Our Top 5 Valentine’s Day Cocktails

Our Top 5 Valentine’s Day Cocktails

4-Minute Read

Whether you’re planning a special date night or a cosy night in this Valentine's Day, it is always best to add a fun cocktail into the mix. The holiday also falls on a Sunday this year so there are no excuses not to pop open a bottle of Pale Fox. Therefore, in honour of this romantic occasion, we have chosen a range of our prosecco cocktails for you to enjoy regardless of who you’re spending the day with. 

1. Foxglove

Pictured above, this is arguably the prettiest of the lot! The Foxglove not only tastes fresh and floral but its lilac colour really plays the part for a girly Valentine’s evening. The lavender, citrus and prosecco combine beautifully in this sour-style libation.

Ingredients

40ml Gin, 15ml Lemon Juice, 25ml Lavender Syrup, 1 Egg White, Pale Fox to top

Glass & Garnish

Coupe Glass from freezer, Lavender flower

Method

Shake all ingredients except Pale Fox, Double-strain into glass, Top with Pale Fox, Add Garnish

 

Raspberry Cocktail Prosecco Pale Fox

2. Raspberry Smash

Super simple to make but always impressive to serve to your other half. The sweet Chambord is an ideal contrast to the dry prosecco, leaving you with a perfectly balanced drink. The muddled raspberries will keep infusing throughout to add more layers of fruitiness.  

Ingredients

100ml Pale Fox, 15ml Chambord, 10ml Lemon Juice, 5-7 Muddled Raspberries

Glass & Garnish

Rocks Glass with cracked ice, Mint and Raspberries

Method

Add all ingredients except Pale Fox, Stir, Top with Pale Fox

 

Prosecco Cocktail

3. Fox Force 75

One for those without the need to participate in the pink or red theme. The Fox Force 75 is an elegant and effervescent staple for any celebratory occasion. More impactful than a mimosa, the Fox Force 75 will make a charming addition to your couples’ brunch.

Ingredients

25ml Gin, 15ml Lemon Juice, 15ml Simple Syrup, Pale Fox to top

Glass & Garnish

Champagne glass, Lemon Peel

Method

Shake gin lemon and simple syrup, Double strain into glass, Top with Pale Fox, Add garnish

 

Negroni Sbagliatio Prosecco Cocktail

4. Negroni Sbagliato

The Negroni Sbagliato is a bubbly version of its predecessor, the Negroni, with gin replaced by prosecco. Yet, with notes of citrus and a botanical aroma, this buoyantly bitter drink has a slightly sweeter finish. Created by chance in a bar in Milan in the 1980s, this ‘happy accident’ makes for an extremely enjoyable aperitif. 

Ingredients

25ml Campari, 25ml Aged Red Vermouth, Dash of Orange Bitters, Pale Fox to top

Glass & Garnish

Rocks Glass, Orange Peel

Method

Add all ingredients except Pale Fox, Stir, Top with Pale Fox, Add garnish

 

Prosecco Cocktail Pale Fox Strawberry Spritz

5. Wild Strawberry Spritz

We have added a wild strawberry twist to a classic spritz. Romantically, legend says that strawberries came from the heart-shaped tears of Aphrodite after she learned of her lover Adonis’ death. Now recognised as an aphrodisiac, the strawberries welcome a fruity dimension to the bittersweet flavour of Campari. You can follow the recipe below or, if you're feeling lazy, then we've done the hard work for you with our Wild Strawberry Spritz Kit.

Ingredients

20ml Campari, 20ml Strawberry Syrup, Pale Fox to top

Glass & Garnish

Large Copa Glass filled with ice, Blood Orange Wedge

Method

For the Strawberry Syrup: Combine equal parts strawberries, sugar and water, Simmer for 5 minutes, Strain, Cool

Combine all ingredients, Add garnish
