The Sour Heart

An Anti-Valentine’s Day Cocktail

Valentine’s Day is this Tuesday and many of us agree it’s a holiday for suckers. Every year chocolate companies will charge you extra for the same product in heart-shaped packaging, flower vendors will jack up the price of plants that will die in a week, and restaurants, lingerie, jewelry and perfume vendors will offer items that will supposedly please your partner enough to get you laid that night.

For all of us who see through the bullshit, with or without a partner, I’ve come up with this cocktail recipe.

Valentine’s Day Lovers will probably accuse us of being sour, so I made this cocktail with Raspberry Sourpuss, a sour bright red liquor. Blue Curacao and pineapple juice keep this fun and festive, proving that we don’t need artificial hearts and flowers to enjoy the day.

Here’s How You Do It
Difficulty Level: Easy
Prep: About 5 minutes

Makes 1 cocktail


1 Tablespoon of Blue Curacao – A citrus flavor liqueur with a fun blue colour

2 Tablespoons of Raspberry Sourpuss

¼ Cup Pineapple Juice

Club Soda

3 Ice Cubes

1 Strawberry, Cut into quarters


1 Tall Glass

Measuring Spoons

Measuring Cup

1 Spoon to stir with

Put the juice, liquors, and ice in a glass and stir to combine.

Top up the glass with club soda.

Add some strawberry pieces for the finishing touch.

Now sit back, relax and enjoy your Valentine’s Day.

For those of you who love the holiday, stay tuned for the next entry when I’ll show you how to make a dessert to impress your sweetheart!
