Welcome to a very special edition of our Valentine's Day Series! This week I have brought on a special guest for a slightly naughty article (Valentine's Day is tomorrow after all). Huge thanks go out to The Sip Advisor, an awesome Vancouver-based blogger, for putting together these delicious specialty drinks and giving us all some insight into what each of them might mean for the evening ahead!
While many aren’t really into Valentine’s Day, the Sip Advisor finds it provides a perfect chance to show that special someone just how much you care. But what exactly does your choice of drink on the special day say about your romantic intentions for the evening? Let’s take a look at the options:
Silk Panties with Lace (Shot)
No misconceptions here: Things are going to be short, sweet, and to the point, but pack a hell of a punch. Put on Pony by Ginuwine and get your swerve on. You’re playful, maybe a little dominating, but always satisfying! You might get a little sticky, but it’s all in good fun! In fact, you might enjoy it so much that you’ll keep coming back for more!
Rim glass with Sugar
0.75 oz Raspberry Vodka
0.75 oz Peach Schnapps
Garnish with a Lemon Wedge
Strawberry Sentiment (Cocktail)
Why rush? We have all night! The evening is going well, but you’re going to need ice to cool things down. Always guaranteed to please, you’re the roses, chocolates and candles type. But hey, there’s a reason that we love sticking to the classics!
Rim glass with Salt
1.5 oz Tequila
0.75 oz Cointreau
Top with half Ginger Ale, half Brisk Strawberry-Melon
Garnish with Strawberry Hearts
Naked Lady (Martini)
Particularly from the chocolate/dessert family… let’s skip true dessert and get straight to the fun and games with the liquid variety. You may come on a little strong, but that’s just the desired style! Classy, potent, and elegant, be prepared to be swept off your feet!
1 oz Rum
1 oz Sweet Vermouth
0.5 oz Rakija
Splash of Lemon Juice
Dash of Grenadine
Garnish with Lemon Zest
From Mr. and Mrs. Sip to you and yours, wishing everyone out there a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
