OLD FASHIONED ROMANCE

First up is the Old Fashioned Romance. Much like the cocktail it’s based off, it’s a simple, yet delicious drink. Easy enough to whip up if you’re also juggling cooking dinner for two!

Old Fashioned Romance

    RECIPE

    INSTRUCTIONS

    • Add 1-3 large pieces of ice and stir for 20 seconds

    CLOVER CLUB

    Next up is the Clover Club, a classic from the prohibition era. If you want to instill a little nostalgia this Valentine’s Day, this is the cocktail to make. The finished drink is a beautiful red. Served in a coupe, some might even describe it as sexy. 

    RecipE 

    Instructions

    • Add ingredients to a shaker tin and shake to break up the egg white
    • Add ice and shake until chilled
    • Double strain into a coupe
    • Garnish with raspberries

    ❸ Dos Besitos

    It would be crazy not to add the Dos Besitos to this list. Spanish for Two Kisses this drink was created by the master bartender Sother Teague while he was at Death and Co. The Dos Besitos utilizes two styles of tequila for a more complex pineapple and grenadine sour. This cocktail probably wasn’t intended to be for Valentine’s Day, but given the name and the two tequilas, there is something romantic about it!

    Recipe 

    • ¼ oz Real Grenadine
    • 1 oz blanco tequila
    • 1 oz reposado tequila
    • ¾ oz pineapple juice
    • ½ oz lime juice

    Instructions

    • Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker
    • Add ice and shake hard for 20 seconds
    • Strain into a chilled cocktail glass
    • Garnish with pineapple wedge

    ❹ Suburbon

    If you’re interested in an after dinner cocktail, the Suburbon is a delicious choice. It has cream, egg white, and bourbon in it along with Fiery Ginger Syrup to spice things up. It’s a gorgeous drink, and sure to be a real pleaser for your special someone.
