Serge's Morning Girl
The Libertine (7927 Forsyth Boulevard; 314-862-2999)
Serge's Morning Girl is named after French music icon Serge Gainesbourg and his "way with the ladies." The cocktail is a "super-bright" aperitif made with Sauvignon blanc, citrus juice, Aperol and a dash of pickling liquid from green strawberries -- found elsewhere on the Libertine's menu -- for a hint of sweetness.

The Margarita Tamarindo combines blanco tequila, Gran Gala (Italian orange liqueur), fresh lemon and tamarind and is served with a Tajin (chile-salt) rim. It was discovered in a small town near the Tequila region of Jalisco, Mexico, called Tlaquepaque, occupied mostly by artists and musicians, most notably its Mariachis.
