COCKTAILS – Velvet Flute

I was travelling through the village of St Paul de Vence in France two years ago and I stumbled upon a variety of local syrups, liqueurs and ABSINTHE! The local ‘produce’ was great and you can’t help but to indulge in it. Of course I can’t leave without some of this gems to add to my collection back i got a Poire William, Mandarine Liqueur and a Cotton Candy syrup. After two years.. I finally pop the cap of the St Paul Mandarine liqueur to have a go at it and came up with the Velvet Flute! If you’re a gin-lover, this might probably be the drink for you…
