Valentine’s Day is one of our favourite days of the year here at NB Gin. And what better way to celebrate it, than with one of our very own themed Valentine’s Day gin cocktails?
Chocolates and flowers are good but aren’t they just a little clichéd these days? Let’s put them to one side for the moment and let’s get the gin out!
Raspberry Martini Fizz
The ideal Valentine’s Day drink can be made in around 10 minutes.
Combine 25ml of Martini with 25ml of NB Gin into a chilled champagne glass that has already had half a teaspoon of icing sugar placed in to it.
Quick spin with the spoon.
Top it off with a healthy splash of Prosecco and add in some chilled raspberries.
The raspberries give it that visual appearance of love as you look through the glass.
Raspberry Clover Club
How many of you have ever tried a Clover Club? They’re delicious!
The beauty of these cocktails is that they are super quick and easy to make.
Grab 35ml of NB Gin, 15ml raspberry syrup, 20ml fresh lemon juice and an egg white and place all these ingredients into a Boston mixer.
Next, strain into a Martini glass and garnish with a raspberry.
Raspberries and Valentine’s Day just seem to go hand in hand? Don’t you think?
Raspberry and Lavender Fizz
A similar spin to the Raspberry Martini Fizz, the Raspberry and Lavender Fizz offers a slightly easier drink to enjoy if you want to go down the simple route on Valentine’s Day.
In a coupette glass add 25ml NB Gin, 15ml lavender liqueur (or raspberry liqueur – we are raspberry mad today!), topped off with Prosecco and a handful of fresh raspberries.
The flavours compliment each other so well in this gin cocktail.
So, there you have it. These are our favourite Valentine’s Day gin cocktails to enjoy with your loved ones on one of our favourite days of the year. What’s the key message for Valentine’s Day cocktails? Go wild with raspberries!
Whatever you decide to do this Valentine’s Day, be sure to have a good one… and make it romantic!
