February’s guest cocktail was the ‘Hotline Bling’ – created and named with Valentine’s Day in mind.

 

Designed for two to share although it could just as easily be sipped by one, it involved a generous amount of the somewhat-neglected premium rose petal-based liqueur, Lanique.

 

The sweetness of the Lanique was well balanced out in this lovers’ libation by a good amount of Cocchi Americano, Cranberry, Balsamic and Boker’s bitters.

 

If you missed out on this month’s guest cocktail, then you can look ahead towards our next one – the Whiskey-soaked Kildare cocktail, made with one eye firmly fixed on St Patrick’s Day on 17th March.
