A great drink with the one you love is a perfect way to celebrate Valentine's Day. Even though I think Valentine's Day is a Hallmark holiday, Ms. Cocktail Den likes it so that's what counts. After combing through the Den archives for a drink to make her, I found these 10 themed cocktails. Enjoy!
Intense Ginger Love -- rum, Barrow's Intense ginger liqueur, strawberries, and sparkling wine or champagne. Lovely and intense.
Passion -- tequila, Cointreau or other triple sec, cranberry juice, and lime juice. It will blind you (metaphorically) with ... you know.
Champagne Cocktail -- sparkling wine or champagne, sugar, and Angostura bitters. Who says you only can drink this on New Year's Eve?
Naked and Famous -- mezcal, yellow Chartreuse, Aperol, and lime juice. This drink combines the fun of these two things without the risk of ending up on the Internet forever.
Between The Sheets -- rum, brandy, Cointreau or other triple sec, and lemon juice. Have enough of these and the two of you might end up there.
Hanky Panky -- gin, sweet vermouth, and Fernet Branca. Even though the original meaning of the phrase had nothing to do with sex, this is one sexy drink.
Widow's Kiss -- apple brandy, yellow Chartreuse, Benedictine DOM, and Angostura bitters. She loved once, and your liver will love her (try saying that 10 times fast).
Part-Time Lover -- tequila, Aperol, elderflower liqueur or super simple syrup, lemon juice, and Angostura bitters. The name may say part time, but the drink is full time delicious.
