Countdown to V-Day – Part II

A Strawberry Kir is a beautiful cocktail to serve for Valentine's Day with 1 part Hiram Walker Crème de Strawberry and topped with your favorite sparkling wine.

The Champagne Cocktail is a quintessential romantic drink.

Serving a glass (or two!) of your favorite sparkling wine is a great addition to a Valentine’s Day meal planned at home. By adding a splash of of liqueur to that champagne flute, you can transform your drink from classic effervescence to lively refreshment. Here are a few options to consider as you plan your Valentine’s Day menu:

  • Crème de Cassis – Hiram Walker’s currant liqueur is a  must have for the popular Kir Royale
  • Crème de Strawberry – The beautiful red color and all-natural flavors in Hiram Walker’s product will undoubtedly make you think “love”
  • Peach Puree – Freshly blended is best to make a classic Bellini
  • Pomegranate Liqueur- Pomegranate essence with champagne will make a girl feel truly pampered, and Hiram Walker’s product is a cost-saving alternative to some other pricey liqueurs on the market
  • Elderflower liqueur – This floral component in St. Germain is a classic reminder of summer
  • Homemade syrups – Although these aren’t infused with alcohol, making a homemade syrup with floral notes is sure to pack a punch to your champagne cocktail. Rose and Lavender are among some favorites I’ve tried in cocktails before.

What other liqueurs do you recommend pairing with champagne or sparkling wine? Please, share your suggestions.

Cheers!
