Recipes Tasty Treats To Sip On

The Love Potion Cocktail

The "love potion" cocktail! Blackberry thyme + champagne <3

Though we don’t typically do a whole lot when it comes to Valentine’s Day around here, I do like to commemorate the occasion in some small way each year. Whether it’s a homemade dinner with girlfriends or a blanket fort with my man friend, there’s one thing that should always be considered and that’s a festive beverage. Not to fear – I’ve got you covered. This right here is the best Valentine’s day cocktail in existence! One part blackberry syrup, one part sparkling wine, with a little bit of love sprinkled in for good measure. It’s pink, it’s sparkly, it’s the perfect concoction for the upcoming holiday.

    Quick question–what does strain blackberries mean?

      You just need to pour the syrup through a strainer to remove all of the chunks/seeds. Reserve the syrup for your cocktail but toss the chunks
