St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur Review

post icon

I will freely admit that I am a St. Germain addict and, thanks to St. Germain, an elderflower addict too. Since my discovery of this delightful liqueur a few years ago, I have bought a number of bottles and literally added it to everything. It brightens a Champagne cocktail, makes gin sing and is a potent addition to any punch bowl. So you can only imagine our excitement when a bottle magically arrived in the … Read more

Strawberry Tarragon Cocktail

post icon

Basil and mint are usually my go-to cocktail herbs. Occasionally, I’ll get a little creative with the rosemary. But tarragon is an herb I hadn’t mixed with until recently. And the results were fantastic!

I was at a dinner party and it was cocktail time. Someone suggested mixing tarragon with the garden-fresh strawberries we had available, and a new, delicious cocktail was born.

Lychee Gimlet

post icon

Until this drink, I’d never had a cocktail made with fresh lychees. Their bumpy shell houses a squishy, gelatinous fruit with a little seed inside that. It tastes like a sweeter more syrupy grape with an exotic fruit twist. Nolet’s Gin sent me a box of lychees and a suggestion for how to use them … a Gimlet made with lychees. How could I resist?

In case you’ve never seen a lychee before (I hadn’t), … Read more

Negroni

post icon

This week’s drink is the Negroni! I’ll admit I didn’t love my first Negroni, but now I can’t imagine why. Made with London dry gin, Campari and sweet vermouth, this Italian aperitif has a strong character and unique flavor that I’ve grown to love.  One Negroni leaves you wanting more.

Ingredients:
1 part London dry gin
1 part Campari
1 part Italian sweet vermouth

Directions:
Pour each ingredient over ice in an old-fashioned glass and … Read more

Floradora Cocktail

post icon

Originating in the 1890s, the Floradora is a fresh cool highball cocktail that still stands tall in the 21st century. The refreshing combo of raspberries, gin, lime and a bite of ginger beer is just right on a summer’s eve. The trick with this drink is to pick a gin that is not overly junipery (yep that’s a word). We like Hendrick’s.

Ingredients:
3 parts gin
1 part fresh lime juice
Ginger beer
Fresh Raspberries… Read more

No. 3 London Dry Gin Review

post icon

A London dry gin brought to you by the oldest wine and spirit merchant in London. No. 3 refers to their address on St. James Street, the home of Berry Brothers & Rudd since 1698.

No. 3 is a clear, viscous spirit with a nose of juniper, grapefruit with a hint of orange and cardamom. On the palate, No. 3 is smooth with a nice mouth feel with flavors of juniper (but not in a … Read more

Lemon Lavender Cocktail

post icon

This light and refreshing drink is perfect for weddings, garden parties … or any time you want to toast something beautiful. My latest creation is a champagne cocktail made with limoncello, gin, a hint of lavender and, of course, champagne.

It’s a subtle cocktail that will please lots of different tastes.

If you want a more pronounced lavender flavor and aroma in the drink, after you muddle the flowers with the lemon and limoncello, leave … Read more
