St Germain

My doctor's appointment for this morning was canceled, so I went to the liquor store instead. Actually I went to two liquor stores, as the first did not have what I was looking for: St Germain's elderflower liqueur.

On Saturday I had a drink called a gin blossom, which consisted of St Germain's, Hendrick's gin and Sprite. I was skeptical since I am not a fan of soda, but I felt like trying something new. Am I ever glad I did: it was incredible. Determined to reproduce this drink at home, I went this morning on a search for St Germain's. Liquor stores are generally not in abundance where I live, but thankfully I happen to live within 5 minutes of two, and the second I visited had the liqueur.

I don't have any Sprite, but I'm going to try it tonight with tonic (my usual mixer) instead. If that isn't as phenomenal, I guess I'll have to start making an exception to my usual "no soda" rule. Currently I'm practicing my thesis talk and trying to avoid the "it's five o'clock somewhere!" mentality.
