Feel Good Friday: Fleuriste St~Germain Signature Creative Cocktails

Last night, New York City and St~Germain Elderflower Liqueur celebrated Fleuriste St~Germain, an enchanting flower shop that sought to recreate the ethos of original French salons and spark reconnection and creativity through inspired conversations, special performances, beautiful bouquets, and creative cocktails—created in collaboration with Oscar De La Renta/ MONSE Fashion Designer Laura Kim and American Ballet Theater Dancer James Whiteside.

The flower shop-cum-craft cocktail bar pop-up in the heart of SoHo buzzed as the industry stars from fashion and the performing arts mingled and admired the ambiance and festivities throughout the night (in accordance with state COVID-19 safety guidelines), toasting to the city’s cultural spirit and top talents with cocktails by St~Germain inspired by Laura and Jamesthe ‘Rose Spritz’, ‘The Ballerino’ and ‘The Fleurita’.
