How to make:

POUR absinthe into ice-filled old-fashioned glass, TOP with water and set aside. Separately, in mixing glass, STIR other ingredients with ice. Dump contents (absinthe and ice) of old-fashioned glass and charge with fresh ice. Then STRAIN contents (cognac, bourbon and elderflower liqueur) of mixing glass into absinthe rinsed and ice charged old-fashioned glass.

Garnish:

White grapes on stick

Comment:

Elderflower liqueur mellows and boosts floral notes in the cognac while the merest dash of absinthe dries and adds a robust hint of aniseed.

About:

Created in 2006 by yours truly (Simon Difford) at The Cabinet Room, London, England.



The name is a reference to the Parisian district of St-Germain lying on the left bank of the River Seine and also a nod to the use of absinthe and its pre-war ban in France, partly due to the belief that it induced insanity.
