This Latino Valentine's Day cocktail is the perfect aphrodisiac (RECIPE)
Never before a cocktail had such a perfect name. Corazón has everything a cocktail needs to succeed: a superb liquor, the sweetness of real maple syrup, the citrus of freshly squeezed lime juice, and the crispy flavor of fresh raspberry. Raspberry also brings the spectacular color that makes this concoction so vibrant, exciting, and the perfect drink for Valentine's Day.
To have the fresh raspberry ready to use, I muddled the berries, strained the resulting puree and discarded the seeds. It's amazing what half an ounce of this fruit can create! I choose to pour it in a flute kind of a Martini glass, just because I love the shape, and also because it seem to me, more romantic for the occasion. I hope you like it.
