Cocktails for Two
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 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!!
