Last week twitter exploded on the debate of New York Times’ declaration ‘The Aperol Spritz is Not a Good Drink’. While we call fake news on this, there is a time and place for the signature drink. Besides being the perfect add on to Instagram, the drink is a well balance of sweet and bitter.
For those of you who will blindly drop the Aperol Spritz or just looking for the next big drink, we recommend the St-Germain Spritz. Made with the popular elderflower liqueur that packs 1,000 delicate elderflower blossoms in every bottle – the French take on the debated orange apéritif adds a touch of sophistication to any drinking occasion. Below will tell you exactly how to make this Summer’s “It” drink.
2 parts Brut Champagne
1 ½ parts St-Germain
2 parts Sparkling Water
Method: Fill a tall Collins glass with ice. Add Champagne first, then St-Germain, then Club Soda. Stir completely and then garnish with a lemon twist.
