Common Questions About Making a Cupid’s Cocktail
What is a cupid’s cocktail?
A cupid’s cocktail is a alcoholic drink for Valentine’s Day made with strawberry rum, white rum, grenadine, and lemon-lime soda.
What should I do if I don’t have a cocktail shaker?
If you do not have a cocktail shaker, you can use two glasses, one slightly smaller than the other. Pour the ingredients into the larger glass and place the open end of the smaller glass into the second. (I would recommend a plastic cup for the smaller cup.) Make sure to tap the top to ensure there is a seal. Shake lightly and remove the top cup. If the seal seems hard to break, tap the side of the glasses where the seal is formed.
Another alternative for the shaker is to use a cup or jar that has a lid (such as a mason jar).
What gives the drink color?
Grenadine gives the drink color!
How can I garnish this drink?
I suggest putting a strawberry on the rim or serving it with a few maraschino cherries.
What should I do if I can’t find strawberry rum?
If you can’t find strawberry rum, substitute in 1/2 ounce more of white rum and then 1 ounce strawberry puree (made by blending a few strawberries with a bit of water in a blender). If you go the puree route, I suggest straining the puree before putting it into the drink.
Can I make more servings?
Yes! Just scale up the recipe for as many servings as you want!
Can I make a kid-friendly version of this drink?
Absolutely, I would suggest using lemonade instead of the rum for a fun mocktail version.
