Cocktail(s) of The Month – February

A classic way to begin the evening is with champagne perhaps with a blush of Pom liqueur or Cassis with two raspberries swimming in the bottom of the glass or try something different.
A Valentine Aperitif ~
A Touch of Venus

Refreshing, light, would also look nice with a strawberry on the rim.


3 oz. dry white wine
1 oz. Limoncello (sweet lemon liqueur, I keep it in the freezer-yum!)
1/2 tsp. amaretto
1/2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
Lemon spiral, garnish


Add liquids to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake for five seconds and strain into a large wine goblet.

Place lemon spiral garnish on top, and declare: “Love’s gentle spring doth always fresh remain.” — Shakespeare, Venus and Adonis

Chocolate Covered Raspberry


Dessert in a glass.




Raspberry vodka
Vanilla vodka
Light Creme de Coco
Dark Creme de Coco
White chocolate liqueur (or cream)
Fresh raspberries
Chocolate syrup


Add ice to mixer. Pour raspberry vodka (2 count). Pour vanilla vodka (1 count). Add both light and dark Creme de Coco (3 count). Add a good splash of white chocolate liqueur. Add small splash of raspberry liqueur and shake.

Drizzle chocolate syrup in martini glass. Drop 1-3 fresh raspberries in glass and add more chocolate syrup. Pour mixture in glass.

    Sending you a smile,


  6. Love the chocolate one! I feel like it right now actually 🙂

  7. Everything sounds wonderful. I love to try and fix different cocktails. I make a ginger drop martini that I think if fabulous.

  8. I love what Pink Champagne said–Is it bad to crave both? They both equally sound delicious to me! Love the first one though–I bet I could drink a few of those! Very refreshing.
    It just started snowing again, so I have my work cut out for me in a few hours. Not suppose to stop until late tomorrow night. Wish I had the ingredients for your cocktails!!

  9. WOW! they sound yummy. xoxo


  10. Limoncello? What a great idea to keep it in the freezer. I love that stuff–the Mister and I make a lemonade with that, vodka, and real lemonade, and when you are sipping that you do not care how hot it is!

  11. That chocolate covered raspberry looks heavenly!!!! I think I will skip the hot cup of tea tonight and make one of these!

  12. yummy touch of venus — gotta have one of those for sure.
