His and Hers: Valentine’s Cocktail Recipes

Valentine's Day Cocktail Recipes

Last week we told you about our top Luxury Valentine’s Day Ideas in London, in that article was the King of Soho x Kettner’s collaboration. They’ve very kindly given us the recipes to the two Valentine’s cocktails they will be serving, as we thought they would interest those of you who are having Valentine’s Day at home. One has been designed for the ladies, while the other is more of a manly tipple.

Lost My Cherry

Ingredients

70ml King of Soho London Dry Gin
20ml Noilly Prat Original Dry
5ml Maraschino liqueur
Powdered sherbet
Garnish: Maraschino cherry

Method

Fill a mixing glass with ice. Add the gin, vermouth and maraschino liqueur and stir gently to dilute. Moisten the rim of a coup glass and dip in powdered sherbet, then strain the liquid into a glass and garnish with a maraschino cherry

Old Soho Fox

Ingredients

50ml King of Soho London Dry Gin
10ml Water
5ml Grenadine
Aromatic Bitters
Garnish: Grapefruit peel

Method

Stir together aromatic bitters, brown sugar and a squeeze of grapefruit to create a paste. Add water and grapefruit peel before adding 12.5ml of King of Soho gin, and continue to stir, gradually adding 12.5mls of gin at a time with ice. Stir for 5-6 minutes to dilute and add a bar spoon of grenadine to colour. Take a twist of grapefruit and squeeze over the glass to release and impart its essential oils on the serve. Garnish with the grapefruit peel and enjoy.
