MONDAY MIXOLOGY :: ELDERFLOWER MARTINI

I know, I know, it's Monday so we should be getting our sh** together, detoxing, and starting the week off on a healthy foot, i.e. not drinking cocktails, but I had to post about my new specialty and I liked the way "Monday Mixology" sounded so I'm going with it. I had this delicious martini a couple weekends ago on a date night with my husband and thought it was the best drink I'd ever been served. I finally got around to buying the ingredients this weekend and we had some friends over who verified that it is indeed an awesome drink.

To be honest, I never been much into cocktails...wait that's a total lie, I lived on "vodka sodas" in college and in my early twenties in NYC. Anyhow, in my adult years I should say, I'm not much of a cocktail girl unless we're at a special function or a girls night out...or I'm having a fun night out with my hubby...OKAY so maybe I am a cocktail girl after all?? I guess I should say I've never appreciated the flavor and what goes into mixing a delicious drink, until this one. I'm calling it the "Elderflower Martini" and I want you to make it and let me know what you think as soon as you can.


The martini is made of: 

3 parts vodka
1 part St-Germain
1 part fresh grapefruit juice
a splash of club soda

You shake everything up with ice in that cocktail shaker you got for your wedding and never use, and pour the mix into your prettiest glasses and  finally splash with soda. Your friends will love it and appreciate the effort of making them something different and special, I promise. 

PS If you've never had it, St-Germain is a liqueur is made from elderflower, a small, white starry flower that blooms through the spring and summer. In Europe, the flower is used in many foods and drinks, but in the U.S. it's gaining popularity in the form of this liqueur (obvi) and magical things are happening.
