I enjoy my free time as an amateur mixologist while being a part time waiter/bartender. My future career could be in adult beverage catering because I love wine and I know my liquor. It’s about time to start planning your dates (mine is going to be on the 12th because we are seeing a concert anyways) and after you get home from dinner, why not finish the party with a good night cap stupor?!
My favorite signature drink is my ‘Pimosa’, which is a mimosa made with pineapple juice, not orange juice, and peach schnapps. I’m tyring to get ready for beach season so I’ll be sticking mostly to vodka tonics (because I hate gin) while recommending recipes to friends for kir royales and coffee liqours. I love pinot grigio, lager and amber beers, and good quality liquor drinks, but I’ve never put together a Valentine’s day drink menu.
Get a Rocks glass with some ice cubes, follow these ingredients into a shaker:
- 1 pour Brandy
- 1 pour white Rum
- 1/2 pour Cointreau
- Splash of sprite
A good martini is a stiff martini. It’s a sexy drink that has visual and olfactory appeal, much like a champagne flute. Throw this in a martini glass with a sugar rim and lime on it:
- 2.5 pours Absolute Vodka
- 1 Pour Cranberry Juice
- Top with Sprite
I love making up new drinks where you don’t have to have a good reason to start drinking early! Grab a champagne flute and start your morning with this:
- Blood OJ
- Pomegranate Juice
- Chilled Cava
