Enjoy a light and refreshing cocktail this Valentine's Day! Have you ever realized that love is often celebrated by popping a bottle of champagne and toasting to the occasion whether it be a wedding, housewarming, or promotion...and that is exactly what we are going to do. What would make the recipe even better? Pairing it with a box of chocolates and a dozen roses.

The blackberry simple syrup adds a touch of sweetness and is grounded by hints of thyme. We're all about keeping our recipes simple yet sophisticated so you can easily enjoy something a little outside of the box with items found in your home or at your local market.
