The St. Germain

While we can't always walk down St-Germain-des-Prés, we can always toast to Paris with St. Germain.

St. Germain is a liqueur made with fresh wild elderflowers, encased in a perfectly Parisian vessel reminiscent of a perfume bottle. My favorite paring (and only, thus far) is the signature cocktail cleverly named the "St. Germain."

2 Shots Champagne
1 ½ Shots St-Germain
2 Shots Sparkling Water or Club Soda
Stir ingredients in a tall ice-filled Collins glass, mixing completely. Think of Paris circa 1947. Garnish with a lemon twist. Drink and repeat.

Here's the lovely bottle waiting for me at home (a special thank you to the handsome man who surprised me with this. Happy wife = happy home, especially when that wife has a champagne glass in hand.)


  1. We adore this liqueur! It has been our drink of the summer. Our fave has been the French Gimlet w/ Hendricks Gin. So yum .. http://www.cocktailia.com/cocktail-recipes/french-gimlet.
