February Cocktail: Cupid’s Crush

Cupid's Crush.1a

Naturally, we like Valentine’s Day over here. It involves a lot of our daily activities, such as drinking wine, eating chocolate, and being sweet to each other. You might say it’s our office culture. Simply drinking wine and eating chocolate and being sweet to each other on Valentine’s Day would actually be cheating. So we upped the ante and made a cocktail.

Cupid’s Crush is:

6 strawberries, stems removed, halved
2 Tbsp honey
1 basil leaf
3 oz Oliver Shiraz 2010
2 oz cranberry cocktail

Muddle strawberries, honey and basil in a cocktail shaker. Add ice, Oliver Shiraz and cranberry cocktail. Shake vigorously and strain into a sugar-rimmed glass. Garnish with sliced strawberries and basil.

If you’re staying in tonight, make this at home and tell us what you think.

P.S. Will you be our Valentine?
