summer love affair with elderflower liqueur | SIMA

The secret is out: My new favorite liqueur is featured in today’s New York Times!

I discovered St-Germain earlier this month while having dinner at Taste with Stephanox. She ordered a drink aptly named the St. Germain, and we were so intrigued by the flavor that we had to ask the waiter about the ingredients. He brought us a glass of St-Germain on the rocks to taste. It was delish on its own! My very untrained palate picked up on the exotic fruit flavors and a subtle aftertaste of tea (herbal). I could picture myself elegantly sipping it from the crystal I received as wedding gifts and instantly declared it my new summer drink.

The next week I picked up my very own bottle at Spirit World. Cocktails, anyone?
