Whether you want to mix these up at home or stop by and have them served to you fireside at the Lodge Lounge, we have three cocktails full of flavor and poured with love. From a tart champagne drink to a chocolate martini, and even a little tequila option—there’s something for everyone!
I’ve had vodka in my champagne, but never tequila. This unique cocktail provides the perfect balance between sweet and tart. The added bit of fizz makes it festive and the blush color makes it perfect for Valentine’s Day!
1/2 oz Camarena Silver Tequila
1/2 oz Blackberry Brandy
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Grenadine
Brut champagne of choice
Combine all but the champagne in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake to blend and chill before straining into your champagne flute. Top with 2 1/2 oz of bubbly.
How about drinks for dessert? This chocolate martini is so delicious, you may forget there’s alcohol in it. Bartenders at the Lodge Lounge serve their version with raspberries but sticking with our Valentine’s Day theme, you could also use strawberries or even a slice of pomegranate.
1 1/2oz Van Gogh Dutch Chocolate Vodka
1 oz Chambord
1/2 oz Godiva Chocolate Liqueur
1 oz cream
Combine in a cocktail shaker with ice and strain into a martini glass. Top with chocolate shavings and garnish with raspberries.
BLOOD ORANGE SUNRISE
This drink reminds me of a cross between a screwdriver and a margarita. The grenadine adds a splash of color and a touch of sweetness.
Fill stemmed water/margarita glass with ice. Pour over the tequila, add Solerno, top with orange juice. Slowly add the grenadine. Garnish with an orange wedge and cherry.
Remember, these are all brand new for February and available inside the Lodge Lounge. Stop by and make it a date night!
