Paris in a Glass

St. germain

St. Germain Mint Raspberry Bellini

This isn’t particularly vintage inspiring but I’m sharing nonetheless. I love St. Germain — it’s an artisanal French liqueur made from hand-picked elderflower blossoms. It’s not particularly sweet and it has a unique taste that might not be for everyone, but this bellini recipe I just whipped up is uh–mazing:

Ingredients:

1 whole peach or nectarine

3-5 raspberries

2-3 mint leaves

2 oz  St. Germain liqueur

1 oz Triple Sec (optional)

1 oz Spritzer or Water

1 oz Rose’s Lime Juice

(has to be Rose’s….all the others just don’t hit the nail on the head like Rose’s does)

Directions:

In a mixer or blender:

st. germain mint bellini fruit

Combine in a martini shaker: 2-3 heaping tablespoons of blended fruit and mint mix, water or spritzer, St. Germain, Rose’s lime juice & triple sec (optional) and SHAKE for 30 seconds.

Here is the best drink you will have this summer! It could also be a great candidate for your signature cocktail at the wedding maybe?
