Take A Close Look at St-Germain

stg-drink-french-500x350.jpg

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!

Zahav's creative menu is only matched by the creative drinks that are whipped up behind the bar. The Israeli-influenced cuisine of Mike Solomonov pairs so well with the aromatically-charged sips of St-Germain cocktails, and here they've offered up The Looking Glass. Be careful, though, because once you head down the rabbit hole, there's no telling what you'll find.
