Elderflower Margaritas

You know when you meet someone and you automatically feel like you’ve been friends for the entirety of your life? That’s what happened to me the minute I met Kaylee. She’s a woman after my own heart – she has talent seeping out of her pores – and I’m so excited to have her on board here at L&L headquarters. She’ll be popping in once a month to share some of her incredible recipes. Enjoy!

Hello again Lark & Linen readers! Kaylee from The Blondielocks here and so happy to be back to share another fun recipe with you this month. One thing you may not know about me, but will most definitely soon find out, is that I love a good cocktail. I make them quite frequently over on my blog, and truthfully, it was just a matter of time before I opted to share one of my cocktail creations here on Jacquelyn’s lovely blog.

Margaritas are one of my absolute favourite drinks to make, and after spending the last few years perfecting them (my fiancé and I have Mexican night a couple of times a month) I wanted to try a new-to-me take on the margarita. I had some friends over a couple of weeks ago and my plan was to make pre-dinner margaritas for each of us. I headed over to my bar cart to grab the classic margarita ingredients and found myself staring straight at a bottle of St. Germain. I grabbed it off my cart and without hesitation added an ounce of the sweet, floral, syrupy liquor and skipped my usual addition of pineapple juice or agave syrup. After one sip I knew immediately that I had to share this recipe.

I assure that these margaritas are just as delicious as they sound and I highly recommend adding a dash of elderflower liquor the next time you go to shake up a margarita for yourself. But be fair warned, they go down a bit too easily!

    I’ll have to try these asap. I discovered St. Germain about 10 years ago, and immediately my regular gin & tonic got an upgrade. Same-same with the marg. Happy weekend. A.
