This February 14th, Hendrick’s gin has devised the ultimate soiree takeover of St Valentine’s Day with their Raspberry Rose Royale. Hendrick’s Gin infused with the curious, yet marvelous essences of rose and cucumber are the perfect whimsical concoction. Hidden in mystery and immersed in legend, love concoctions have been scattered throughout human history for centuries.
Valentine’s Day first became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the medieval ages, when he wrote the poem Parlment of Foules in 1382, Chaucer wrote:
“For this was on seynt Volantynys day Whan euery bryd comyth there to chese his make. (For this was on Saint Valentine’s Day, when every bird cometh there to choose his mate.)
Over the centuries, Valentine’s Day has evolved into an occasion in which lovers express their love for each. Hendrick’s touch of the unusual seems fitting with their splendid gin cocktail concoction being topped with champagne celebrating the day with a twist. Raspberry Rose Royale offers the ultimate in romantic refreshment and is guaranteed to result in an affair to remember by ensuring your loved one feels like royalty.
25ml Hendrick’s Gin
5ml Sugar Syrup (sugar and boiled water mixed together)
One Fresh Raspberry
Top up with champagne.

And, for valentine’s Day, here’s a poem to go with your love cocktail:
To my dearest Valentine
Roses are red,
Cucumbers are green,
A G&T without Hendricks Gin
Is simply obscene.
Roses are red,
For that we are thankful,
For on this St Valentine’s,
We celebrate the unusual.
Our bottle is black,
Yet our cocktails are delicious,
So many do agree,
One may find it somewhat suspicious.
Hendricks Gin’s for the unusual,
Undeniably perfect for thee,
For the celebration love,
Be it for one, for two, or three.
Please enjoy the unusual responsibly.
