'elderflower liqueur' on Serious Eats

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

Fresh Watermelon Margaritas

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

Jutland Calling

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.

Don't Mind If I Do

If creamy and floral is your cup of tea, try your hand at this smooth cocktail, created by Christopher Flett at Pourhouse in Vancouver BC. Be sure to shake fast and hard to create frothiness. More

The Herbaliser

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
