Jane, do you buy the St. Germaine here in El Paso? Also what is the cocktail called that uses it with gin? Sounds perfect for my Valentine!

Yes you can get it here at Western Beverage and also out at the package store by Billy Crews. The cocktail is kind of like a tom collins and this is a rough estimate of how you make it:

2 parts gin
1 part St Germaine
1/2 part fresh lemon juice
1 part club soda

Fill a collins glass to the rim with large ice cubes, add gin, St Germain and lemon juice and stir well. Add soda last and stir again. It should be slightly sweet but very refreshing, so add more club soda if it's too strong. You can also rim the glass with sugar.

I just wish I could find some Plum Schnapps. Not any of the other flavors, PLUM. I had a blast in Germany with a couple who owned a Gasthaus and served me Plum Schnapps. That was some good stuff.

Holy jeez! You must have really had a blast in that 3way deal. I just love the whole free-wheeling, free-swinging attitude that they have over there.
