It would be nice if I could have a fancy cocktail as a weekly feature, but usually by the time Friday night rolls around it’s all I can manage to crack open a can of beer.
I had one of these in Memphis (I swear I will shut up about Memphis soon) and it was so good I had to recreate it at home.
•2 oz Hendrick’s gin
•1 oz St. Germain
•1/4 oz simple syrup
•3/4 oz lemon juice
shake with ice, strain into a glass and top with champagne (or other sparkling wine)
I love it, Taylor…
… maybe not so much. Okay he says it tastes good, but boozy. BOOZY. Basically he can’t handle his liquor.
