share a drink? – the elderflower mint margarita

Elderflower Mint Margarita

This just might be perfection. Mixing three of my favorites, lime, elderflower, and mint, this sublime concoction is margarita meets mojito with a little something more. The Elderflower Mint Margarita, a.k.a. the St. Germain Mint Margarita was created by Mandy Kellogg Rye of Waiting on Martha, a design and style blog dedicated to creating a beautiful everyday. This would sure make my everyday a little more beautiful. Cheers!
