We’re fully embracing the romance here on Female Original this Valentine’s Day with three delicious cocktail recipes to try at home. I’ve already shared recipe number one, which is a Burleighs Pink Gin Fizz (so make sure to check it out), but now it’s time for number two: the Fentimans Sparkling Raspberry Gin Spritz.
Fentimans Sparkling Raspberry Gin Spritz
Ideal for afternoon Valentine’s, Galentine’s or whatever-you-fancy-tine’s drinking, the Fentimans Sparkling Raspberry Gin Spritz is an easy-drinker of a cocktail that’s definitely going to be a crowdpleaser. For the inspiration for this cocktail, I looked towards the classic Tom Collins. Typically made using gin, lemon juice, sugar syrup and soda water, the Tom Collins is an absolute staple. But, since it’s v-day and all, I thought I’d shake things up and swap the soda for Fentimans Sparkling Raspberry*. On paper, it’s similar to a Tom Collins, but in reality, it’s totally unique. Sweet yet citrusy, with a beautiful bright pink hue – a real v-day treat!
