Hit The Bottle, Ladies: The Glass Sipper (Saint Germain Spritzer)!

/ Friday, June 7, 2013

Happy Friday, all! What are you gals up to this weekend? We're staying around Brooklyn (have a few busy weekends away coming up!) and I'm really looking forward to watching the Tony Awards. I came up with a few cocktail recipes for the occasion, all inspired by nominated musicals. "The Glass Sipper" (above) was a favorite of the ladies in the test kitchen. It's really just a Saint Germain spritzer—1 bottle of wine, elderflower liqueur and soda water—so it's super refreshing and easy to make. I'd love to try this recipe with rose wine, too. Let me know if you try it out!


THE GLASS SIPPER
SERVES: 6 

Clear sanding sugar, for the rim
1 cup Saint Germain Elderflower Liqueur
1 (750-ml) bottle cold white wine
2 cups cold club soda

Dip the rims of 6 flutes in water, then press and roll in sanding sugar to coat. Stir together the Saint Germain, white wine and club soda in an chilled pitcher; divide among the prepared flutes.


Oo, you know who has some absolutely fabulous Saint Germain cocktail ideas? Leah Bergman over at Freutcake! Worth a look if you're interested in more delicious things to sip this weekend! xoxo
