St-Germain, the famous French liqueur made from elderflower, adds elegance to any party, especially with a cocktail named L'Elégance. Crush 3 fresh raspberries in a shaker, add 30ml of the liqueur and shake. Pour in a champagne coupe, add a dash of your favourite champagne, and voila, L'Elégance is served!










Another refreshing cocktail made with St-Germain to wow your guests is the Bramble Red Basil Smash. In a shaker add 6 or 8 leaves of red basil, 10ml simple syrup, 20ml fresh lemon juice, 10ml St-Germain liqueur and 40ml Bombay Bramble gin. Shake well, strain and pour over ice in an old fashioned glass.









Everyone's favourite French vodka, Grey Goose, is adding a kick to the classic, and innocent, summer favourite beverage, the iced tea. In a shaker muddle fresh mint leaves and 5ml simple syrup, add 30ml Grey Goose L'Orange, 60ml iced tea and ice, and shake. Poor in a tall glass, garnish with mint leaves and cool down with your Summer Tea, a refreshing, and naughty, version of the humble iced tea.








An Old Fashioned cocktail is always in style, especially with a French twist. Here's how French orange-flavoured liqueur Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge adds a je ne sais quoi to the classic drink, creating Le Grand Old Fashioned. In an old fashioned glass add 3 drops of Angostura bitters, 30ml Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge then 30ml of your bourbon of choice. Top with ice and stir before garnishing with an orange twist.
