My last minute choice for Valentine’s Day drinking


Mr Lyans rainy day spritz - fabulous unusual drinking for a food lover

I’m very late to the party to know about Mr Lyans, who is obviously a big noise in the bartending and cocktail making world, and does sound very inventive and innovative. But my choice of one of his pre-mixed cocktails came from a random search, rather than being impressed by the name!

Now, a Rainy Day Spritz may not be the most romantic name for a drink for Valentine’s Day, but the flavours sound delicious. This is a mix of raspberry eau de vie, vermouth and rhubarb liquer and can be drunk, well chilled, straight from the fridge.

Or if you really want to blast any thought of rainy days away then you can mix it with prosecco or wine. But it’s Valentine’s Day, surely bubbles are the order of the day? It would certainly make for something different from a bottle of pink cava, and have more flavour.

Available now from Master of Malt.
