Our friends over at Liquor Mart recently held a Valentine's Day contest, and the winner received a complimentary stay at the Hotel Boulderado. The winner, Jenny Redpath Wilhelm, submitted an amazing recipe with a musical twist: The Love Song.
To make 2 servings of the Love Song, you will need:
2 oz. ABSOLUT Vanilla Vodka
1 oz. Chambord Raspberry Liqueur
8 oz. Blood Orange Italian Soda
splash of Mathilde Blackcurrant Liqueur
6 frozen raspberries
1 heart-shaped raspberry
1 guitar-shaped cucumber (garnishments optional, but pretty mandatory if you want that WOW factor)
Add the first four ingredients together in a mixing glass. Shake well with ice. Strain into a glass of your choice. Add 3 frozen raspberries to each glass. Add ice, if needed/desired. Garnish one drink with a heart-shaped raspberry and the other with the guitar.
According to its maker, "this cocktail will definitely play on your heart strings!"
