French Gimlet

St. Germain is sometimes referred to as bartenders ketchup! The reason is, this liqueur with warm floral notes is the perfect addition  to any cocktail especially in a gimlet. The French Gimlet is a cousin to a standard Gimlet but rather than adding Roses lime juice use St-Germain along with real lime juice for a bit of tartness which enhances the flavor. Once you try one of these, you may never want to go back to a standard Gimlet.
