Valentine’s day is two weeks away, and while Mr. Suburble and I don’t do big gifts or fanfares for each other, I do love to celebrate all-things-pink-and-heart-shaped.
I’m thrilled to be a part of a Valentine’s Day blog hop with 25 other amazing Canadian bloggers. The talent in this group is amazing – once you’ve gotten the recipe for this delicious blood orange drink, visit the other girls at the bottom of this post.
In our house, we’re all suckers for a good blood orange drink. The San Pellegrino Blood Orange flavoured (or Aranciata) bubbly water is one that both kids and parents scramble for in the fridge.
When I was thinking about ingredients for a pink cocktail, the Aranciata drink immediately came to mind.
My girlfriend, Allison, gifted me this beautiful bottle of Limoncello, and I think it’s the perfect addition to any citrus-themed drink. That and a half ounce of Cointreau makes this drink an easy-sipper.
- 1 ounce Limoncello
- 1/2 ounce Cointreau
- 3 ounces San Pellegrino Aranciata
- Berry flavoured cocktail rimmer (optional)
- Lemon for garnish
- Run a lemon wedge along the rim of the cocktail glass
- Dip in rimmer until the rim of the class is covered
- Add ice to glass
- Pour in Limoncello and Cointreau
- Add San Pellegrino Aranciata
- Finish with a lemon wedge
This cocktail is a delicious and sweet way to toast love – whether it’s romantic or just the love of friends and a fun evening.
And it’s easy to make a virgin version for the kidlets!
