St. Germain & Cassis Gin and Soda
Serves: 2 cocktails
A fizzy, blush-hued gin cocktail with floral St. Germain and rich cassis.
  • 3 ounces gin
  • 2 ounces St. Germain (elderflower liqueur)
  • ½ ounce creme de cassis (currant liqueur)
  • 1 ounce simple syrup
  • 1 lemon wedge (1/4 of a lemon)
  • soda water
  • 4 dashes aromatic bitters
  1. Fill 2 glasses with ice.
  2. Stir the gin, St. Germain, cassis, and simple syrup together in a cup. Stir in the juice of the lemon. Pour the mixture into the 2 ice-filled glasses. Top with soda, stir in a few dashes of bitters per drink.
Simple syrup is just a 1:1 ratio of water and sugar. Just heat the 2 ingredients in a saucepan to dissolve the sugar, bring to a boil, and remove from the heat. Pour the syrup into a heatproof jar and cool to room temperature. Fit with a lid and store in the refrigerator for a week or more.
