Jamie at Porter's in Bellport helps us work our way through the St. Germain playbook

Jamie at Porter's on the Lane in Bellport is one of our favorite bartenders since she is always game for any ridiculous/obscure cocktail we throw at her.  While transitioning into summer we found a cocktail book from St. Germain liqueurs which had a lot of great cocktails for summer and Jamie was game enough to help us try out some of the possibilities like the Elderfashion which consists of Gin, St. Germain and Orange Bitters.  So far our favorite is the Left Bank Martini which is Gin, St Germain and Sauvignon Blanc which is a great summer drink that manages to refresh and clear your head on a hot summer afternoon.  There are about 20 cocktails in the slim volume so we naturally look forward to trying the rest like the Paris Manhattan (Bourbon, St. Germain, Dry Vermouth and Bitters) and the Montparnasse (Calvados, St. Germain, Sauvignon Blanc).  Lucky for us Jamie is up for the challenge...
