Raspberry is not something that I immediately think of when I am thinking of bourbon. But I do think of raspberry when I think of a romantic dinner date. Can you follow me for a second… The ultimate date night is coming up soon and I have found the perfect way to celebrate with my hubby. I call it Raspberry Love!
While telling you about my Roasted Cranberry Bourbon Crush, I mentioned how Brooks and I met a bartender in Kentucky before attending the Derby, that changed my life. Raspberry Ginger Ale! Mixing raspberry ginger ale with bourbon makes a fabulous new cocktail that gets anybody loving bourbon and wanting it all the time.
The ultimate date night is coming up and I am planning a cheese board for two, some chocolate for dessert, and a cocktail that we can both enjoy. Bourbon is my hubby’s favorite spirit so I am going to make use of that. Remembering that raspberry ginger ale pairs well with the bourbon, I am staying with those flavors. Instead of a raspberry soda how about a raspberry liqueur? Chambord is the best raspberry liqueur and I know just where to get it. Or really how to get it.
I told you about Drizly when I introduced you to the Roasted Cranberry Bourbon Crush and how it is the best thing EVER! #Cocktailgoals
Opening up my laptop I simply open their website, search for Chambord, and with one click I add it to my cart. One more click and I am checking out and then getting ready for my date.
The Raspberry Love Couples Cocktail is the perfect blend of bourbon, Chambord, and a little bubbly added in to cut the richness. The caramel flavors of the bourbon pairs well with the tart fruit flavor of the Chambord to give you hints of dark chocolate. I was not expecting that when I put it together but now it goes well with dessert too!
I don’t know about you, but sipping this Raspberry Love cocktail with my hubby while sitting by the fire pit is the best way to spend Valentine’s Day. How are you celebrating?
