La Vie en Elderflower

Posted in Drink This, Recipes | Comments Off on La Vie en Elderflower

Serves 20.

 1 750 ml bottle dry rose wine (not sparkling. Example: La Vieille Ferme rose, $8/bottle)

2.5 cups (20 oz) St-Germain elderflower liqueur

30 oz club soda

Strawberry slice or raspberry for garnish


Mix the rose and St.-Germain in a pitcher—this can be done ahead of time.  Fill short tumblers or wine glasses with ice, add 2 oz of the rose/St-Germain mixture to each glass, and top with 1.5 oz club soda. Garnish with strawberry or raspberry.

To quickly mix larger or smaller quantities, do:


5 parts wine

4 parts St-Germain

6 parts club soda


If serving in a punchbowl, add club soda right before serving so it doesn’t go flat
