St Germain

My new crush is this hand crafted delight from France, St. Germain. A Refreshing delicate tasting liqueur, made from elder flowers . It is contained in a fabulous Art Nouveau style bottle. Delicious for sipping on it’s own, I like to mix with a rosé champagne for a cocktail that’s delectably divine.

P.S. from Marie… This is soooo good! You all know that I am not a big drinker, but this is so light and really, really good. Florrie got me hooked on it. It has notes of citrus and green grape. 

 I LOVE it with muddled green grapes mixed with pink grapefruit juice and a little seltzer, though I think Florrie may disagree! She doesn’t like grapefruit… if you find some buy it and you can thank us later!

Carolina’s nippletini

If your a fan of raspberry drinks, why wouldn’t you love this?

Great drinks don't have to be fussy

Great drinks don't have to be fussy

All you’ll need is;

A bottle of Raspberry flavoured alcoholic ice tea

A bottle of Raspberry Sparkletini

A glass or two

Ice

A couple of raspberries to garnish

Who am I to tell you what proportions to mix your drink to? This is how we did it. Ice in the glass, 2 or 3 cubes, fill 35% full of sweet tea and top up  the remaining 65% with the sparkletini. Drop a couple of raspberries in on top.

With all the raspberry in this, does it  count towards your 5 a day?
