Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate love — whether that love is for a person, a place, or for your life as a whole. To help get you in the celebrating mindset, we’ve partnered with our friends at Terrain to give you two delicious recipes for Valentine’s Day spritzers. I took a trip out to their beautiful store last week , and their drink-making expert Susan whipped these right up!
First up, RoseBerry Fizz.
1 teaspoon sugar
1 ounce Raspberry & Rose Cordial
6-8 ounces champagne, prosecco, or dry sparkling white wine
Culinary rose petals for garnish
1. Muddle raspberries and sugar in a glass. Muddling with sugar helps the raspberries to better release their flavors.
Sprinkle some culinary rose petals on top, and pop in a floral straw with a raspberry on top for a homemade stirrer!
Next up, Rosey Elderflower Pucker.
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2-3 drops red food coloring
1-2 ounces Limoncello
6 ounces Elderflower & Rose Presse
3 ice cubes
1. To make pink rimming sugar, add red food coloring into sugar and mix to desired color. Add the zest of one lemon, and mix well. This will be enough sugar for multiple glasses.
3. Fill the glass with ice, then add Limoncello. Top with Elderflower & Rose Presse.
4. Garnish with a thin slice of lemon and floral straw.
There you have it! Susan let me try her creations, I fell in love with them both! I must say, though, the rosey elderflower pucker was my favorite. Happy week of love, my dears!
