Obsessed: St. Germain Cocktail - Huntington Langham Tap Room


Fresh, sweet, citrusy, and delicious!

Earlier this month, John & I went to Pasadena for a quick getaway at the Huntington Langham Hotel.  We were sitting on the balcony at the Tap Room overlooking the beautiful rolling lawn.  It was so relaxing and beautiful.  John was enjoying an Old Fashioned and I was sipping a glass of Tamari, Torrontes Reserva, from Argentina, when I heard the waitress describe a St. Germain cocktail to two ladies sitting nearby.  It sounded so wonderful that the next afternoon,when we visited the bar, I told her I wanted to try one.  It was incredible - it was so crisp and refreshing that it tasted like summer in a glass!  So, we bought some St. Germain Liqueur and John made this for me tonight.







Fill a 16-ounce glass about halfway with crushed ice, then pour in:
Juice of one Lime
1 cup Sparkling White Wine, chilled
1 - 2 ounces St. Germain Liqueur

Stir, and enjoy, preferably in your garden!

    2. Oh, Susan! This was wonderful! Our prosecco was very dry, so we added a spoonful of simple syrup. I think your Lambrusco was probably a bit sweeter? These are our new go to summer drink! And probably again when our limes start coming off the tree in a few weeks! ~ David
