Elderflower liqueur, that is. Elderflower liqueur is flowery, sweet and has a bit of “light green” taste to it. The French-made St. Germain label is still considered the standard bar for Elderflower liqueurs out there, but St. Germain sells for $20 more than this St. Elder label, produced in Massachusetts. Elderflower liqueurs are quickly gaining in popularity in the U.S., and the St. Elder label, based on reviews here and here, seems to be an excellent and far less expensive alternative to St. Germain.

Try Prosecco with Elderflower...you just might love it.

Of course, you can use Champagne instead, but why, when a bottle of Prosecco costs at least $10 less? See this enlightening comparison between Prosecco and Champagne here. Also, here’s an older but still good article about Prosecco. Sure, Champagne is drier, but no one is that interested in dryness when combining the bubbly with a sweet and fruity liqueur anyway.

    Put a half to a full ounce of Cranberry Juice in this to add a nice fruity flavor and a beautiful blush/rose look! You won’t be disappointed!!!
