Perfect Springtime Libation

This cocktail is appropriately called the Fleur-De-Lis.

In the interest of full disclosure, I actually took this from a recipe in the Times-Picayune back about a year ago.   I’ve had many of them and can tell you it really is the perfect late afternoon weekend drink on a warm day.

Here’s what you”ll need

– Gin

– Elderflower Liqueur (this is that St. Germain Liqueur that has a light green color and comes in a very nice looking bottle.  See the photo above)

– Limes

– Cucumber

– Ginger Ale

Here’s what you do:

First, cut about 2-3 slices of cucumber (about a quarter inch thick) and muddle them in a cocktail shaker or large glass.  Then pour in one shot gin, a half-shot St. Germain, and the juice of one lime.    Mix that up pretty well and pour over ice.  Then top it off with a couple splashes Ginger Ale, and enjoy!
