We know Valentine’s Day can be a day tough one – whether you’re trying to impress a special someone, are having a night with friends to celebrate singledom, or cosying up in your bath with some bubbles and a book, a glass of something good won’t go unnoticed. This year, why not try your hands at making something a little different, with these cocktails from Absolut Elyx. According to Absolut, the Elyx is like ‘liquid silk’ – It is made from winter wheat that is grown on the Råbelöf estate in Southern Sweden, and manually distilled through a copper column that maximise its’ purity.
In collaboration with Absolut Elyx’s Global Brand Ambassador, Gareth Evans, we’ve brought you a selection of cocktails that are full of love, vodka and a whole host of exciting flavours. Enjoy!
