Looking to give your Valentine a gift better than a dozen roses? Make them our refreshing rose and Amaro Valentine’s Day Cocktail! If you love the combination of floral and citrus flavours, you will adore this cocktail called “Kiss from a Rose.” This cocktail is a refreshing and elegant drink that will make you feel like you are in a rose garden with your Valentine. It has a delicate and fragrant taste, a smooth and frothy texture, and the colour of a classic red rose🌹
The name Kiss from a Rose is inspired by the Seal song with the same name, which always reminds me of the masterpiece Batman Forever and my forever-and-always Bruce Wayne 😍. This cocktail is a tribute to the song and the movie, and of course, a way to express your love and appreciation for your partner! It is a perfect drink for Valentine’s Day or any other occasion that calls for a romantic and sophisticated cocktail. We hope you enjoy this floral and citrusy cocktail as much as we do, and we wish you a happy Valentine’s Day. Cheers! 🥂

Fat 0.75oz* – Lemon Juice
1tsp – Rose Water

Using our Controlled Entropy Amaro as a base spirit allows us to skip any extra syrups or sweeteners. This lets us reduce the number of ingredients needed to reproduce this cocktail and lets our Amaro shine and take a leading role. The floral violet notes of the Amaro pair perfectly with rose water, and the gentle acidity from lemon juice brightens up the cocktail creating a beautiful balance. Adding an egg white adds a smooth and frothy texture to the cocktail, and helps lighten the cocktail without watering it down. It also helps create a nice foam on top of the drink, which looks amazing!
Want an even lighter effervescent cocktail? Add a splash of sparkling water!
