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!

Pair it with these tunes

So what should you listen to when you whip up your own Fentimans Sparkling Raspberry Gin Spritz this Valentine’s Day? I’ve got you covered! The vibrant pink colour of this cocktail was the inspiration behind my songs choices. I wanted to choose songs that captured the fun, bright feeling of the drink and I hope you can agree that the three songs that I chose do just that.
