It is Valentine's Day. Did you forget? Are you in charge of drinks for tonight's romantic dinner? I saved the last Sweetheart Sip specifically for you because you can create this cocktail in one stop to the liquor or grocery store and they will never know how easy it was. You may even have everything in the bar right now.
Consider this an enhanced Vodka Tonic. It employs Belvedere Citrus Vodka and tonic water along with bitters. The lime of the typical garnish in most tonics is amplified here by using a lime syrup, which is a delightful sweet twist. It is also likely to be easier to make lime syrup than find it at the store, so that recipe is included and all you need is limes, sugar, and water. Quick and hand-crafted, this little drink is a sweet gesture. Get the Sweetheart Swizzle recipe...
