St-Germain Elderflower Green Tea Cake with Gin & Lemon

No stranger to elderflower liqueur, I’ve loved its sweet floral notes the moment it’s heavenly nectar kissed my lips on a tipsy girls night out. Unlike the girls night, the story behind St Germain is as charming as the taste behind it. An artisanal, all-natural French liqueur created in 2007, elderflower blossoms are harvested once a year during a few fleeting weeks in summer – carefully hand picked at the height of their aroma. With flavor notes of peach, pear, and grapefruit, it’s dances softly on your palate and is a welcome, refined addition to your liquor cabinet. And after making this cake, trust me when I say it will bring a breath of fresh spring air into your kitchen.

My Smoked Eggplant Salad Recipe

I have an obsession with eggplant. Versatile as it is elegant, eggplant can be as delicate or as bold as you want it to be, and jives extremely well with many different flavor combinations. Since my last eggplant recipe post was one where it was sliced, roasted, and...
