Another Valentine’s Day approaches us and this year more than any other year I have heard “Galentine’s Day” a lot and I love it! To me and my friends Valentine’s Day has become a more cheesy and throw in your face “that you are single kinda holiday” and while relationships are great and happy for all the lovers. It is also a time to celebrate love in all forms and make sure that we remember that having a significant other doesn’t and shouldn’t define anyone. With that being said I wanted to make a cocktail that could be for both the romantic lovers but also for the gals who just want to Kiki and sip something pretty. Behold the cocktail for both. Fresh, floral, citrusy, bubbly and light the Spritz From A Rose is the perfect drink to cheers to whatever this holiday means to you! Enjoy Lovers!
- 3/4 oz. Lemon Juice
- 1/2 oz. Blood Orange Juice
- 3/4 oz. Simple Syrup
- Scant Bar Spoon Measurement of Rose Water
- 2-2 1/2 oz. Dry Prosecco
Measure and pour all ingredients listed besides the prosecco into a shaker tin. Add ice and shake ingredients for around 3-5 seconds. Next have a glass with a stem prepped with some ice cubes. Add the prosecco to the cocktail in the shaker tin and then grab your Hawthorne and fine strainer and pour out into the glass with ice. Garnish festively and serve!
A little background on my preferred spirits and inclusions :
Prosecco: Any dry sparking wine. I used Cecilia Beretta Prosecco from Trader Joe’s.
