Bloody Noon Cocktail Recipe

A citrusy cocktail for Mother's Day or any day

Perhaps one of the biggest advantages of brunch is that there’s no stigma to drinking before noon. While I do enjoy the classics like Bloody Marys or Mimosas, I also like to create new cocktails, like the Bloody Noon—which is St. Germain elderflower liquor mixed with Blood Orange soda. 

St. Germain is an elderflower liqueur, which legend—or PR—has it, is crafted from blossoms handpicked by beret-wearing men on bicycles in a secret location in the Alps. While that may be less than accurate, St. Germain does add a great floral and slightly herbal touch to drinks, making it especially good for afternoon—or before noon—drinking.
