Whether hosting friends and family, or heading out for games of pétanque, stocking up on French spirits is a must! Adding classics like D’USSE Cognac, St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur, and Grey Goose Vodka to your cocktail line-up, will elevate the mood & menu, and help you celebrate the French way. 

For an eye-catching centerpiece, consider pre-batching a D’USSE Fleur de Vie for a floral-forward cocktail bringing together sweet notes of elderflower, richness from cognac, and a splash of fresh champagne bubbles. To satisfy those whose taste buds favor something sweet, St-Germain’s Parisian Daiquiri is a perfect French twist on a classic cocktail.
