted on Monday that I picked up a bottle of St. Germain over the weekend.  If you haven't heard of it, St. Germain is an elderflower liqueur.  I'm not sure what an elderflower is, but I've realized it's in just about every cocktail I really like.  So despite the $40 (!) price tag, I decided this weekend to go for it.  You only use a little bit of it at a time, so hopefully my bottle will last a long time.  I wanted to share two of my favorite drink recipes that use St. Germain.

Sparkling Grapefruit
1 part St. Germain
2 parts grapefruit juice
Top with a dry champagne

Gin & Juice
1 part gin
1/2 part St. Germain
2 parts white grape juice
Splash of club soda

Both can be served in a rocks glass.

Have you ever had St. Germain?  What's your favorite combo with it?

P.S. Nope, this post isn't sponsored, I just really like St. Germain ;)
