things have been so wild around here that i almost forgot to post this week's cocktail - whew!
Shelley, of Pas de Deux, posted these on Cassandra's blog a few weeks ago and I literally went straight to the liquor store (actually, no. it was more like i called matt and asked him to swing by on his way home from work.). I've pretty much not stopped drinking them (and constantly re-buying the ingredients.) since then ;)
They are perfectly fun and fresh - just what the sultry evenings around here are (already) calling for. sheesh!
their signature recipe!
- 2 parts Brut Champagne (or you can use Dry Sparkling Wine but I don't)
- 1 1/2 parts St-Germain
- 2 parts Club Soda (or you can use sparkling water but (again) I don't)
Fill a tall Collins glass with ice. Add Champagne first, then St-Germain, then Club Soda. Stir completely.
* Garnish with a lemon twist, making sure to squeeze essential oils into the glass.
* St-Germain is heavier than wine, thus it will settle to the bottom unless mixed thoroughly. (and if it sits for a while it requires a re-stir)
oh - and i really did listen to pink martini while i made and drank these (the first time, anyway!)
