The List of Love

8th January 2024

You have bought the card, chosen the flowers, ordered the chocolates, and picked out a beautiful piece of jewellery. You've prepared dinner, lit the candles, and arranged a romantic playlist. All that is left is to make the perfect cocktail that will ensure your Valentine is yours forever. Here are some of the most seductive drinks for you to choose from.

Rose Prosecco Cocktail

Nothing says “I Love You” like roses. Adding them to your Prosecco is sure to show your Valentine that you care. Pour the Prosecco into the glass and then gently drip a tablespoon of rose syrup on top. It will sink to the bottom, turning the wine a lovely shade of pink.

Strawberry Daiquiri

Strawberries are the perfect fruit for Valentine’s Day. They are red, heart shaped, and taste delicious. They are also known to be an aphrodisiac. To make the cocktail, muddle strawberries with sugar, rum, strawberry liqueur, and lime juice in a cocktail shaker. Then put the lid on top and shake to mix the juices. Pour into a cocktail glass using a strainer.

Agave Kiss

Chocolate is another food connected with love, and this cocktail is guaranteed to melt your partner’s heart. It is very creamy, so perfect for a dessert. Add ice to a cocktail shaker and then pour over silver Tequila, crème de cacao, double cream, and Chambord. Shake well. Use chocolate flakes to rim a chilled glass and then empty the shaker into it. Garnish with fresh raspberries for ultimate decadence.

Axis Kiss

Champagne has been the ultimate celebratory drink for years, but it can be a little dry. Show your love that you care by sweetening it up a little. The Axis Kiss can be made as sweet as you like by adding more or less Amaretto and crème de cassis to a champagne glass and then topping up with some bubbles. Like a Kir Royale, but better.

Scotch and Schnapps Sweetheart

This drink takes a lot of love and a little effort to prepare. Add ice to a cocktail shaker and pour over your choice of Scotch whisky, peach schnapps, mango purée, milk, and an egg white. Shake to mix the flavours and then pour into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a slice of mango. The sweet flavour and unusual milky taste are sure to impress your date.

Bartender's top tip

Just like cooking, consider using seasonal ingredients to make your cocktails. Fresh summer fruits, herbs, and edible flowers can add a fresh twist to your drinks, while autumn and winter call for ingredients like apple cider, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Seasonal ingredients are not only at their peak of flavor but also can inspire you to create themed drinks that fit the time of year.
