Not because Valentine's Day is fast approaching. (Ugh. I hate Valentine's Day, a day that seems designed to play on teenagers' insecurity - at least it did on mine when I was 14).
No, love is in the air because it was my boyfriend's birthday yesterday.
I love birthdays, especially other people's and most especially his. I love being given the opportunity to show him just how much I appreciate having him in my life. (Soppy, but true.)
I made all sorts of delicious treats but we started off with these:
Raspberry Champagne Cocktails
(Or to be more precise, Raspberry Prosecco Cocktails)
Here's what you need to make them:
- At least 30 mins before you plan to drink these ruby-red beauties, put your raspberries in a small bowl and pour over the creme de cassis.
(Don't they look lovely?)
- Place two or three raspberries and some of the raspberry-infused liqueur in a champagne flute.
- Fill with your fizzy wine of choice.
- Add a few drops of Grenadine to taste.
- Make a toast and enjoy.
I had a few too many of these so my head is a little wobbly today. But we all have to suffer a little for love, don't we? Anyway, they were worth it.
