St. Germain Cocktail Party

The perfect garden party setting, a great group of friends, a gourmet spread, topped off with a sampling of St. Germain cocktails made for a delicious summer night this past Wednesday.

Emily was our wonderful hostess, and her back yard could not have been a more perfect place for a St. Germain-themed, elegant party.

St. Germain kindly provided some of their signature drink carafes as well as information about St. Germain and some fun postcards to add to the festivities.

St. Germain

Here’s a little bit of information about St. Germain from the St. Germain website:

Fine artisanal French liqueur

All natural, made from 100% fresh, handpicked elderflowers

Subtle yet complex flavor

Low sugar content, roughly half that of other liqueurs

Easily pairs with a variety of spirits in many cocktails

Elegant French-inspired bottle to adorn your back bar

St. Germain

The task at hand was for each of us to create a cocktail with St. Germain, and to bring it along with some delicious nibbles for everyone to share. Emily’s palate pleasing elixir included peach puree and white wine.

Megan made a festive and summery St. Germain sangria.

Not pictured were Amy’s bubbles and St. Germain, Bianca’s St. Germain and limoncello cocktail, Daisy’s white wine, gin, and St. Germain mix,  Elizabeth’s gingery peach non-alcoholic refresher, and my own lemony basil concoction.

Of course, when you get a bunch of food bloggers together, there is good food as well. We did not go hungry, feasting on all sorts of cheeses, olives, Elizabeth’s savory crepes, St. Germain tea cakes, cookie dough balls, and more.

There were tiny lemon tarts.

And parmesan crisps with heirloom tomato topping.

As well as baguette slices with blueberry goat cheese.

We ate, we sipped cocktails, chatted, and kicked back to some great music in what was a totally relaxing, laid back, and fun evening. My head is absolutely spinning with work, so I needed it!

      Hi Melissa – I bought the blueberry/vanilla goat cheese at Trader Joe’s and drizzled a little honey on top. Super easy!

      What a fun evening! The Back Bay Social Club makes a gin cucumber drink with St Germain and it is my favorite! Very refreshing.
