Earlier this summer our friends at Kanon Organic Vodkahad us over for a party in New York to celebrate the Swedish holiday of Midsummer. We had a great time and really enjoyed their feature drink…The Midsummer Cocktail. It was unlike any vodka martini….fruity, complex, and refreshing. St. Germain, a liquor made from Elderflower, adds a really special quality to the drink. We have been wanting to share the recipe with all of you, so they were kind enough to send it to us, along with a complementary bottle of Kanon. Here’s the recipe…
Makes 4 cocktails
- 8 oz of Kanon Organic Vodka
- 3 oz of St. Germain
- 3 oz of lemon juice
Pour all of the ingredients into a shaker filled with ice, shake well and serve. Garnish with a lemon twist. The Midsummer holiday is typically celebrated on the Friday after June 21st, but we think that this is a great drink for any summer day…enjoy!
