Elderflower Margaritas

Elderflower Margaritas

Are you familiar with elderflower liqueur? 

I had no idea what it was until I tried a French 77. Once I tried it, I was hooked. I became richer in experience but poorer in, well, finances because I had to pay for the St-Germain. While I 100% recommend that you try the French 77 if you aren’t already familiar (Mother’s Day would be the perfect opportunity), I have a different cocktail for you today.

As a taco lover, my favorite pseudo-holiday is coming up: Cinco de Mayo. I’m not sure who sponsors Cinco de Mayo, Taco Bell or the tequila industry, but I’m a big fan. Tacos? Always. Margaritas? Sure, especially if there is elderflower liqueur involved.

So I must introduce you to the elderflower margarita. In full disclosure, I have had two tonight: one while cooking my lentil tacos and the second one while eating my lentil tacos. What does this mean? It means I’ll be checking over my spelling and grammar tomorrow.

Don’t judge. The margaritas made me do it.

You might be asking what the margaritas want you to do? I have no idea, friend, but I encourage you to make them and find out. (Just don’t operate any machinery, please and thank you.) (Don’t text your ex either.)

Elderflower Margaritas

The ingredients below are per margarita, so double or triple as needed.


  • coarse salt (optional, for the rim)
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1.5 oz tequila
  • 1.5 oz elderflower liqueur (St-Germain or similar)
  • 1 teaspoon agave syrup


  1. If you want a salt rim, rub the glass rim with a lime half and then dip the glasses into the coarse salt.
  2. In a cocktail shaker full of ice, combine all remaining ingredients and shake vigorously.
  3. Add ice to your glass and add the margarita mixture and serve.
