Valentine's Gin Fizz !

Valentine's Day is almost here, and if you are having a Valentine's night in, you may like to start the evening with this Valentine's gin cocktail recipe. It's mixed with sweet raspberry and rose lemonade and a scattering of frozen fruit for an easy tipple for two, it's 5g carbs per serving.


Ingredients
Serves Two 
ice cubes
160g frozen summer fruit mix
50ml gin
300ml raspberry and rose lemonade, chilled

½ lemon, juiced, plus extra slices to garnish

Method

1. Divide ice cubes and frozen fruit between 2 tall glasses.
2. Pour 25ml of gin into each glass and top up with the raspberry and rose lemonade (approximately 150ml each). Squeeze over the lemon juice and use a long spoon or skewer to swirl the cocktail.

3. Garnish with a slice of lemon and serve immediately. 
See original recipe here 

Cheers ! 

For those who may not want an alcoholic drink, why not consider water and spruce it up with herbs like rosemary, basil and mint. You could add healthy squeezes of lime or lemon juice, fiery ginger or something cooler like some slices of cool, refreshing cucumber. So many choices...
