Heart-shaped boxes and flowers are great, but nothing shows you care for someone more than fixing them a good drink that hits just the right spot. What spot that is, we’ll leave to your imagination ;)
So take notes, you Romeos and Juliets, because we have a sure path to your significant other’s heart. Cocktails. We mixed flavorful Spirits with sugar, spice, and everything nice to bring you special Valentine’s love potions and help you get intoxicated with each other.
1. Between the Sheets
Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and the pressure is on. But don’t worry. We have something extra for you. Enter Frérot Extra
, a Flaviar Original Cognac
from Grande Champagne aged for decades and carefully blended into the most sophisticated Hors d’Age Spirit
. We bet its rich and complex characters will enchant your and your loved one’s palate.
*Makes two cocktails
2 oz. White Rum
2 oz. Orange Liqueur (like Triple Sec or Cointreau)
0.5 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into coupe glasses. Garnish with a flamed orange peel. Enjoy before play.
2. Tropical Romance
Pour your love out with an island-hopping sipping Rum
that captures the mouthwatering flavors from tropical countries in every precious drop. We created Larga Vida
for people who are crazy for life, who embrace and appreciate all aspects of it. And here’s how you make a tropical treat in a glass
for your S.O.
1 bar spoon Simple Syrup
2 dashes Angostura Bitters
2 dashes Chocolate Bitters
Stir all ingredients together over ice. Strain into a rocks glass over a large ice cube. Enjoy it while it lasts.
3. Tainted Love
If you’re looking to add some spice to the usual chocolate-flowers-dinner combo, make sure to stock your home bar with Corn Trooper
Corn Trooper United Craft Bourbon is a glorious blend of seven Straight Bourbons from seven states, a union of diverse wild Spirits that come together for something greater than their sum. Corn Trooper is designed for everyone who loves Bourbon and wants to try something new and genuinely American.
It’s also a perfect addition to this love-themed holiday. We all agree that chocolate is fantastic, but combine it with Bourbon and get a cocktail that screams love
1 oz. Campari
1 oz. Sweet Vermouth
Stir all ingredients over ice until chilled. Strain into a rocks glass over a large ice cube. Garnish with an orange peel. Taint your sweet love with it.
4. Peat’s Treat (Partner of a Peat)
The love potion that will light the way to their heart is Son of a Peat Batch 03: The Redeemer
. It’s as authentic as they come: no added color and non-chill filtered
—hand-blended, hand-bottled, hand-sealed, and hand-labeled. The twelve-Whisky blend combines the magic of Islay, Speyside, the Islands, and the Highlands in one diabolical Spirit that 100% gives ya the lovey-dovey feels
. With smoke!
Drink neat or on the rocks and pair the peaty treat with a piece of dark chocolate. Enjoy in pairs and swing.
5. Sephina 75
Sephina is a mix of VSOP cognac and fortified wine, which made it perfect for this twist on the classic French 75.
1 oz Sephina
½ oz lemon juice
½ oz simple syrup
3 oz champagne
In a cocktail shaker with ice, combine all ingredients except for champagne. Shake until chilled, strain into a glass, top with champagne and enjoy!
Roses are red, violets are blue, we’re in love with these cocktails, and you can be too!
