A gorgeous elderflower liqueur. Delicious chilled on the rocks and, given bartending demi-god Simon Difford's input into its creation, it's no surprise that St Germain is versatile enough to star in a host of cocktails too.
Our favourite St. Germain Summer Cocktail is The St. Germain Signature:
2 Shots Champagne or Dry White Wine
1 ½ Shots St-Germain
2 Shots Sparkling Water or Club Soda
Stir in a tall ice-filled glass, garnish with a lemon twist.
Most beautifully elegant steam-punked 1920s bottle design crossed with a bit of Louis XVII decoration on closer inspection. Substitutes well for any lychee liquer. A little sweet for my taste, try it with equal part vodka, a tiny dash of angostura and fresh lime to taste. Soda rather than lemonade.

We used this cocktail for wedding receptions instead of straight Champagne - it is proving to be hugely popular. We add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice to balance the flavours - Early summer in a glass. Well worth trying.

It's amazing to find this great product at this price. In France, liquor stores thinks it's a high class liquor so they think we can pay it 35 €/75cl just because it the bottle looks good and it's called "St Germain". About the taste, it's amazing. Very sweet, smooth, great with pear flavored grey goose and other cocktails.

I tried this in a Cocktail from the famous Berlin Viktoria Bar called "Lichtung", combined with das Korn (www.daskorn.com) . ABSOLUTELY fantastic and these two main components blend wonderfully!

This is a lovely, complex, wonderfully balanced and flavored liqueur without a hint of cloying sweetness. YUM! I drank it straight up.
