Cocktail(s) of The Month – February

A classic way to begin the evening is with champagne perhaps with a blush of Pom liqueur or Cassis with two raspberries swimming in the bottom of the glass or try something different.
A Valentine Aperitif ~
A Touch of Venus

Refreshing, light, would also look nice with a strawberry on the rim.

Ingredients:

3 oz. dry white wine
1 oz. Limoncello (sweet lemon liqueur, I keep it in the freezer-yum!)
1/2 tsp. amaretto
1/2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
Lemon spiral, garnish

Preparation:

Add liquids to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake for five seconds and strain into a large wine goblet.

Place lemon spiral garnish on top, and declare: “Love’s gentle spring doth always fresh remain.” — Shakespeare, Venus and Adonis

  7. Everything sounds wonderful. I love to try and fix different cocktails. I make a ginger drop martini that I think if fabulous.

  8. I love what Pink Champagne said–Is it bad to crave both? They both equally sound delicious to me! Love the first one though–I bet I could drink a few of those! Very refreshing.
    It just started snowing again, so I have my work cut out for me in a few hours. Not suppose to stop until late tomorrow night. Wish I had the ingredients for your cocktails!!
