Joyeux Quatorze Juillet!

Happy Bastille Day!  

Thank god for the Age of Enlightenment.  Its hard to fathom a world without liberty, equality, and brotherhood.  The French call it "Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité!"  Ideas like these led to revolutions.  Including, but not limited to, the American Revolution followed by the French Revolution.

I've elected to post the French 77 in honor of Bastille Day.

French 77

- 1 3/4 oz of St. Germaine Elderflower Liqueur
- 1/2 oz of fresh squeezed lemon juice
- champagne
- 1 lemon

Glassware: Champagne glass

Pour St. Germaine and fresh squeezed lemon juice into the glass.  Fill the rest of the glass with champagne.  Garnish with lemon rind.  Enjoy.
