Christine (aka "Bean") is one of my dearest friends and anytime she visits, we have a yummy-bad-for-you treat.  I'll spare you the details on our most favorite- quickest disappearing yummy-bad-for-you treat (it involves Lipton onion soup mix and a bag of Ruffles...)  ... mmmmm..lost in salty heaven...

Anyway, the last time she came to visit she did the coolest thing for us! We had a cheese tasting party!  Ok. I'm all over the place with treats and Bean. So, I digress..  During this last visit, in between cheese nibbles,  Bean introduced me to the St Germain Grapefruit Fizz which I absolutely loved because, ST GERMAIN!  It's so refreshing and certainly NOT a guilty pleasure.  

Easiest Summer Sip of all,  thanks to Christine Bean and St. Germain! Here's what you need.

Equal parts :

  • St. Germain Liqueur
  • Gin
  • Grapefruit Juice (fresh squeezed)
  • soda water

The fizz is optional but who could resist a few bubbles?

Add all the ingredients into the shaker with ice cubes and shake, shake it!

Pour over more ice in a glass and enjoy fresh, flowery, Frenchness!

It's too fresh not to shoot with flowers!

Enjoy, Measure xoxox and.... Bean!
