From the kitchen: A romantic Valentine’s cocktail

In preparation for Valentine’s Day (which is just ten short days away!) we’d like to share with you two romantic cocktail recipes which will always impress.

Grand Cosmopolitan
1 measure Grand Marnier Orange Liquor
1 measure Vodka
1 ½ measures Cranberry juice
½ measure Fresh lime juice
Few drops of Angostura Bitters

Pour all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker over plenty of ice. Do your best Tom Cruise impression, whilst shaking the ingredients together. Fine strain into a chilled Martini glass and enjoy!

La Vie En Rose
½ measure of Grand Marnier Orange Liquor
2 measures Cranberry Juice
3 measures Sparkling Wine
A few drops of Crème de Cassis or Chambord

In a chilled Champagne flute layer the ingredients starting with the Grand Marnier, follow with the Cranberry juice. Top this up with sparkling wine, we use Prosecco but Cava will work brilliantly. Blush with a few drops of Crème de Cassis to add a depth of flavour and colour.

Enjoy!
