Few years back a couple of guests came at the bar & they ordered for Bartender special cocktail. It was their 1st marriage anniversary so I made this drink & they like the cocktail. I have noticed while they were toasting the drink, they were saying santé to each other. Later I got to know about the word santé. It’s a French word which means Cheers while people are toasting before drinking. So I kept that cocktail name as santé when they asked for that drink.
