Heart On (A Valentine’s Day Cocktail)
Imagine a special and romantic Valentine’s Evening- Lovely music, Aromatic foods. He sees the beauty he fell in love with, and you immediately give him a ‘Heart on’
A delicious romantic cocktail of Prosecco, Ruby Red Grapefruit Vodka, and Pomegranate arils. The Pomegranate looks like little hearts and they literally dance in the flute-the Best Valentine’s Sparkling drink ever! This Valentines themed drink is also interesting. The Pomegranate seeds give a burst of flavor as you get to the bottom- It’s almost like finding that toy in the cereal box!
Going back to the Biblical story of the Garden of Eden, it was thought that the ‘Apple’ was the forbidden fruit, but with further study, the translation in Hebrew is “Fruit”. Since apples do not grow in the middle-east, there is speculation that the real Forbidden fruit was actually the Pomegranate. Perfect for our Seductive and Romantic Lover’s Cocktail.
This drink is best assembled right before your Valentine’s Party or date. Don’t worry it is so easy and takes minutes to assemble. Making the cocktail right before it is served, helps with the magic of the dancing hearts! If you are planning Valentine’s for two, you might save money by buying the small Deep Eddy Ruby Red Vodka. If you are planning a Valentine’s party- buy the large size- you will love it anyways!
