Aspen Times Weekly Libation: Salad Shooter

by Jeanne McGovern


Pearl Cucumber Vodka

St-Germaine Elderflower Liqueur

Dash of pink grapefruit juice

Lime wedge, for garnish

The name of this drink is deceiving: It is not at all salad-like (if you’re thinking green salad, Greek salad, kale salad, etc.) nor is it shooter. But since it was served during the cocktail hour of a recent dinner party at the Hyatt Grand Aspen’s Bison Bar, I figured it was worth a try. And I’m glad I did. This pinkish concoction was light and refreshing — a summer salad, perhaps. And when I learned it was made with one of my favorite liqueurs — St-Germain — I was hooked. I have often wondered what drinks to make with the elderflower spirit, and now I know.
