Spring has sprung, and there's no better way to celebrate the beginning of the season than with St- Germain. Made from handpicked elderflowers native to France, it makes an elegant addition whether you’re planning a romantic picnic for two or partying outdoors with friends. Its subtle flavor allows it to pair easily with complementary spirits. A classic celebratory pairing combines St-Germain with Champagne, but bartenders in Seattle are using it with more than just bubbly. Vodka, gin, rye, rum, tequila and bourbon all play well with St-Germain. À votre santé!

Rob Roy in Belltown is famous around Seattle for its terrific cocktails and classic atmosphere. This makes it a natural fit to find St-Germain. Anu Apte, co-owner of Rob Roy, says her latest St-Germain concoction is an Eyes Like Twins. Also, see Eater’s map of where to find St-Germain in and out of the bottle. And remember, it's spring time. So take a moment to stop and smell the flowers and enjoy some St-Germain.

Eyes Like Twins

1.5 oz. Gin
.5 oz. Cocchi Americano
.25 oz. St-Germain
2 dashes Orange Bitters
.15 oz. Sherry Vinegar
