Saint Revivers

When I first tasted St. Germain I wasn’t confident that we’d be able to mix it well. Too floral. Too tropical. Too different. But, very, very delicious; Emily’s been sneaking it neat. However, I read that it should work well in place of Cointreau. In comes the Corpse Reviver Variation #2, a fabulous drink featuring my many of my favorite spirits: Gin, Cointreau, Lillet Blanc, and Pastis… Especially the Pastis.

Saint Reviver #1

  • 3/4 oz Junipero Gin
  • 3/4 oz Saint Germain
  • 3/4 oz Lillet Blanc
  • 3/4 oz lemon juice
  • splash of Herbsaint

The first attempt was promising and exotic, the blend of flavors and smells coming together as something familiar but unnamed, lychee or star fruit, but not well balanced. The St. Germain featured prominently but the lemon juice was overpowering and muted every thing else. My second pass with the St. Geramin was a Leo Special Cocktail with the cointreau swapped out for our feature again. Even better but I had to come back to the Saint Reviver.

Saint Reviver #2

  • 1 oz Junipero Gin
  • 1 oz Saint Germain
  • 1/2 oz Lillet Blanc
  • 1/2 oz Herbsaint
  • 1/2 oz lime juice

I’m at a loss for words. It’s wonderful. Hard to believe that only a few months ago that if you said Gin, I’d think Tonic. Cheers!
