Recipe: St. Germain Seasonal Variations

The other day during our daily news briefing, we made mention of St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur and the customized, high-end bicycle now being sold on its web site. Along the way, we also noticed updated cocktail recipes, and tried a few out last night over a marathon Magnum P.I. session, courtesy of Netflix Instant.

1 part gin (Nolet Gin preferred, but any will do)
1 part St. Germain
¾ part freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
1 dash Peychaud’s Bitters

 

 

Shake all ingredients with ice and serve in a coupe or martini glass. Garnish with an orange twist.

UPDATE: While we were  filing this post for deadline, we received word over the PR wire that St. Germain has been acquired by Bacardi for an undisclosed amount. Quite the coincidence. No word on whether or not the bikes will be staying around during this merger.
