Valentine’s Day is upon usand what better way to see‚ our loved ones than through the happy haze of a rose-colored cocktail? Whether you’re sipping solo or celebrating with a special someone, a drink that’s pretty and pink is a must. Rich in hue (thanks to raspberry liqueur) and in flavor (hello, fragrant rosewater and gin), this frothy little number is a keeper.
