If the Beatles were right that all you need is love, love is all you need and if Cole Porter had it on the money electric eels I might add do it (though it shocks ’em I know.) So let’s do it — let’s make a cocktail. Ahhh cocktails, just another reason I love this holiday and never will never understand Valentine’s Day haters. How can anyone hate a holiday that encourages chocolate and general candy eating? Come on people, it gives us an excuse to crack open a bottle of anything and eat expensive cheese on a Thursday!
This lovely cocktail has a hint of rose water and elderflower along with the sweet, dry taste of pink grapefruit and gin. Even those who do not care for gin, will fall in love perchance, and after two of these numbers — it will be romance (or a very early night, one of the two).
- 3/4 cup of pink grapefruit juice or the juice of one freshly squeezed pink grapefruit
- 2 shots (3 oz.) of gin
- 1 shot (1.5 oz.) of St. Germain liquor
- 1 capful of rose water
- 1 capful of grenadine syrup
So cupids, draw back your bows and let those creative cocktail names flow.
