In my quest to find the perfect drink for Valentines Day I have come across some absolute diamonds that have earned a firm place in my drinks cabinet. Of course with it coming up to February 14th there has to be something pink, something chocolatey and something with a little fire! Check below to see my top 5 ideal drinks to get you in the mood for love!
5. The classic celebration alcohol is of course Champagne. No list would be complete without a mention and there are so many fabulous cocktails you could make this Valentines day with the addition of a little Champagne!
4. Baileys Chocolat Luxe. If you are a lover of Baileys Original you will love this limited edition with the added flavour of Belgian Chocolate – very moreish!
3. Gordons Pink Gin. Inspired by an original Gordon’s recipe from the 1880s, the pink gin is perfectly crafted to balance the refreshing taste of Gordon’s with the natural sweetness of raspberries and strawberries, with the tang of redcurrant served up in a unique blushing tone. Made using only natural fruit flavours to guarantee the highest quality real berry taste. My personal favourite of all the pink gins out there!
2. Chase Rhubarb Vodka. If you have a sweet tooth this is perfect for you (or perhaps you just want to skip dessert and head straight for the cocktails!) This vodka is perfect to add subtle colour to delicate cocktails, but also ideal neat over ice too. With Champagne and a vanilla pod it tastes like rhubarb crumble.
And in my number one spot is X-Gin!
X-Gin is infused with cocoa beans from Colombia, Pietmonte hazelnuts, Avola almonds, wild Madagascan chilli peppers and vanilla pods. This delightful gin is a must for those that want to impress this Valentines day. Serve over ice with a topping of the chocolate nibs which infuse into the gin giving a glorious deep cocoa taste and scent! The X-Gin is hailed as an aphrodisiac so what better way to celebrate the day of love!
