At a recent spirits exhibition, I got a peek at a new French liqueur launching soon in the U.S. called Esprit de June. It is similar to St-Germain’s Elderflower liqueur, but instead of being infused with elderflowers, this liqueur is made from grape blossoms. The result is tropical and floral, but not cloying in any way. It will be good in spring and summer cocktails.
Esprit de June, showing up on shelves any day, around $30-40
