What are you doing for Valentine’s Day? Are you going out for a romantic dinner, or if you’re single are you staying in eating a whole tub of ice cream on your own? Regardless of which, I’ve got a great tip for a cocktail you can make for yourself (recipe is easy to double) or for yourself and your Valentine. It’s a version of the classic Disaronno Sour, called Disaronno Sour Royale. The difference is the addition of cranberry juice, and it really does make a difference in flavour as well as in colour (red for Valentine’s of course!)

The recipe is simple. This is what you need and you simple mix them and serve:

·         50ml Disaronno

·         25ml Lemon juice

·         25ml Cranberry juice

·         Topped up with sparkling wine

I didn’t have any ice at home (I know, disgraceful) but as the ingredients were chilled anyway it was absolutely fine without ice. I was planning on serving it in short cocktail glasses at first but ended up serving the cocktail in wine glasses as the recipe contains sparkling wine. I also added a slice of lemon for garnish and some extra sour flavour.

I think some people can find the almond/marzipan flavour of Disaronno a bit overpowering, but I think it’s all in how you mix it and what you have it with. A lot of people like it on its own chilled as an aperitif, but I think my favourite must be the Disaronno Sour Royale.
