Cocktail of the Week: Queen of Hearts

Queen Bee never misses an opportunity to mix up a new cocktail. So why would Valentine's Day be any exception? This year, she created the Queen of Hearts — a delightful mixture of vodka, sake, cranberry and peach. The combination is a little bit sweet and deliciously creamy — plus, its beautiful light pink color is perfect for the occasion!


  • 2 oz. Cherry Vodka
  • 1.5 oz. Nigori Sake
  • 0.5 oz. Cranberry Juice
  • 1 oz. Peach Puree
  • 1 0z. Simple Syrup
  • 1 oz Heavy Cream


  1. Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker, top with ice and shake until chilled.
  2. Double strain into a cocktail glass and enjoy!

Sure, a glass of wine or a beer is a nice way to unwind – but every now and then, you deserve a happy hour that's a little more...hmmm. What's the word? Refined! Kelly Sparks of Queen Bee Mixology is graciously sharing a new cocktail with us every week, just in time for Happy Hour.
