My love affair with St-Germain continues to flourish.
Sangria Flora. A refreshing and summery wine cocktail that will put a smile on your face and make you believe that you’re the luckiest hummingbird in town. Fragrant, floral, fruity, flirty, fresh. Try saying that a few times over after you’ve had a glass or two. Try saying it right now. Laughs. Buy yourself (or someone you love - or someone you want to love you) a bottle of St-Germain and treat yourself to a bouquet of loveliness. Seductive. Delicious. Memorable. Elderflower blossoms are a pretty far stretch from your every day hops and barley, I’d say. Take note of the post I wrote about The St-Germain Cocktail. Sheesh, that was in 2008?
My loves only grows stronger.
1 bottle Sauvignon Blanc or other dry white wine
1 cup St-Germain
2 fresh peaches, sliced or diced
5-6 fresh strawberries, sliced or quartered
6 fresh raspberries, whole
1 bunch fresh grapes, red or green, sliced, halved or whole
Stir ingredients in a pitcher or carafe. Soak for approximately 15 minutes or longer. Serve in an ice-filled glass with more fresh fruit. . . created by Lynnette Marrero and slightly adapted here . . . Source: St-Germain
Try this with Prosecco if you're in the mood for a little sparkle. I've made it with apricots, apples and strawberries. The pitcher above was made with pears, strawberries and a Sicilian orange. I also added a splash each of apricot and orange liqueurs. Be creative. Be fresh. And eat your fruit.
