A Rainbow of Love Cocktail

I could not get my act together to share this cocktail with you before Valentine's Day.   Since the holiday falls on a Thursday, I suspect there will be people who will be celebrating this weekend.

This is an Italian inspired, very romantic cocktail that was created after the amazing rainbows that are often seen through the windows of Ristorante Covo die Saraceni in Positano Italy.  

Happy Valentine's Day.


A Rainbow of Love Cocktail
Recipe from HGTV

Ingredients:
1 bottle of chilled Prosecco
1/2 ounce dry gin
1/2 ounce Cointreau
1 ounce chilled pineapple juice
1/2 ounce chilled orange juice
1/2 ounce chilled grapefruit juice
1 whole strawberry

Directions:
Chill a long fluted champagne glass a few hours in the refrigerator before preparing.  When ready to serve, remove the glass and pour in juices, gin and a touch of Cointreau.  Fill the rest of the glass with Prosecco.  Gently stir, and drop a strawberry in the bottom of the glass.

Enjoy.

Love the way this recipe sounds. I have my dinner group in May and I think this may very well be the cocktail I will serve with apps. May give it another name though and it sounds delish. Thanks for sharing.

That look's beautiful. I'm currently reading "Mediterranean Summer," a book about the author's time as a chef aboard a yacht in Italy, and I just read about Positano. The book is a lovely read, if you're interested!
