Valentine’s Day is upon us and we could always use a great excuse for sultry cocktails (right?!). We’ve found the perfect cool cocktails to get you in the mood for romance like the Edinburgh Rose, a decadent mix of champagne, Hendrick’s Gin and love-ly juices. The guys will love this next one, though—Blood and Sanguinello, that mixes Glenfiddich 12 Year, Solerno, Lillet Rouge to craft the perfect cocktail for him.veroxybd.com
1 oz (25ml) Hendrick’s Gin (Note: Hendrick’s is infused with rose petals, adding another rose-centric layer to this one!)
4-6 fresh raspberries
1 oz (25ml) lychee juice
½ oz (15ml) organic raspberry
And rose cordial
Shake it all with LOVE and double strain into a flute. Top up with champagne. Garnish with a raspberry.
3 parts Glenfiddich 12 Year
3 parts Solerno
3 parts Lillet Rouge
2 parts fresh pink grapefruit juice
1 part fresh lemon juice
4 Luxardo Maresca cherries
1/2 egg white
2 dashes Regan’s orange bitters
Muddle cherries in the bottom of a mixing glass. Dry shake all ingredients in a cocktail shaker, then add ice and shake well again. Fine strain into a chilled coupe glass and garnish with a spiral of orange zest.
