St Germain
St Germain


This summery liqueur is made from Elderflowers picked in the foothills of the Alps. The website (www.stgermain.fr) states that “for but a few fleeting spring days, a man, un paysan, will gather wild blossoms for your cocktail  ...after gently ushering the wild blossoms into sacks and descending the hillside, the man who gathers blossoms for your cocktail will then mount a bicycle and carefully ride the umbels of starry white flowers to market.”


It’s all wonderfully tongue in cheek and the liqueur is delicate and lovely. You can add it to prosecco or champagne or use it in a variety of cocktails. We have chosen this spin on sangria for you to try at home
