St-Germain Plays TAG

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">St-Germain in and out of the bottle. À votre santé!

TAG's unique cuisine can be described as a culinary journey — global flavors married by harmony and presented with a lot of pizzazz. Located in Larimer Square, TAG seeks to deliver with the ultimate experience by hosting guests in an intimate and modern dining room. Chef and proprietor Troy Guard has made an impression with his internationally inspired dishes crafted with local ingredients. Like the kitchen menu, TAG's cocktail offerings change with the season and seek to excite the palate. Don't miss the Shisho Sexy, a TAG staple, crafted with Nolet's Gin, St-Germain, a special syrup, yuzu, shiso and prosecco.
