It’s time to celebrate…love, lust, longing…whatever it is you’re feeling this Valentines day time to do it with a drink in hand. And what better way to celebrate (and get completely inebriated) than with a good old mix of prosecco and gin. A great combination at the best of times, but now with a little bit more pink thrown in there for good measure on Valentine’s Day.
This cocktail uses the incredibly fun Strawberry Bon Bon gin from the Valentine’s mini pouch Box. It’s a strawberry and toffee gin that brings you back to those days waiting in line at the sweet shop after school for a delectably delicious bag of goodies. As you can imagine it’s a fairly sweet gin, which many of you lemonade lovers will just go wild for! But if you would prefer to balance it out a little more, mint is a great way to cut through the sweet and create a very refreshing drink!
And that’s what I am going to be doing tonight. Mixing strawberry and mint flavours with some bubbles to give it a real feel of celebration. Because why shouldn’t we be celebrating love? Even if you’re drinking alone, it’s still important to raise a glass to that soppy feeling that has brought us all together this past year and shown us what’s important. So here’s to love…whether it be self-love, loving your partner, your parents or even your dog, we all need a little more love in our lives.
So let’s get drinking, as they say in Spain:
