A cosy, at-home cocktail date will give you the chance to impress your Valentine with your witchy mixology talents.
Pro tip: it’s way more fun if you call these drinks “love philters”. We can’t offer any guarantees on the result, however, because that’s not how magic works.
Love Potion #9
Start by rimming the edge of a chilled martini glass in sugar and set aside.
Combine 1 1/2 oz vodka, 1/2 oz peach schnapps, 3 oz fresh pink grapefruit juice and 1 sliced strawberry in an ice-filled shaker. Shake well until cold. Strain into your glass, garnish the rim with a strawberry half and enjoy.
Pour 1 1/2 oz gin, 1/2 oz crème de framboise liqueur, and 1/2 oz freshly squeezed lime juice, into a highball glass filled with ice. Stir and top with 4 oz ginger ale. Garnish with a lime wedge, serve and enjoy.
Between The Sheets
Combine 1 oz cognac, 1 oz light rum, 1 oz triple sec, and 1/4 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice into a shaker with ice and shake well until cold. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. As a final touch, spritz the oils from a flamed orange peel over the top of your drink and toss the peel aside before serving.
