Chamomile and Elderflower Cocktail

St. Germain is my jam. Elderflower liqueur makes everything taste better. I had to go to 6 different liquor stores to track down the bottle of St. Germain and it was totally worth it. This cocktail is my ode to spring time, which is hopefully right around the corner.  Wishful thinking, right?
