Why is Craft Gin Club's Cupid's Kiss the perfect Valentine's Day cocktail recipe?
It's not just the name that makes this cocktail ideal for Valentine's Day. It's the ingredients, flavour and colour that make it so special.
The recommended gin for this cocktail is Gin Mezzanotte, Craft Gin Club's February 2024 Gin of the Month. Delivered in a beautiful pink bottle adorned with a rose, it certainly has the perfect Valentine's Day look to woo your favourite gin fan.
However, it's the flavour of this gin that really makes it ideal for the romance season. Yes, there is that quintessential base of juniper, which is rich and earthy, but on top of that, the master distillers at Distilleria Mezzanotte have added marvellous chocolate, citrus and spice tones that are moreish and alluring in all of the best ways.
Valentine's Day just wouldn't be Valentine's Day without chocolate in some form, after all.
The mixer for this cocktail is Bon Accord Cream Soda. Fabulously effervescent, this artisan take on the classic cream soda is brimming with marvellously mellow vanilla flavours that are sumptuous and luxurious - the perfect way to treat your Valentine, Galentine or Palentine.
And then the cocktail is rounded out wonderfully with Craft Gin Club's bespoke Cupid's Kiss Cocktail Syrup, which is a sweet and smooth medley of strawberry and lime flavours.
Finished with a heart-shaped strawberry garnish, Craft Gin Club's Cupid's Kiss and Valentine's Day are a match made in heaven.
