I am not sure what’s been going on with me lately. It seems my mind has been focused on Valentine’s Day for weeks. Which, is unusual for me as I have always struggled with the holiday in the past. However, over the last year or two, I find myself drawn towards wanting to celebrate it with Kim. I wonder if it has to do with growing into adulthood. Perhaps, it is a byproduct of a long term relationship. In other words, as the years go by, I find myself more and more in love with my wife. Either way, it seems after all these years, I‘m a romantic at heart. Fortunately, cooking is an outlet in which I can express those feelings. So, when Drizly approached us about a partnership, I quickly accepted another opportunity to make something special for Valentine’s Day.
This drink recipe is solely dedicated to Kim. I went to Drizly’s website and discovered they were an online liquor store with delivery options. The selections were amazing, and they offered just about any beverage you could want to build your wet bar. After much self-deliberation, I finally decided on what I should make for Kim. Every flavor was picked because I knew it catered to her tastes. From the fruity Chambord to the tart citrus vodka, each ingredient was selected for her enjoyment. The only tricky part was determining the correct amounts of each liquor. Once again, Drizly came through for me because they have a space dedicated to recipes. It didn’t take long for me to peruse a few recipes and determine the right mixture amounts for my concoction.
Putting together a Chambord citrus tonic is easy. All you need to do is add ice to a shaker or mixing cup. Afterward, add the Chambord, vodka, and tonic water. Then give the mixture a quick stir. Finally, pour the drink into a cocktail or martini glass and serve chilled. That’s it!
