Honestly, once you have a St. Rita, you will not be satisfied with a regular margarita again. Well… I mean, I don’t know… maybe you will… I can’t tell you, and everyone has a different taste. My parents first introduced me to this cocktail in 2008 and that’s around when everyone else was first discovering it. St. Germain was launched in 2007, and as a way to market it, the company created variations of classic cocktails using its liqueur. It’s not vintage, but it’s damn good.
