What Ingredients are Needed for the Love Potion?
- Brockman’s Gin
- Rose Cordial
- Lemon Juice
- Egg White
All of these are perfectly valid options! For us, we don’t celebrate. Like, at all. I only participate reluctantly because my kiddos are in school and they like the do the Valentine‘s cards, because candy. Otherwise, we wouldn’t do anything.
I know I have talked about this in previous posts, but Jay actually proposed the day before Valentine’s Day on Friday the 13th. Still makes me giggle 15 years later!
But, the one thing I won’t turn down is a themed cocktail. Because cocktails. The pinks and reds of Valentine’s Day are great opportunities to make a really stunning drink. I mean, we are always looking for a reason to make a festive drink, and we are all about a pretty Valentine cocktail.
This cocktail is obviously perfect for Valentine’s Day, with the pink color, but really it could be for all sorts of occasions! Thank of girls night, Mother’s Day, or any fun Spring get together coming up!
This one is a twist on a Clover Club cocktail. We added some rose cordial to it, and boy does it make it perfect for Valentine‘s Day. The Clover Club is a classic, with a rich, silky texture and a complexity that is perfectly balanced.
So whether you are celebrating or not, we think you absolutely need to have this Valentine cocktail. Or not a Valentine cocktail, call it whatever you want! Make this pink drink asap, not just for upcoming holidays, but for anytime you just want to be classy AF!
NOTE: drinking dry ice is not safe! We used it for effect in this cocktail. If you add it to a drink, make sure it is completely dissolved before drinking the cocktail. This may mean waiting several minutes for it to do so. It is a safer option to use a larger chunk of dry ice in a bowl with warm water to give the effect of the dry ice in the area you are serving. Use caution and always use gloves and tongs when handling dry ice. Just skip it altogether if safety precautions can’t be followed.
