Cocktail Hour // Raspberries + Champagne

TEC-Valentines-Day-Cocktail-Hour-1

While fanciful libations with half a dozen ingredients and an equal number of barkeeper techniques can be the perfect treat for some occasions, sometimes it’s the simplest combinations that hit the spot.  This little Valentine’s treat could not be easier to make and it’s gorgeous to look at, too!  My favorite touch?  These heart-shaped ice cubes from Williams-Sonoma!  Ahh!  I’m already brainstorming other uses for them.  In the meantime, though, keep reading for this sweet and simple Valentine’s recipe…
