Cupid’s Arrow

Sharing is caring!

It is really fun to have a special cocktail to serve on a special occasion such as Valentine’s Day.  We typically enjoy a nice bottle of bubbly, but with my latest obsession Punt e Mes, we will be enjoying Cupid’s Arrow to start the celebration of love. 

Cupid's Arrow

Are you familiar with Punt e Mes?  I wasn’t until I enjoyed a cocktail at a local bar recently, and I was intrigued by the bitterness that came with each sip.  I mean wildly intrigued.  The next day we ran over to our favorite liquor store and picked up a bottle.  We felt very lucky as if the stars were lined up for us as it was the last bottle to be found.

Ever since I have been enjoying a splash in my tonics as well as on its own while relaxing over bad TV.  What is this Punt e Mes some of you may be wondering?  It is an Italian vermouth which is a rich brown color and has a unique bitterness that ends slightly sweet.  So complex, and somewhat unexplainable.

Cupid’s Arrow is made with some of our favorite bubbles, a heavy splash of Punt e Mes and a swirl made with a Luxardo cherry.

Happy Valentines’ Day – may Cupid’s Arrow find his or her way to your heart or at least in the form of a delicious cocktail!

Oh my gosh... what a drink! Definitely not a pairing I would've thought of. And I do adore a good, rich cherry in my drink.

Me too - those cherries are the best! I could eat them by the spoonful. xo
