Graham of Floyd’s Thirst Parlor has created for us a cocktail from the heart – well, it is Valentine’s Day this month!
The Devil in Love comes out a little sweet, pink in hue, bubbly, and highly approachable. The Briottet Creme de Pêche is a sweet, viscous liqueur with a vibrant peach flavor that is more natural than your average peach schnapps. The blood orange character of the Campari blends perfectly with it while its bitterness combats the high sugar content of the Pêche. Add floral and tart hibiscus and champagne - and you have a seductive flavor profile that can please just about anyone. Well suited for Valentine's Day celebrations.
