Valentine’s Day is known for intimate candlelit Dinners and Chocolate & Whipped Cream Desserts, but what about a sweet pink cocktail? Maybe a raspberry infused spritzer? How abut a luscious gin sour with bright flower blossoms? Read on as I share a few of my favorite cocktails from my foodie friends, as well as one of my all time special gin drinks, in this featured post, The Best Collection of Valentine’s Day Cocktails – at Home!
I was so inspired by this collection of cocktail recipes for the home-mixologist, I just had to include one of my own! Citrusy, floral, with a sensual foam topper, my Lemon Flora (Gin Sour) is a beautiful example of a classic cocktail modernized for current tastes.
The herbaceous notes from the gin & elderflower liqueur are practically a Garden of Eden for the senses! Made with the traditional ‘cocktail sour’ foam technique, with loads of fresh lemon & orange juices. I know you’re saying to yourself, “isn’t that foam an egg white?!”. Yes. And trust me… you need this drink. If you’ve had a cocktail with real foam before, you already know it’s perfectly safe and delicious, when you’re using fresh eggs! Do NOT miss out on the dreamy foamy topping that glides above this sexy cocktail!
