Cocktails for Two

February 2, 2010

Valentine’s is just twelve days away Y’all.  I hope you have begun to make plans and haven’t put this off to the last minute like you did last year.  Dinner in; dinner out.  Where, what, how….aaggghhhh!

Relax.  Don’t get yourself all bent out of shape.  All your Beau or Belle is looking for is a little something special without the TV going and the phone turned off (better yet, leave the damn thing at home.)

If you are planning a nice dinner at home, here are a couple of drinks to shake up. 

BASIL LEMON DROP

3 oz Citrus vodka

1 oz limoncello

1 oz amaretto (get the real stuff)

1 honey

1 oz fresh lemon juice

8 basil leaves

Muddle the basil lemon juice and honey, add the booze and shake.  Strain into two chilled cocktail glasses and garnish with a basil leaf and lemon wheel.

SWEET SURRENDER  (Break out your heart-shaped ice cubes here)

3 oz Gold Rum

2 oz raspberry liqueur

6 oz Cranberry Juice

Shake all ingredients and strain into ice filled old-fashioned glass.  Garnish with raspberries.

 

More to come!!

    That is the idea: to have good but approachable drinks to be made at home.

    More to come!

    Chris
