  1. This is one of my favorite cocktails and never disappoints when I serve for guests.

  2. Steve Whiting says

    Uncle ! I give !

    Wine, St-Germaine and Club Soda. Over ice with a lemon twist

    • Sorry, that gin tag was a mistake. We’ve corrected that. (This drink does not contain gin.) But it is definitely simple to prepare: Three easy-to-find ingredients combined directly in the glass. You can leave out the lemon twist if you don’t have any lemons.
