The Perfect Thanksgiving, Chanukah or Xmas Hostess Gift :: St. Germain Delice De Sureau

Sometimes Thanksgiving is a relaxed potluck affair, and sometimes the host/ess is a control freak who wants to do it all by herself. Either way, I have the perfect gift suggestion that will guarantee you’ll be graciously offered plenty of leftovers to take home.

I’m having a complete love affair with St-Germain, Delice De Sureau — the world’s first handcrafted, all-natural elderflower liqueur, since I discovered it at the 2007 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. It aced the competition and took home the Best In Show-Double Gold Medal!

It’s flavor is best described as a little pear with some passionfruit and maybe a hint of Meyer lemon. It’s not too sweet and makes a wonderful secret ingredient for Martinis. But my fave is the St-Germain Cocktail, equal parts of champagne and soda with a shot of St-Germain. Really wakes up those taste buds.

P.S. The gorgeous belle epoque bottle is much to pretty to throw out so let me know if you have any great recycling ideas. Maybe high styled Mateus candleholders?
