DharMag May 2017 Cocktail Scheherazade: your new aperitif with Prosecco, St. Germain and cider

Shahrazād cocktail with Prosecco, St. Germain cider and blueberries The Scheherazade cocktail is a slap in the face, a scratching and cheeky aperitif, all played on sharp tones, pungent enlightened by the gorgeous perfume of the elder-flower.

Elderflower that we find in the famous St. Germain liqueur, a small supernova of taste, ready to explode as soon as it caresses the palate.

We have to admit that we have been inspired by Pasolini’s film rather than the lovely fairy tales, so also the cocktail comes out a bit twisted and interrupted…

The Scheherazade cocktail is very simple, it is a sparkling drink build directly into the glass and does not require particular skills.

The only ingredient to prepare in advance are the blueberries, which should be soaked in St. Germain and then frozen.
