Happy Monday, everyone!
Today’s drink was inspired by one of our favorite liqueurs: St. Germain! We started there and built up a drink influenced by France and New Orleans — so you know it has to be delicious!
Come inside to check out The Louisiana Purchase!
Now, don’t let the color of this drink deceive you — the only things going in this puppy are liquor-based, so it packs quite a punch! A very, very delicious punch.
For The Louisiana Purchase, you will need:
- 2 oz Stoli Vanil
- 1/2 oz St. Germain
- 1/4 oz Grand Marnier
- 2 dashes Peychaud’s bitters
Gather your ingredients, plus your jiggers, cocktail shaker, and martini glass.
First, fill your martini glass with ice to chill, set it aside.
Place your 2 dashes of Peychaud’s directly into the bottom of your glass.
Follow that up with your 2 oz of Stoli Vanil.
Add in your 1/4 oz Grand Marnier.
And finish it off with 1/2 oz St. Germain.
Fill your cocktail shaker 2/3 full of ice, pour your ingredients over, and shake for 30-60 seconds.
Take the ice out of your martini glass, and strain that deliciousness in there!
And there you have it, New Orleans meets Paris! A delicious, slightly sweet, but very stiff drink for your Monday evening needs.
Enjoy it, everyone!
