Peach Berry Burst Recipe with St. Germain


As you know, I have a special place in my heart for any adult beverage that contains St. Germain.  To my happiness, I found this recipe in the In-Style July issue as I was sunning myself at my husband’s family reunion in PA.  I wanted to make it immediately but had to wait until we got back home.  After we arrived back in NC, much to my disappointment I didn't see St. Germain at the nearby ABC store. A few tries later, I found and dusted off their last bottle, and got right to making this delicious drink.

St. Germain is one of those liquors that just can’t be replaced with anything less expensive.  It has this one of a kind flavor that explains the reason it costs so much.  I love it, but my wallet doesn’t.  I do promise you that once you have tasted it, you will always want to have it on stock in your liquor cabinet.

Peach Berry Burst
Adapted from In-Style Magazine

3 strawberries, hulled plus one for garnish
3 slices of fresh peaches
½ teaspoon agave nectar
2 oz. gin
juice of 1/2 lime
juice of 1/2 lemon
1oz of St. germain
soda water

1. Muddle strawberries and peach slices plus lemon juice, lime juice,  and agave nectar at the bottom of a tin.

2. Add in gin, St. Germain liqueur, and ice to the tin.

3. Shake vigorously.

4. Strain into an iced highball glass.

5. Top with soda water.

6. Garnish with a strawberry and a slice of peach.

This recipe originally had you make a puree of strawberry with sugar and water.  It did not call for peaches, but I had some in my fridge I needed to use before a trip.  I choose to muddle it and then strain it at the end.  If you are up for chewing your drink, then don’t strain it and put the chunks into the glass without all the extra ice. I ended up doing that after taking pictures and it was delicious.
