We're always a bit wary of elderflower liqueur, but it doesn't take over in this supremely balanced and fresh-tasting gin cocktail, a signature brunch drink at Beretta in San Francisco. More

La Vie en Rose

Peychaud's bitters gives this cocktail from Chicago's Pops for Champagne its bright red color, elderflower liqueur gives it sweetness and floral flavors, and brut Champagne gives it a crisp, tickling finish. More

The Devereaux from Freemans

We've always liked sparkling wine with a splash of elderflower liqueur, but this highball from Freemans restaurant in NYC raises the bar a bit with the addition of Bulleit bourbon and some tart lemon to even it out. More

Fresh Watermelon Margaritas

Serious Eats Maggie Hoffman Post a comment

To get the watermelon flavor to really come through in this thirst-quencher, you'll whir an ample amount of ripe cubed melon (seedless is best) in a blender with a little kosher salt. Be sure to strain through a fine-mesh sieve to avoid any pulp in the drink. More

Sweet, round, and aromatic, this 3-ingredient cocktail is an ideal post-dinner sipper. Lachlan Mackenzie from Pourhouse in Vancouver, British Columbia calls for Bornholmer Bitter in this recipe, but you can substitute with The Bitter Truth's Old Time Aromatic Bitters to provide the characteristic cinnamon and cardamon flavors of this drink.

Brunch Drinks: The Herbaliser

Drinks Heather Arndt Anderson Post a comment

What's nicer in the morning than a cup of herbal tea? A cup of herbal tea with a shot of honey liqueur and elderflower cordial. You don't have to be a gray-braided apothecary hippie to appreciate herbs in the morning. More

The Herbaliser

Serious Eats Heather Arndt Anderson Post a comment

There's nothing more benign than chamomile, yet its softly floral aroma is a natural to pair with flower liqueurs like St. Germain (or Galliano), and the honey liqueur Bärenjäger provides additional sweetness and body along with really buzzy honey flavor and a nudge of booze. Adding these to a warm beverage volatilizes the herbal and floral compounds and brings much more botany to the nose than simply drinking them on ice or with sparkling wine. More

Drinks Andrew Strenio Post a comment

Relatively unknown in North America until about five years ago, elderflower liqueur has come a long way from its humble origins as a medicinal cordial. Today we're comparing the popular brand St-Germain to another version from Pür Spirits. More
