a tale of a few cities

Choc ! ! Horreur ! !

Posted in elixir by petercombe on August 30, 2009


It has been a second day of breeze-less  heat in the city and I found myself salivating for an ice cold St-Germain Cocktail. I picked up a small single serving bottle of Cava since we’re on a bit of a budget and popped it in the fridge as soon as I got home. When it came time to making it I peeled a strip of skin from a lemon, plopped it in a glass with ice, poured some St-Germain Liquor and proceeded to tear the foil from the top of the mini-bootle of Codorníu. It was then that I gasped – what in the hell is this? 


A sickly colored plastic twist cork

It put a bit of a damper on the whole St-Germain experience.
