I love a good cocktail and pick one over a glass of wine 9 times out of 10. My liquor of choice is vodka (I always splurge and get Grey Goose as I find it far superior to any other brand). Vodka mixes well with almost anything, but my very favorite addition is St. Germain (elderflower liquer).
Mix equal parts vodka and St. Germain over ice. Top with either champagne (for a boozier kick) or club soda (simpler and calorie free), and squeeze in lots of lemon. Cheers!
