Do we really need an excuse to drink bubbly? Although on Valentine’s Day, how can one (or, in the spirit of the holiday, two) truly resist? Call it commercial, cliché, but there is no denying that Hearts Day can put the fizz in one’s bottle and the pop in one’s cork. Champagne may not be to everyone’s budget or taste, so why not try an Italian Prosecco , Spanish Cava, Crémant de Bourgogne, or even a California sparkler? These dazzling drinks made with alternative bubblies showcase ingredients that add a tantalizing twist for a romantic evening in.
Silver Fleet Fizz
2 ounces dry gin, such or Larios Rosé gin from Spain, if available
1 ounce wild strawberry liqueur, such as Fragola
4 ounces dry Cava or other sparkling wine
Pour gin into a tall glass. Add strawberry liqueur. Top up glass with chilled Cava. Add half a strawberry into the glass.
1 ½ ounces Citron Pressé (French for “lemonade”: just mix lemon, water and sugar and adjust sweetness according to taste)
