Look! What is that pretty bottle hanging out next to my egg-basket-turned-garlic-holder?
Ever since I read about it on Apartment Therapy/The Kitchn, I've always wanted a bottle of St. Germain at home.
So, I finally caved in and bought this. At just under $40 for 750 mL, it's a GREAT deal. It even comes with a recipe booklet(!) Well, okay, a little black book of drinks.
I mixed it with ginger ale. I also mixed it in a shot glass with fresh squeezed grapefruit juice (yes, the lengths I will go to for a good anti-corn syrup drink) and a dash of bitters. (I used angostura by the way...don't ask me how this differs from other bitters, I have not a clue).
In both cases, the drinks were too sweet, but nonetheless intoxicating! Next time, I will go for the recommended champagne or simple carbonated water.
I HIGHLY recommend this one to include in your collection. Sweet, smooth, sophisticated, and unique. It will WOW your guests, or keep this one all to yourself. Whatever YOU *wish*
