Vive l’Apéritif : ST-GERMAIN stages summer cocktail terrace takeover across the capital

St-Germain cocktail cart waits for customers outside The Londoner hotel

Award-winning French elderflower liqueur ST-GERMAIN has partnered with McQueens Flowers, for a terrace take-over across London, which runs until August 1. The al fresco hotspots list a new entry in what has become a seasonal perennial, Whitcomb at The Londoner, in London’s Leicester Square.

Other pop-ups where you can enjoy a classic cocktail against an Instagrammable-worthy backdrop include the Market Halls (in Victoria, Canary Wharf and Oxford Street), the Marriott (Park Lane) and the Old Compton Brasserie (Soho).

A cooling ST-GERMAIN Spritz, which combines ST-GERMAIN with sparkling wine, sparkling water and a twist of lemon over ice, strikes us as a blooming lovely idea.
