Spend A Day On The Farm at Barbuzzo

Spring has sprung, and there's no better way to celebrate the beginning of the season than with St- Germain. Made from handpicked elderflowers native to France, it makes an elegant addition whether you’re planning a romantic picnic for two or partying outdoors with friends. Its subtle flavor allows it to pair easily with complementary spirits. A classic celebratory pairing combines St-Germain with Champagne, but bartenders in Philadelphia are using it with more than just bubbly. Vodka, gin, rye, rum, tequila and bourbon all play well with St-Germain. See Eater’s map of where to find St-Germain in and out of the bottle. À votre santé!

Terrence Lewis at Barbuzzo has carved out a fantastic wine and beer program at the 13th street eatery, but it's his talents behind the stick that keep people coming back to the bar every night. The restaurant exudes a farmhouse-modernist mashup vibe, and the drinks fall in lock step with the surroundings. Lewis went classic for The French Farmer, but twisted it up in a sneakily brilliant way.

The French Farmer

1.5 oz. of St-Germain
3 oz. of Vouvray
1 oz. of club soda

Shake up the St-Germain with ice and strain into a martini glass. Add the Vouvray and a shot of club from the soda gun. Garnish with gooseberry. Enjoy.
