Single Brothers: The Parker Posey

The only possible way Single Brothers could have gotten any cooler in my book would be to add a drink named after my favorite wacky indie-actress, Parker Posey.
Well, they did it. Single Brothers rolled out a new drink menu a couple of weeks ago and we went Friday night to check it out. The Parker Posey is a champagne based cocktail with elderflower liqueur, cava (Spanish sparkling wine), and lemon. The elderflower liqueur had a very..well, floral taste to it. The French St-Germain is one brand of elderflower liqueur you might have heard of. Their website describes the taste as:
"Neither passionfruit nor pear, grapefruit nor lemon, the sublime taste of St-Germain hints at each of these and yet none of them exactly. It is a flavor as subtle and delicate as it is captivating. A little like asking a hummingbird to describe the flavor of its favorite nectar. Très curieux indeed, n'est-ce pas?" http://www.stgermain.fr/story.php

Now, I don't think Single Brothers uses St-Germain, but that's okay, this quote describes the subtleties of the taste pretty darn well. Kind of like Parker Posey... she hints at different "flavors" and is yet none of them exactly, a flavor as subtle and delicate as it is captivating! Like Parker Posey, this drink is also very pretty and yet slightly bizarre with a twist of elegance. 
If fancy drinks aren't your thing, you can always get a good ol' can of Schlitz for $2! 


  1. She's lovingly referred to as "the Queen of the Indies". She's been in a lot of Christopher Guest movies like Waiting for Guffman, Best in Show, A Mighty Wind, and Thanks for Your Consideration...

  2. ooo also Dazed and Confused (though not a Christopher Guess movie)
