A few years ago, my Husband made a comment ” How sexy would it be if I came home from work and you made me a fabulous martini.” It was a bit of insight into a man’s mind. A wife, girlfriend, whipping up cocktails like a master mixologist. Not something simple like a gin and tonic. A cocktail made with thought and interesting tasty ingredients.
I made sure to learn how to make a couple of fabulous, sexy cocktails using some ” manly” spirits like whisky and gin. It has spiced up our dating adventures for sure. Especially when in NYC the average cocktail cost 15-22 dollars. No need for babysitting, spending loads of money. Simply put the child to bed, burn a beautiful scented candle, throw on a sultry playlist and get to making your man and yourself some sexy cocktails.
Last week, I invited a few fabulous ladies over to my house and I curated a nice selection of easy but fabulous cocktails to teach them to make , for their next date night at home. It was such a wonderful night, we also shared personal pointers for creating that ” sexy mood” for an intimate setting in the house. Major drinking, lots of posting pictures on instagram, much laughter , it was good times all around. Below I am posting the cocktail recipes and a few photos.
