The Perfect Valentine's Day Cocktail

In my opinion, the way to anyone's heart is through a well-balanced cocktail.  I'm sharing two of my favorite Valentine's cocktails.  Both are very different, but easy to make...you'll thank me later!  

This is the cocktail for the people who absolutely must drink something pink on Valentine's.  Cupid's Arrow is slightly sweet and topped with sparkling Rosé, it'll definitely hit the spot.  

Cupid's Arrow
Ingredients
1 1/2 oz Mango Rum

3/4 oz Rhuby Liqueur
Sparkling Ros
é

Directions
Shake, strain and top with sparkling Ros
é.


My White Cashmere is more than just a tasty drink.  This cocktail is full of properties that will naturally, well...get you in the Valentine's mood.  It's better than Fifty Shades of Grey.  The flavors of vanilla vodka, espresso, Somrus Indian liqueur and ginger liqueur really work well together.  And I know what you're thinking; "what's so special about those ingredients?"  Well, here's the breakdown:

Coffee: The scent was found to be a major turn on for women. Coffee's hefty dose of caffeine boosts heart rate and increases blood flow, while its alkaloids can help to maintain sexual performance while also increasing stamina.

Cardamom: Certain cultures deem it a powerful aphrodisiac and also claim it is beneficial in treating impotence. It is high in cineole, which can increase blood flow in areas where it is applied.
