Spring is here! Spring is here! To celebrate the warm days and cool nights I decided to make Margaritas! But, I’d already made margaritas for this here project. So, what was I to do? No, a Daiquiri is not the correct answer! I made a different type of Margarita, one with St. Germain in it!

  • 1 oz. St. Germain
  • 1/2 oz. fresh lime juice

Combine ingredients in an ice-filled cocktail shaker and shake until cold. Strain into chilled cocktail glass (salted rim if you like.) Garnish with lime wedge.

Except I didn’t have silver tequila and I didn’t want to buy silver tequila. So, I used the tequila we already had. If you’re a real stickler you could call this a Golden Elderflower Margarita. I’m not a real big stickler though, so I won’t.

This was sweet and easy and delicious. A description that also describes springs here in Davis. So, it’s the perfect cocktail for this evening. D really liked them too and that is always a plus!

Misspent his youth reading genre-fiction; today, he is making up for it by reading large quantities of non-fiction literature. The fact that truth, in every way, is more fascinating than fiction still tickles him.
