St. Germain Sparklers

St. Germain Sparklers are festive, delicious, and easy to make.

Are we there yet? I am almost afraid to say we’ve made it through yet another crazy year. Welcome, and step right up, 2022!

I don’t know about you, but this New Year’s Eve I need a drink. And I think we all deserve a really festive, really delicious, really easy one.

St. Germain Sparklers are what I’m making. Because champagne is maybe the most festive of all the drinks. And because St. Germain is just so freaking delicious. Elderflower liqueur – the St. Germain people say it comes from “ephemeral elderflowers harvested once a year.” They say the gold color of the liqueur is the result of pollen from 1,000 elderflowers in each bottle. All I know it that flowery, fruity, perfume-y, hard-to-pin-down but oh-so-lovely smell and taste has had me obsessed since St. Germain was introduced in 2007. Sometimes I just open the bottle (also beautiful) and smell it. Not kidding.

Fill a flute with a St. Germain Sparkler just before midnight tonight (or earlier, if that’s your style), and toast the New Year in a sweet, sparkly, beautiful way. And hope for the best.

Wishing everyone a happy, and most of all healthy, New Year.
