FAQs
What is St. Germain?

St. Germain is a French liqueur made from elderflower, a flower from the Elderberry Tree.

What does St. Germain taste like?

St. Germain has a combination of floral, fresh citrus, and tropical fruit flavors.

Can I substitute another liqueur if I don’t have St. Germain?

I created this drink around the elderflower flavor and would not recommend substituting it with another liqueur. However, St. Germain can be a little on the pricier side, so I often use an ‘off brand’ of elderflower liqueur when making this drink. I often use Drillaud Elderflower liqueur which is about half the cost of St. Germain, and I don’t notice the difference in taste between the two.

Can I use another fruit instead of raspberries?

Yes! I have tried making this drink with blackberries and absolutely loved it! You want to use a fruit that will produce a lot of flavorful juices when muddled.

What is a muddler?

A muddler is a bartender’s tool. It is used to crush, or macerate, fruits and herbs to bring out their flavors.

This St. Germain Raspberry Lemon Cocktail is fresh and fruity – a perfect summer sipper!

Ingredients
  • 2 ounces Vodka

  • 2 ounces St. Germain

  • 1/2 ounce lemon juice

  • 6 Raspberries

  • Ice

Directions
  • Combine all ingredients (except ice) in a cocktail shaker.
  • Using a muddler, crush the raspberries until they are broken up, or macerated.
  • Add 2-3 ice cubes. Put the top on the cocktail shaker and shake, shake, shake!
  • (optional) The muddled raspberries get stuck in the cocktail strainer, so I take the top off and use a mesh strainer to strain the liquid into a glass, or just pour straight in a glass to leave the muddled raspberries in your drink.

Notes
  • Having a cocktail shaker and muddler will be helpful in making this recipe.
