A Spring Spritzer

A few weekends ago we had the most beautiful 70 degree weather, and we spent most of the day outside. As we pulled together a dinner on the porch, I started craving some kind of Spring drink, and remembered the elderflower liqueur we had bought on a whim a while ago. Luckily, Steve has several speakeasy and Prohibition-era cocktail books, and I was able to find an awesome little recipe for a drink called an Elderflower Spritz.

It was perfect for a breezy evening on the porch and I am sure this cocktail will make a reappearance soon!

Elderflower Spritz

4 oz Brut Champagne
2 oz St. Germain Elderflower liqueur
2 oz club soda
3 thinly sliced lemon wheels

Fill a large wine goblet with ice. Carefully pour the champagne over the ice cubes, followed by the elderflower liqueur, and then finish with the club soda. Add the lemon wheels and stir slightly.
