Weekly Boozer: St. Vodka Soda

In Uncategorized, Weekly Boozer on April 2, 2011 at 7:05 pm

This is inspired by a weird, delightful and peculiar liqueur: St. Germain which is made from elderflower.  If you have never had it I suggest you try it.  I bought a bottle, which is gorgeous by the way, and well a little goes a long way so we are still mixing it up!! As for the vodka we are using a gifted bottle:  Zodiac Vodka (Gemini) it’s made from potatoes.  Yes alcohol made from flowers and potatoes on a warm spring afternoon – that’s how we roll.   More formally this is just a twist on the vodka soda.

St. Vodka Soda

1 ounce vodka, chilled
1/2 ounce St. Germain
soda water
ice
twist of lemon

Fill glass with ice, add alcohol, squeeze of lemon, top with soda water, stir and garnish with twist of lemon.  Enjoy!  picture shown above is a double…

Simple. Refreshing. It’s like elderflower flavored water… with bubbles.  Only a whisper of sweetness, the vodka is flavorless – as it should be or so I am told and I can’t wait to try it with lime! Hope your staying cool on this hot Texas afternoon!
