Cocktail du jour: I Heart Coconut

How gorgeous is this cocktail? Coconut and cherry are a perfect pair for the romantic month of February. Combining Cirôc coconut vodka with the newest member of the bar, Cherry Heering, creates an appropriately red and very delicious drink.

The tropical taste of the coconut blends well with the sweetness of the Cherry Heering, which tastes just like the leftover juice in the maraschino cherry jar but without all the fake chemicals and red dyes. It's a totally natural liqueur made in Denmark of crushed Danish cherries and neutral grain spirits.  

There are seven shopping days left until Valentine's Day, so while diamonds and exotic vacations might not be on the list this year, you can always find room in the grocery cart for liquor. Don't forget to throw in a bag of limes, we never seem to have fresh limes which is why Mr. C&G keeps a supply of bottled lime juice in the wine fridge.

Maybe I should ask for a lime tree for Valentine's Day. Cheers, lovers!
