Amusez vos amis

MMM mm. I have a new favorite.

They say not to judge a book by its cover, but I was completely charmed by the product, bonus carafe and packaging of this St-Germain Summer Soiree set, featuring this lovely elder-flower liqueur from France. Himself remarked that elder-flower was a very nice flavor and he bought the set for me. *squee* The pretty flavors are not attended by the cloying over-sweetness one usually associates with liqueurs. I can't wait to put this in desert sauces and other things. This is definitely the beginning of a beautiful relationship.

Truly, the taste is extraordinary, and is indeed floral, but there's a lot of fruit in there, too. The carafe is pre-marked with measures for a champagne/tonic (or sparkling water)/St-Germain cocktail. YUM! Beautiful, vintage-style packaging.

There's also a St-Germain twist on the classic margarita, called a St-Rita. Sounds like a cocktail with my name on it, don't you think? Suspect I'll be running through a fair bit of this stuff during my workaholic grind, this summer.

à votre santé!
