I had my first sip of you two years ago and since then we have been inseparable. I always have you stocked at home, and you’re the star in one of my very favorite cocktails ever. I order you (with champagne) at restaurants and bars and taverns and even the occasional club, and you never fail to please me with your sweet, captivating flavor.
That’s Megan, Meghan, Elizabeth, Emily (our gracious host) and Daisy – this was while we were waiting for the beautiful Amy. We all agreed that each of us will create a cocktail, and also bring some canapes to share.
And because we think you go so well with different kinds of foods, we had an abundance of nibbles that night:
Did we think you went well with all these things (as well as a few other undocumented foods)? Yes, you certainly did.
As for the cocktails – well, we knew that once we put you in a drink that it would be sublime – so we all came up with some St-Germain libations:
And there were a few more that my camera didn’t get to capture: Amy’s St. Honore 75 cocktails, Meghan’s pitcher of lemony basil concoction, and Daisy’s white wine-gin-and St.Germain mix.
We had the most fun, summer evening together! We were so happy to enjoy a night filled with laughter, food, and you. I am sure that we’ll be with you again soon.
Oh and St-Germain, I don’t care if the dash in your name makes for bad SEO. I also don’t care that you’re not really a saint. (But really, who is?)
