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
1/2 ounce mint simple syrup
2 ounces St. Germain
2 1/2 ounces silver tequila
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.
