I woke up early this morning feeling like a kid on Christmas morning. Last night my friend Doug, who works for Lucas Bols, gave me a bottle of Cassis Foam. Many of you may be wondering, what in the heck is Cassis Foam? Aside from being liquid joy in a bottle, it enhances the creative potential of Bols Liqueurs, which are, in my opinion, some of the best on the market. The Bols Foam bottle transforms the liqueur inside into instant foam and truly creates magic for cocktails, coffee drinks and desserts. Lucas Bols is the first and only company in the world to introduce instant alcoholic foam from the bottle. This is a must have for any bar or anyone passionate about cocktails. Available currently in Blue, Amaretto and Cassis, the Bols Foam line is quickly becoming the hottest thing in the cocktail world.

In honor of Valentine’s Day, I am featuring their Amour Rose, which I have renamed the “Bleeding Heart” because of the look of the foam as it trickles from the top to the bottom of the glass.
To make this unique cocktail, you need Tequila Rose, Bols Yogurt, Bols Cassis Foam and lemon juice. I am a huge fan of Bols Yogurt and have been using it since my good friend Doug introduced me to it last summer. Made from real fresh yogurt, it has a unique sweet and sour taste that is combined with a rich and smooth texture. It mixes perfectly with fresh fruit, fruit juices, soft drinks and other Bols liqueurs. I will be featuring some cocktails in the future made with Bols Yogurt.
In a shaker filled with ice, add 1 1/2 oz each of Tequila Rose and Bols Yogurt, and then add about a teaspoon of fresh lemon juice. Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled martini glass. Top with about two pumps of Cassis Foam and enjoy!
