Travel Through Time At Duo


Spring has sprung, and there's no better way to celebrate the beginning of the season than with St-Germain. Made from handpicked elderflowers native to France, it makes an elegant addition whether you’re planning a romantic picnic for two or partying outdoors with friends. Its subtle flavor allows it to pair easily with complementary spirits. A classic celebratory pairing combines St-Germain with Champagne, but bartenders in Denver are using it with more than just bubbly. Vodka, gin, rye, rum, tequila and bourbon all play well with St-Germain. See Eater’s map of where to find St-Germain in and out of the bottle. À votre santé!

Duo is a hidden treasure in the Highlands, which is one of the city's most thriving culinary neighborhoods. It's a neighborhood restaurant where atmosphere and attention to detail are totally in tune. Experience Duo's relaxed and unassuming environment while lingering over a glass of wine or experiencing chef John Broening's farm-to-table cuisine. The desserts created by Yasmin Lozada-Hissom, a James Beard Foundation Best Pastry Chef nominee, are absolutely decadent, and the cocktails are certainly worth a trip on their own. Make sure to try the Dutch 1575, which features gin, St-Germain and savory pomegranate molasses.
