With Valentine’s Day approaching, it’s important to consider how you can utilize your bartending skills to make the holiday unique for friends, family, and paying customers. Whether you are tasked with developing a signature drink for your employer or simply want to impress your loved ones with some unique cocktails, these recipes are sure to delight.
Chocolate lovers will enjoy this sweet and creamy treat! Place six ounces of cold chocolate milk into a highball glass along with two ounces of silver tequila and two ounces of daiquiri mix. Stir well until all of the ingredients are mixed and garnish with a chocolate-dipped strawberry.
If your patrons prefer a tangier beverage, suggest the rasmopolitan, which involves combining one ounce each of citrus vodka, raspberry vodka, and cranberry juice as well as 1/2 ounce each of black raspberry liqueur, lime juice, and simple syrup into an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Mix the ingredients until they are chilled, and strain them into a martini glass with two or three skewered raspberries for a garnish.
Chocolate-Covered Cherry Martini
This decadent treat might just fuel some romantic sparks! Within an ice-filled cocktail shaker, mix 1 1/2 ounces of chocolate vodka, 1 1/2 ounces of cherry vodka, 1/2 ounce of grenadine, one ounce of crème de cacao, one ounce of half-and-half, and a squirt of chocolate syrup. Strain everything into a chilled martini glass and garnish the drink with a maraschino cherry.
For a drink that encourages people to relax and have a good time, mix two ounces of silver tequila, one ounce of strawberry liqueur, one ounce of lime juice, and 1/4 ounce of simple syrup in a shaker containing ice, and pour the liquid into a margarita glass with more ice, adding a wedge of lime on the side.
