Lime Mint Fizz Cocktail

Love (English), amore (Italian), liefde (Dutch), rakkaus (Finnish), amour (French), gra (Irish), dragoste (Romanian), cariad (Welsh), liebe (German) — however you say it, love is a universal language expressed in myriad ways, through the spoken and written word, through song, by gifts of jewelry, flowers, or chocolates, with a smile and a wink, by dancing slowly cheek to cheek, with a celebratory drink, by holding hands, by kissing, by passionate lovemaking, and sometimes simply by just being there to comfort and listen to your beloved.  It’s a language understood by everyone. Love feels good. It’s a balm for the soul. Love works its magic on the human heart.

And speaking of love, springtime is a time of romance. How about creating a simple romantic date night at home with your sweetie? No need to go out to have a nice time. Simply cook your favorite dinner, light some candles to set the mood, or watch a movie together. Just relax and do whatever you both love to do.

For your sipping pleasure, might I suggest a bright and bold beverage?  Here is my mocktail version of the classic Cosmopolitan: a Lime-Mint Fizz with Cranberry Ice. It’s sure to delight your senses, being both beautiful to behold and tongue-tantalizingly delicious — one of my absolute favorite recipes!

This oh-so-tasty, slightly tart, ruby-red, refreshing drink is perfect for Valentine’s Day, birthdays, or any special occasion in which red is the color of the day and love is in the air. I’m sure you’ll enjoy this delectable drink as much as I do. Cheers!
