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.


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


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
