Passionate Kisses Sparkling Cocktail by WickedGoodKitchen.com ~ Fun rum-based sparkling cocktail with passion fruit syrup for Valentine’s Day! A Valentine’s Day Cocktail for You!

In honor of Valentine’s Day, I created a special rum-based sparkling cocktail with passion fruit syrup to celebrate the holiday, Passionate Kisses Sparkling Cocktail. The name “Passionate Kisses” came immediately to my mind and I could hear the lovely Mary Chapin Carpenter’s sweet country ballad playing in my head. I kept singing, “Passionate kisses, whoa oh oh…” over and over again. I couldn’t stop!

Incidentally, the song garnered Mary a Grammy Award in 1994 for Best Country Vocal Performance, Female. Well deserved, indeed. Here’s a link to a YouTube video of “Passionate Kisses” for your listening and viewing pleasure as you dream about creating this cocktail for you and your love this Valentine’s Day.

“Passionate Kisses” Song Lyrics
 
Is it too much to ask
I want a comfortable bed that won’t hurt my back
Food to fill me up
And warm clothes and all that stuff
Shouldn’t I have this
Shouldn’t I have this
Shouldn’t I have all of this, and
 
Passionate kisses
Passionate kisses, whoa oh oh
Passionate kisses from you
 
Is it too much to demand
I want a full house and a rock and roll band
Pens that won’t run out of ink
And cool quiet and time to think
Shouldn’t I have this
Shouldn’t I have this
Shouldn’t I have all of this, and
 
Passionate kisses
Passionate kisses, whoa oh oh
Passionate kisses from you
 
Do I want too much
Am I going overboard to want that touch
I shout it out to the night
“Give me what I deserve, ’cause it’s my right”
Shouldn’t I have this (shouldn’t I)
Shouldn’t I have this (shouldn’t I)
Shouldn’t I have all of this, and
 
Passionate kisses
Passionate kisses, whoa oh oh
Passionate kisses from you
Passionate kisses
Passionate kisses, whoa oh oh
Passionate kisses from you

Upon concocting this celebratory sipper, Passionate Kisses Sparkling Cocktail, I knew that I could rely on Fizz 56, a sparkling red wine, to provide the necessary fizz expected in such a potion. Along with the bubbles, Fizz 56 delivers all the fruity flavor notes that Asti brings making an especially jovial Valentine’s Day sparkling cocktail. And, the color? Fizz 56 kicks up the truly passionate peachy-pink hue of this cocktail making it a feast for the eyes as well. Isn’t that what celebrating St. Valentine’s Day is all about? Tickling our senses? We think so here at Wicked Good Kitchen!
