The Essence of Life
Afternoon cocktails among the autumn leaves never tasted so good! The Harvest Sour by St~Germain is the perfect seasonal concoction. The combination of elderflower, cognac, and fig warms the body while you soak in all the fall feelings. Create your own using a half-ounce of St~Germain Elderflower Liqueur, one ounce of cognac, one tablespoon of fig preserves, a three-fourths ounce of lemon juice, and half an egg white. Add the fig preserves to a cocktail shaker and stir in the lemon juice and cognac. Next, add the rest of your ingredients and shake with no ice before adding ice and shaking again. Then, get ready to savor the Harvest Sour as you double-strain the cocktail into a chilled glass and garnish with fennel, pollen, and fresh fig!
