I'm due at a party in 10 minutes, but I wanted to leave you with a cocktail to ring in the new year. I first tried the Left Bank Martini at Abigail's, and I've been making it at home ever since. It's slightly floral from the elderflower liqueur, but it's not too sweet and never weak. I like it.
Keep this in your pocket for a special day in 2013, whenever that may strike.
Happy New Year!
Left Bank Martini
I like an extra splash of wine in mine.
1.5 parts gin
1 part St Germain (elderflower liqueur)
1 part Sauvignon Blanc
Shake with ice and serve in chilled glasses.
