I was reading the magazine Edible Santa Barbara the other day and I came across the best two-page advertisement I’ve ever seen. It was for St-Germain and inside the magazine they provided card stock tear-outs of vintage postcards with a cocktail recipe on the back, three AMAZING St-Germain summer drink recipes and a guide to Artistic Expression… aka drink making tips! The idea and design behind this brand is well thought out and very detailed, they must have some creative geniuses working for them! Because I am already a fan of St-Germain, I had to try their recipes and share them with all of you! The Sangria was SOOO GOOD and refreshing and the St-Rita was strong and not too sweet, a perfect version of the margarita! Read below for the recipes and you can also head over to their Facebook page for some more delicious drink recipes!

Sangria Flora 
1 Bottle Sauvignon Blanc or Dry White Wine
1 Cup St-Germain
2 Fresh Peaches, sliced
5-6 Fresh Strawberries, sliced
6 Fresh Raspberries (I added more because the look so pretty!)
1 Bunch Fresh Grapes

 

Directions:
1. Stir all of the ingredients together in a pitcher
2. Let them soak for at least 15 minutes or longer if you want a fruitier taste
3. Fill wine glasses with ice and pour in the sangria, Yum!

St-Rita

2 Parts Tequila
1 Part St-Germain
3/4 Part Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice ( They say 3-4 wedges, I thought it needed more so I squeezed a whole lime)
I also added a small amount of agave or you can use sugar to sweeten it just a tad bit more ; )


Directions:
1. Shake all of the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice
2. Salt the rim of the glass
3. Pour the St-Rita into the salted glass. I didn’t strain it, I just added the ice I used to shake it with and it turned out lovely!

    Made both drinks for a “girls night” party and everyone liked the sangria. It was so refreshing and gorgeous in the glass. The tequila drinking folks liked the margarita. I will definitely be making both of these again! Thanks for sharing it.

    Where oh where did you find the cocktail jigger!? I’ve been scouring second-hand stores, as well as upscale kitchen/barware stores looking for something similar, and forever come back empty handed 😡

    Love the drink ideas, by the way. I just picked up a new bottle of St G and now I know how I’m going to enjoy it!

    For the St.-Rita, try using Elderflower syrup rather than agave or sugar. It’s PERFECT!!!! Make it a sparkling drink by adding a bit of San Pellegrino lime. HEAVEN.
