St-Germain global ambassador Camille Ralph Vidal has unveiled a list of 1920s-inspired cocktails as part of an immersive experience taking place in New York.

The Bacardí-owned liqueur brand will take over Battery Gardens in Downtown Manhattan for its immersive Maison St-Germain experience, which launches this month.

As part of the experience, Ralph Vidal has created a menu of cocktails inspired by the works of F Scott Fitzgerald that include a “Jazz Age flare”.

Drinks on the menu include Gloria, made from St-Germain, Suze and Champagne; Thé Rouge, which combines St-Germain with Bacardí rum, rooibos tea and lemon essential oils; and Brin Vert, a mix of gin, St-Germain, coconut water, Tío Pepe, absinthe and celery bitters.

Maison St-Germain is a 1920s-inspired installation, created in collaboration with Hollywood stylist Kate Young. The installation aims to transform any summer gathering into a “roaring affair”.

Drawing inspiration from the lavish parties that feature in F Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Beautiful and Damned, Maison St-Germain will feature a number of festive bites and small plates to accompany Ralph Vidal’s creations.

The installation will be unveiled to the public on 22 June, and a portion of the funds raised through the experience will be donated to The Battery Conservancy.

After working with the elderflower liqueur brand for more than five year’s, SB recently caught up with Ralph Vidal to find out what it takes to make it to the top.
