Valentine’s Day Cocktails Edition:
So, Valentine’s is an interesting holiday, you’d be hard-pressed to find another day so filled with the perfect amounts of love, heartache, loneliness bitterness, and the need to have single-gal dates with other single-gals. For the most part, I could care less about V-day besides wanting to have my nails blood red, and sporting some crimson duds, but alas, to conjure up the inner romantic in us all, we should drink. Heavily. On Valentine’s Day. YES!
This is the perfect way to spend America’s 2nd Least Favorite Holiday (I totally disagree with #1 btw), because it appeals to every relational status possible. Single? Married? Dating? It all works.
I’ve created a list of the perfect cocktail to cheers with this Valentine’s Day:
“Single and Hating It”: Your perfect drink is The Black Velvet. It will very much remind you of your cold, dying black heart. Drink up!
The Black Velvet:
- Guinness Stout
Fill your Collins glass halfway with guinness, fill the rest of the glass with champagne and lightly stir.
“Dating and Hating It”: Your perfect drink is called The DGAF.
Pour heavily and drink up quickly.
“Happily in Love”: Your perfect drink is The Elderfashion. A little bit light, a little bit serious.
- 2 Parts Bourbon
- 1/2 Part St. Germaine
- 2 dashes Angostura Bitters
- Orange peel garnish
Stir all your ingredients, add ice, and stir again. Seductively caress your rim with the orange zest and be all romantic-like.
“Happy and Single”: Your drink is…Tequila shots. Enjoy.
- Shot Glass
- A bag to re-gather your dignity after all is lost.
Cheers and happy or hateful Valentine’s Day y’all,
