This year I’m smitten, not because of a new romance, but because I’ve had the pleasure to love the same man for more than 20 years. With this kind of time comes an understanding of moods, fleeting kisses, cuddles, and the contentment to spend the evening watching television. Little is expected in the way of fancy gifts and expensive roses on Valentine’s Day, it’s a cozy meal and quality time together that means the most to us. And while we would normally reach for a bottle of wine, this year we celebrate our time together with a fruity and flirty Raspberry Rum Punch.
The vibrant colour and fruity taste makes it a delightful cocktail to sip and enjoy with your sweetheart. In fact, it’s even better with your long time love because it’s out of the comfort zone. Something new and refreshing! A slightly fizzy cocktail to “cheers” each other, with a love that is signified with the comfort found in one another. The fact that this cocktail is vibrant with raspberry flavour and rather delicious doesn’t hurt either. It might just mean we’ll have to have two. Happy Valentine’s Day!
