Or as the French might suggest, “Viva L’Apéritif!”
I have just discovered St-Germain Liqueur. Perhaps you already know of it? Around here it sells for under $40 a bottle but at 750 mls (about 24 ounces) you will get quite a few “servings” from it. And, yes, there are less expensive versions, but having reviewed the reviews, I think that I will recommend the “original”.
The liqueur is made from elderflowers and you can find out all about it at www.st-germain.fr. In the meantime, here is a recipe for The St-Germain Cocktail (for one):
2 parts (or ounces) Brut Champagne (not the real stuff but something dry). 1-1/2 parts St-Germain Liqueur 2 parts sparkling water or club soda
Stir in a tall, ice filled glass, mixing completely. Garnish with lemon twist.
Repeat as desired!
