Valentine’s Day is next week! Since apparently we’re getting another snow apocalypse storm that day here in Seattle, Dan and I might be skipping the standard dinner rez and cook at home. This years signature cocktail? The raspberry rosé gin fizz!
This particular recipe may seem a smidge familiar. It’s probs because I used my favorite (and perfect for this pink and red holiday) raspberry liqueur from Whidbey Island Distillery! Last year we went for a raspberry lemon drop cocktail. However, I’ve been on a bit of a French 75 kick lately so it was time for a themed bubbly and gin beverage. Ergo, the raspberry rosé gin fizz!
As the name might suggest, instead of club soda or champagne, this cocktail uses festive pink tinged sparkling rosé for its bubbly effect. I prefer a drier one myself, especially when mixed with the sweet raspberry liqueur, but its up to you!
To make this raspberry rosé gin fizz super fancy, add a little bit of rose water. Not too much or else it’ll taste like you're drinking soap! Just the right amount compliments the liqueur and the sparkling rosé.
Well, I better go get ready for this snow storm headed our way, raspberry rosé gin fizz in hand. Cheers and stay warm!
A fun, festive drink for date night made with your favorite gin, sparkling rosé, and raspberry liqueur. Add a little bit of rose water for an extra special something. Great for Valentine's Day!
