Saint Florent

Drink: Saint Florent

The Saint Florent is something like a fancy cross between an Aperol Spritz and a French 75. It’s a little sweet, a little bitter, and fairly potent thanks to the gin. Between its flavor and beautiful orange hue, this cocktail will surely impress at your next dinner party.

  • 1.5 oz fresh lime juice
  • 1 oz Aperol
