“To live the life of a bon vivant, one must learn to adopt a modicum of insouciance and elegance. Beginning with the apéritif. The apéritif’s purpose is to stimulate one’s appetite and prepare for the inevitable joys to come. Répéter: Stimulate, not inebriate.”

Dans le monde de St-Germain, the liqueur created in the artisanal French manner from freshly hand-picked elderflower blossoms. C’est votre monde!

The French Twist

2 oz. Lee Spirits Barrel Aged Gin
3/4 oz. St. Germain liqueur
1 splash dry vermouth
1 tsp. simple syrup
fresh lemon twist

Wistful thoughts of orchards are evoked when one splashes the first three ingredients together.
Stir in an ice-filled glass, as if you are a revolutionary.
Strain into a coupe or martini cocktail glass.
Finish with a float of lemon peel and syrup, and tickle someone you love.
