St. Germain Liqueur recipes

We recently discovered the floral taste of Gt. Germain Liqueur. It's made from the Elderflower. It's a great addition to a Cocktail.
Here are some of my favorite St. Germain Cocktail recipes.

Most all of the recipes are made by adding Ice to a Cocktail Shaker, the Ingredients, Shake and Strain into a Cocktail Glass. So I won't repeat these directions.

My new Summer Drink:
 Gin, St. Germain Elder Flower Liqueur, Violette Liqueur
and Brûlée Brandied Cherries.

I make a Cocktail with 2 oz. Vodka or Gin, 1 oz. St. Germain Liqueur, 1 tsp of Italian Cherry Syrup and one of the Cherries.
Here's the Jar of  Italian Cherries that I use:
