This cucumber vodka elderflower cocktail is SO refreshing that you’ll want to make it every summer night and every weekend for brunch.

It’s light and floral from the elderflower while also crisp from the cucumber vodka.

What is St. Germain?

St. Germain is an elderflower liqueur that is rising in popularity! It’s made from the elderflower, shocking, I know, which is picked in the French Alps.

I feel fancy just talking about it.

The elderflower itself is a tiny white flower that gives drinks a really lovely bright and floral taste.

Do I need to use real lime juice in this cucumber elderflower cocktail?

Not at all! I like to keep around bottled lime juice for cocktails since it’s such a staple.

I would avoid any sweetened lime juice to avoid changing the flavors. Something that is 100% juice or juice from concentrate are good bets.
