Adapted from a recipe by Curtis Cheney, Del Frisco’s, Fort Worth, TX.
1/2 lime, quartered
3 to 5 mint leaves
60 ml (2 oz) St. Germain
120 ml (4 oz) champagne
Squeeze lime pieces into an ice-filled shaker. Add mint and St. Germain. Hard-shake for 7 seconds until the mint has been broken up into very small pieces. Pour into chilled cocktail glass at the same time as you add champagne.
gaz sez: How very simple, and how very elegant, too. This drink comes together beautifully.
