The Inspiration Behind the Cocktail

The Rose Wine Cocktail is inspired by the timeless allure of love itself—complex, nuanced, and profoundly beautiful. It is a drink that speaks of tender moments and shared whispers, of memories created and yet to be made. In crafting this cocktail, we aim not just to mix ingredients but to blend the very essence of romance into each glass.



To create this enchanting Valentine's Day cocktail, you will need:


- 1 bottle of chilled Rose wine

- 1/2 cup of fresh strawberries, plus extra for garnish

- 1/4 cup of simple syrup

- 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice

- Sparkling water or club soda

- A handful of fresh mint leaves, for garnish

- Ice cubes



Preparing the Strawberry Infusion


  1. Begin by using the Aura California Utility knife to finely slice 1/2 cup of fresh strawberries. The precision of the knife will ensure beautifully thin slices, perfect for infusing the cocktail with a burst of strawberry essence.
  2. In a pitcher, muddle the sliced strawberries with the simple syrup and fresh lemon juice, extracting their flavors to create a vibrant base for your cocktail.


Crafting the Cocktail

  1. To the strawberry infusion, add the chilled Rose wine, stirring gently to combine the flavors without diminishing the wine's delicate effervescence.
  2. Fill cocktail glasses with ice cubes to the brim, signifying the foundation of a relationship—strong and supportive.
  3. Pour the Rose wine and strawberry mixture over the ice, leaving room at the top for a splash of sparkling water or club soda. This addition brings a refreshing fizz to the cocktail, symbolizing the excitement and energy of love.


Garnishing with Elegance

  1. Garnish each glass with a whole strawberry, sliced halfway through the middle and perched on the rim, and a sprig of fresh mint. The strawberry serves as a reminder of the sweetness of love, while the mint adds a touch of freshness, signifying the growth and renewal inherent in every loving relationship.
