St. Germain Cocktail

I thought I'd quickly make mention of Thierry Henry's debut for the New York Red Bulls last night, against Tottenham Hotspur, from across the pond.  As my friend Warren pointed out to me, Henry took the PATH train from Manhattan to the game with his friends and a litany of fans attending the game.

Henry has always been one of my favorite players.  He is smooth as silk on the field, and seems genuinely likable off the field.  Taking the train to the stadium, as opposed to a car service (which no doubt would have been provided, and he could no doubt afford), is so "man of the people" and so significant in a country whose soccer fans are waiting for a reason to care about the MLS.  He may be the reason.

Screw LeBron - New York needed Henry to bring NYC back to sporting prominance.  It's fitting then, in honor of the Frenchman Thierry Henry, that today we drink the St. Germain Cocktail, a cocktail that primarily uses two French ingredients: St. Germain of course, and champagne.

St. Germain Cocktail (available at the St. Germain website, available here)

2 parts Brut Champagne or Dry Sparkling Wine
1 1/2 parts St. Germain
2 parts
Sparkling Water or Club Soda

Method: Fill a tall Collins glass with ice. Add Champagne first, then St-Germain, then Club Soda. Stir completely.  Garnish with a lemon twist, making sure to squeeze essential oils into the glass.

The St. Germain Cocktail is another excellent summer classic.  The cocktail is sweet, but the brut champagne really evens the sweetness out.  If you used an Asti sparkling wine, by comparison, the drink would be all sweetness, with no dry qualities to balance the other flavors.

And ladies love the St. Germain Cocktail. 

The next time you're making cocktails for your wife, girlfriend, or any other woman in your life - make this, and they'll love you for it.  Science has proven that the St. Germain Cocktail is a winner with women (I'm so excited, I'm using alliteration, and it's not even 10am)!  Further, if you're trying to prove your mettle on a first date, or even a 10th date, the St. Germain Cocktail will impress.

If anyone does employ my above advice, please let me know.  The Amateur Mixologist is first here to make drinks, of course, but the second reason for our presence is to facilitate relationships.  I kid, I kid!  But seriously, how awesome would it be if someone marries as a direct result of having made the St. Germain Cocktail, first seen on The Amateur Mixologist?  Stranger things have happened!

Have an excellent weekend friends, see you on Monday!  A votre santé!

Green coffee extract clearly works well for handling old fats.
It is not proven true that caffeine is associated with low bone mass.

You actually make it appear really easy along with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I believe I'd by
no means understand. It sort of feels too complicated and extremely wide for me.
I'm taking a look ahead on your subsequent submit, I'll try
to get the hang of it!
