Classic St. Germain Cocktail with a Twist

Classic St. Germain Cocktail

by Amber on January 1, 2013

Happy New Year’s Day to you! How about a little hair of the dog that bit ya?

If I’m completely honest with you, I planned to post this drink recipe before the turn of the year, but bacon rolls took precedence. I’m sure you understand. Bacon always comes first.

We picked up a bottle of St. Germain before our cookie swap party in December mainly because I fell in love with the beautiful bottle and the recipe book that came with it. Turns out it was a fortunate decision, because St. Germain has become my new favorite thing ever.

Sweet and slightly floral, the golden liqueur adds a tongue-tapping zing to many cocktails. (You can check out the St. Germain website for even more recipes.

This particular cocktail, the Classic, is simple enough: St. Germain, Prosecco, and club soda. But the Brit and I added our own signature style by stirring in a little homemade grenadine too. Grenadine gets a bad wrap – that sickly sweet, high fructose corn syrup filled star of Shirley Temples.

Real grenadine, made by your own hands, is a thing of majesty that adds just the right fruity notes to so many cocktails. I’ll give you the recipe in my next post. For now, go mix yourself a Classic St. Germain, and toast 2013 one last time before we head to work tomorrow.
