Mi Amore

Mi AmoreIf the French 75 that we posted about yesterday isn’t your valentine’s thing, you may want to offer up this rose-red, sweet cocktail that we came up with. The Mi Amore or My Love. A perfect gift to give if you forgot to get flowers on the way home from work on Valentine’s Day.

As the name suggests, this cocktail is made mostly from Italian ingredients – Prosecco (Italian sparkling white wine), Limoncello (Italian lemon liqueur), Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur and Vodka (OK, I didn’t use an Italian vodka, but they exist if you’re a purist). It’s even garnished with a Luxardo maraschino cherry from guess where . . .

  • 3/4 oz Vodka (I used Ketel One)
  • 1/2 oz Limoncello
  • 1/2 oz Blood Orange Liqueur (I used Solerno)
  • Enough Prosecco to fill the flute
  • A dash of Grenadine for color
  • Cherries for garnish (I used Luxardo)
  • Red sugar to rim the glass if you care

This part is entirely optional: If you’re going to go for that knock out romantic blow, you’re going to want to rim the glass with sugar. This part is completely optional. First, pour some Blood Orange Liqueur into one small bowl and sugar in another. The bottom of the bowl only needs to be slightly larger than the diameter of the flute. For the sugar, it looks best when its granular, although it works with fine sugar as well. You only need about 1/16th – 1/8th of an inch of each in the bowls. Dip the rim of the glass into the liqueur and then into the sugar. It may help to rotate the glass in the sugar a bit to make sure it’s evenly coated.

Pour the Vodka, Limoncello and Blood Orange Liqueur into your favorite shaker and chill the ingredients. Then, gently strain the mixture into the champagne flute, trying not to disturb the beautiful job you did rimming the glass. Then, with the same care, fill the flute with Prosecco. If it’s a small flute, you may want to go all the way. If it’s Slurpee size, like the one here, you may just want to fill it about 2/3rds of the way.

Eccolo! A romantic drink for Valentine’s Day or any time you want to express your love with a cocktail.
