Thirsty Thursday--St. Germain Margaritas

This might be my all-time favorite cocktail ever.
I can't get enough, ever.

It is light and refreshing and the taste is so different from any other margarita that I've ever had.

St. Germain--I am smitten.

I had only had this delicious liqueur once before,
at a super fancy bar in NOLA and I really couldn't distinguish the taste.
The drinks in the bar were fabulous, 
but so full of flavors that it was hard to taste one flavor from the next.

I found this fabulous recipe here (one of my all-time favorite blogs).

The tastes are delicate with just a touch of mint and lime.

St. Germain Margarita
(slightly adapted from Waiting on Martha)

1 1/2 ounces lime juice
2 ounces St. Germain
2  1/2 ounces silver tequila
club soda
coarse salt
mint sprig for garnish
lime slice for garnish

In a shaker, add the lime juice, mint simple syrup, St. Germain, and tequila.  Shake well to combine. Pour into a glass rimmed with coarse salt and filled with ice.  Top with club soda.  Garnish with a sprig of mint and a lime slice.
