I had never tasted St. Germain Liquor before I made this drink.  I was leery. A liquor derived from the elderflower blossoms….would it be good? It is. Tasty and delicious. Mixed with all wonderful flavors of cognac, gin, ginger and apple juice this cocktail is perfect for keeping you in the holiday spirit 🙂

Last night I went into the city and saw the Christmas tree. It was so beautiful. Even thought there were hundreds of people and I was packed in like a sardine, it was still fun 🙂

Mmm... I like St. Germain. I was all good until I saw the gin, but I'd still try this drink. :)
