    just some food for thought, but the original st germain cocktail didn't even include st germain. Although interestingly enough the flavor profile of the cocktail sings the same notes as the liquer.

    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.

    Uncle ! I give !
    I can't imagine making this properly with your recipe.
    Wine, St-Germaine and Club Soda. Over ice with a lemon twist
    So how is this both "Simple" and "Gin based"?

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