Valentine’s day is slowly approaching…
…which gives you plenty of time to figure out if you will be
planning dinner with your lover, or pulling a Jessica Biel in “Valentine’s Day” and hosting your own I h8 Valentine’s Day party (sure to be a smash hit whichever way you cut it). Either way, cocktails make for a great addition to any surrounding… and, well, considering the very sexy nature of this day – why not indulge and dip into trying some of the sexiest cocktails out there?
If there is a drink that deserves to win the title of sexiest name, it’s gotta be the Menage a Trois.
Just saying it has a way of putting you in the mood while honouring all things French and
risquee glamor (and really, how can you go wrong with those two on your side?). When ordering it out, be sure to indulge and mix your recipe for success accordingly (equal parts swanky bar, you done up in your strikingly sexy best,
and of course a healthy dose of old-fashioned good company).
When enjoying in the comfort of your own boudoir (while taking your time to apply your favorite shade of rouge), mix equal parts chilled (shaken OR stirred) Monin Triple Lime liqueur and Cointreau, and top it off with an oh-so-healthy dose of your favorite Champagne (this is where you pull out your best flutes and toast to being so incredibly fabulous – V day is all about LOVE, especially self love. Practice accordingly).
Shots get the job done swiftly and tastefully… kill those blind date nerves with a shot or two before stepping out! The Slippery Nipple is our V Day pick… easy, sexy, and with an intoxifying twist should you choose to experiment…
