Forget the cosmo, this is my favorite new cocktail.  I asked my husband to make me something with St. Germain, a French elderflower liqueur and he outdid himself with this one.  The brand says the elderflower "imparts a crisp melange of flavors with hints of citrus and tropical fruits." I get the citrus, but think the other fruity flavors are more like orchard fruits, pear, apple, apricot, than tropical fruits. When shaken up with the vodka and fresh lime juice I think the drink has a fresh grapefruity quality.  Simple to make, just three ingredients, and a feast for the eyes garnished with lime.  For me they are cocktail perfection! Cheers! XO Martha
