Cocktail Friday - The Grounds Of Alexandria 'The Valentine's' Cocktail

So pretty and so delicious, with Valentine’s Day now only a few sleeps away, we just couldn’t resist a little bit of this ‘love potion’. Created by Petr Pinos Jr, the head bartender at The Grounds of Alexandria, we think it’s the pretty pink colour that swooned us – or was it the flowers – or the rum mixed back with raspberries and creme de cassis? Or perhaps all three…. Happy Valentine’s Day love birds!


30 ml  white rum
15 ml creme de cassis (blackcurrant liqueur)
15 ml creme de cacao dark
10 ml fresh vanilla cream
45 ml fresh raspberries


Place all ingredients into a cocktail shaker and shake! Pour into a beautiful glass (remember this serves 2). Top with some fresh flowers and fragrant herbs.
Tip: To go that extra mile and show off your skills, put some rosewater ice into the cocktail rather than normal ice.
