Cupid’s Cocktail Recipe
This was a really fun cocktail recipe to make. It’s got so much going on – it’s swimming with love, hearts and all things pink and red!
We added star-struck arrows (cocktail picks) with strawberries, pomegranate seeds, pink vodka ice cubes… and that was before we even started mixing the cocktail!
Of course, you can just do make the cocktail and leave out all of those fun little add-ons, but it’s Valentine’s Day – why not have some fun!
While I love my old-fashion champagne glasses which you can see in use for my Champagne Sorbet Float recipe, this champagne cocktail really benefits from being served in a flute – it allows for the bubbles to stay fresh longer and creates a nice layering of all the different cocktail components.
It’s helpful to make the vodka ice cubes and deseed the pomegranate a few hours before making the Cupid’s Cocktail – but if you forget, just skip the ice cubes.
