According to Roman legend, there was a dude named Valentine serving as priest in the third century. After the Pope told him it was better for young men to fight in war instead of getting married, Saint Valentine would secretly marry young lovers. When he was discovered, the pope sentenced him to death.
This guy wasn’t the only legendary ‘St. Valentine’ that was beheaded or sent to jail for committing crimes of love. Almost every story ends with a priest named Valentine being martyred for encouraging love.
Saint Valentine, we made this cocktail for you. It sounds like you need a stiff pour of tequila to continue your passionate love crimes.
We paired Ana Maria Rosa Tequila with Iconic Prickly Pear Sour to create this pink margarita for Saint Valentine. New on the block, this rosy tequila is finished with Cabernet Sauvignon from the Valle de Guadalupe. Ana Maria Tequila is a symphony of blossoming violets and fresh berries making it perfect for this V-Day cocktail.
The strawberry-like Prickly Pear Sour plays perfectly with the berry notes of Ana Maria Tequila and transforms this margarita into a pink dream. A rather simple recipe, you can combine these two ingredients to get a fresh #PinkDrink to sip this February 14th. And be sure to toast our guy, Saint Valentine who put his heart on the line for love.
