Valentine Cocktail: The Hummingbird


I think this flirty pink drink is perfect for Valentine's Day. It's light, citrusy and bubbly, my favorite qualities in a beverage. The recipe is courtesy of St. Germain, makers of the French elderflower liqueur. I just substituted a sparkling rosé for the champagne to achieve the delicate shade of pink.

The (Pink) Hummingbird
Recipe courtesy of St. Germain

2 parts Brut champagne or dry sparkling wine, rosé if you prefer
1 1/2 parts St. Germain
2 parts club soda or sparkling water

Stir ingredients, mixing completely. Serve cold or over ice in a tall glass. Garnish with a lemon twist or peel.

Happy Valentine's Day! Thanks for indulging me in my Valentine's week projects! In case you missed it:
a heart tee
amaretto mousse and heart-shaped cookies
a sweet pretzel for your sweetheart
cards and a carrier
