Blushing Bouquet Tom Collins

This Blushing Bouquet Tom Collins is the perfect floral gin cocktail for your romantic Valentine’s Day date night at home!

Blushing Bouquet Tom Collins

Well, It’s not even February and I’m already coming at you with a Valentine’s Day recipe. Weeeee! ♥️ I had to make sure that I did a cocktail this year and this Blushing Bouquet Tom Collins doesn’t disappoint.

If you know me, you know that gin is my jam. I usually go for a basic gimlet or G&T, but the Tom Collins is a classic cocktail that shouldn’t be ignored. I mean, it’s been around since the 1800’s… it deserves some respect! I did put a modern twist on it (As my tagline would suggest), but the basis is pretty similar.

You can’t have a Valentine’s Day cocktail without it being either pink or floral, so I decided to go with both! I knew I wanted to add elderflower because I’m totally obsessed and a hint of rose to represent the romantic holiday.

Luckily, I remembered that Belvoir makes a lovely elderflower and rose lemonade that couldn’t be more perfect. If you can’t find it, I put alternate instructions in the recipe so you can enjoy this cocktail no matter what.

Seriously, I know it sounds weird to describe a cocktail as sexy, but this cocktail is sexy AF. They say that a bit of alcohol (in moderation) can give you more confidence, but I really think that there’s something about this drink that makes you feel confident and sexy.

Perfect for V-Day if you ask me. I can’t wait to make this again and I hope you do too!
