Love is in the Air.....


Awww yeah...it's that time of year again. Time for a little lovin'. You want to make your special friend a little dinner, bring on a little romance and dazzle them with a sexy, saucy cocktail. Well never fear you little love bunnies. I've got a few tricks up my sleeve that will have them eating out of your hand and begging for more.

This drink will make your date giggle like a school girl (which might be a little creepy if your a husky male.) I can't resist the name or champagne.

Pink Flirtini
1 oz.  Raspberry Vodka
2 oz. Champagne
2 oz. Pineapple Juice
Combine vodka, Champagne, and pineapple juice in a highball or collins glass filled with ice.

Say you're having trouble even GETTING a date. Well, mix this one up at your next party and you are guaranteed a little smooching under the moonlight.

Love Potion #9
1 oz strawberry, vanilla or clear vodka
1/2 oz white crème de cacao
1/2 cup ice
scoop of vanilla ice cream
Pour the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. If the mix is too thick, add berries or milk; too thin, add ice or ice cream.

So, you've won them over and wedding bells are ringing. What a better way to celebrate than with a little cake.  (For the record-this sounds a little vile to me, but  I'm sure someone out there will love it-they say it taste like wedding cake-I'll take their word for it.)

Wedding Cake Cocktail
3/4 oz gin
3/4 oz Amaretto
1/4 oz orange juice
1/4 oz pineapple juice
1/4 oz cream
Blend ingredients with ice, and serve in a highball glass. 

 Now, aren't you feeling all warm and fuzzy on the inside? That's not love my friends, that the alcohol talking to you. So, get your liquid courage, tell that special someone how much you love them and enjoy cupid's arrow hitting ya in the tocks!  Bottoms up~
