For those of you who don't know (and are not Parks and Rec fans - you are missing out btw), Galentine's Day is celebrated the day before Valentine's Day and it is a day to celebrate those special girlfriends in your life. I wanted to have a special drink for this year's Galentine's and this is what I came up with. I love this cocktail because it's delicious and so easy to make, and do you see how pretty it is? It's so pretty. And it smells amazing.
What you will need:
- St. Germain
- Sparkling Rosé
- Blood Orange
- Sage (for garnish)
- Lavender (for garnish)
- Add 1 oz. of St. Germain to glass
- Top off with chilled sparkling rosé (around 4 oz. depending on glass)
- Add squeezed blood orange juice
- Garnish with trimmed fresh sage and fresh or dried lavender
St. Germain is a really tasty elderflower liqueur, that has a very sweet and floral taste. It reminds me of lychee, if you are familiar with that flavor. The blood orange adds a nice citrus kick and also enhances the color of the cocktail, and I love having the sage and lavender as a garnish to add an olfactory experience to the drink (so fancy, I know).
This is one of my favorite ways to drink St. Germain, and I can't wait to share it with my girlfriends this year. Hope you try it out!
