Besides some of the obvious Valentine’s Day drinks like Champagne or a Pomegranate Martini here’s an unusual but delicious mix of liquids.
Tequila isn’t an obvious partner to sparkling wine, but put them together in this elegant, cocktail. Light and effervescent, the Divinity manages to stay on the dry side, even with the subtle, aromatic touch of fruits from the combination of pomegranate liqueur, rose nectar, and guarana-spiked Remy Martin Cognac. The final touch is a delicate gold-dusted rose petal.

¾ ounce Partida Blanco tequila
¾ ounce Pama pomegranate liqueur
½ ounce Remy Red Liqueur
