My Comment to my namesake cocktail: How nice to be thought of while not in the company of others – drinking. I love St. Germain elderflower liqueur, usually with sparkling wine and a little sparkling water. I wish I had the same grape vodka and sparkling wine on hand that my pals did…I made it with Tito’s vodka (of course) and a cremant I found at the nickel sale at Bev Mo: Toques et Clochers Crement de Limoux.
Anyhoo – I LOVED this drink.
Which then inspired me to make more pink drinks:
Ingredients: 1 ½ ounces vodka (Tito’s All-American), ½ ounces Chambord, 3 Ounces Trader Joe’s Pink Lemonade
Comments:Very refreshing and light, good as an aperitif.
Eve’s Pinked Ice
Ingredients: Chambord, Lemon Juice, Orange Juice, vodka.
Comments: Orange juice cut the sweetness of the Chambord, tasted like a Big Stick Popsicle. Nice on a hot day.
