Elderflower Champagne Cocktail 

It’s time to bid farewell to the year gone by. That means a lot of corks of cheap champagne (er, sparkling wine) will be popping in unison at midnight.

Two more ingredients will add even more sparkle to your New Year’s eve toast: elderflower liquor (St. Germain) and pomegranate seeds. My neighbors made this signature cocktail for our neighborhood Christmas party, but its festive for any holiday or special occasion.

St. Germain is a French liqueur with light floral notes. It’s made from elderflower, a small, white starry flower that blooms through the spring and summer.

It pairs well with many drinks that you’re probably already making at home like vodka & tonics, martinis, and champagne – you won’t use it once and then let it collect dust on the bar.

Creating an Elderflower Champagne cocktail is almost as easy as popping a cork:

1 1/2 part St. Germain
Top with dry sparkling wine or Prosecco
Pomegranate seeds

Pour St. Germain into a flute champagne glass. Top with sparkling wine. Toss in a few pomegranate seeds.
