Valentine’s Day is all about red and hearts and romance. If you gave your significant other a card, a kiss, a jewel or some chocolate, top it with a great cocktail for maximum effect. Go easy on them, though – nobody wants a Valentine’s Day hangover!

The Chocolate Kiss

The Chocolate Kiss 1 ½ oz. Van Gogh Dutch chocolate vodka
½ oz. fresh lemon juice
½ oz. fresh orange juice
½ oz. ginger liqueur
Splash of simple syrup
1 strawberry, trimmed and sliced in half

Mix the strawberry with the juices of the orange and the lemon. Add the ice and the remaining ingredients, shake well and stir into a Martini glass. A pinch of ground cinnamon goes on top – just for colour. Decorate the glass with half a strawberry.

Cali Be Mine

Cali Be Mine 1 ½ oz. Caliche Rum
½ oz. Bianco Vermouth
2 Fresh Ginger Wheels
2 Dashes Angostura bitters
Ginger Sliver for garnish

Mix the gigner to a puree in a cocktail shaker. Add the rest of the ingredients and shake well until it chills thoroughly. Serve in a rocks glass, on the rocks – of course. Use the gigner sliver for decoration.

French Martini

rench Martini 2 ounce Vodka
1/2 ounce Raspberry Liqueur
1-1/2 ounce Pineapple Juice

Put all your ingredients in a mixing glass and top with ice. Shake well and strain it in a martini glass. It looks incredible with some raspberries or strawberries on the top.

Agave Kiss

Agave Kiss

Sweet and sensual, this cocktail is velvety and pleasurable to your mouth and – given the tequile – a real buzz to your brain.

Ingredients:
2 oz. Tequila
1 oz. White Crème de Cacao
1 oz. Double cream
1 oz. Chambord
White chocolate flakes
Raspberries for decoration

Put the tequila, the white Crème de Cacao, the double cream and the Chambord (a French liqueur with vanilla, blackberries and honey) in the shaker, fill with ice and shake thoroughly. Pour the resulting liquid in a chilled glass rimmed with white chocolate flakes.  Add the speared raspberries on top of the glass. Instant Valentine’s Day butterflies!

Rossini

Rossini Strawberries and champagne, the perfect combo for a perfect Valentine’s Day.

1 bottle of champagne or Prosecco
1/3 cup crushed frozen strawberries

Prosecco is a better choice for this cocktail. Crush the frozen strawberries (use a blender). Add about a tablespoon of the crushed strawberries to the bottom of a classic Champagne glass and pour the champagne or prosecco on top. Light the fire in the fireplace, put on some Barry White and enjoy.
