10 Valentine Cocktails at Metro Phoenix Restaurants
Valentine's Day is approaching and to get you in the lovey-dovey mood, Chow Bella has picked out ten local love potions around the Valley. Try a few or try them all, just be sure not to leave an impromptu message on your ex's phone -- after all,
SASSI alcohol love makes us do crazy things.
SASSI - Amore Smooch- $16
The Amore Smooch is by far SASSI's most seductive cocktail. Godiva White liqueur, Svedka Cherry Vodka, and Crème de Cacao are served in a stemless martini glass filled with crushed ice and 2 fresh rose petals, then garnished with 3 Svedka Cherry Vodka-infused cherries, half dipped in chocolate. Amore Smooch? Try, Amore Full-On Make Out Session.
Blue Hound Kitchen & Cocktails - First Impression $10
Blue Hound Kitchen & Cocktails
This First Impression is everything -- literally, the drink contains chamomile-infused Ketel One Vodka, fresh lemon juice, Dolin Blanc Dry Vermouth, Rothman & Winter Orchard Apricot Liqueur and house-made grenadine. (Phew.) Sometimes the first step to making a memorable night is with a memorable drink (coincidentally, too many memorable drinks is also the first step to forgetting said night, so be careful).
Lustre Bar - Sailing Solo $6 (on Valentine's Day)
Upstairs at the Hotel Palomar, the Lustre Bar has prepared something special for all the single ladies (and gentlemen). The Sailing Solo is a consolation prize of Sailor Jerry spiced rum, fresh squeezed lime, and pomegranate juice. Toast your fell stag patron at the bar and take comfort in the fact that being single means not having to share your cocktail with anyone.
Searsucker - Peach Passion $14
Searsucker's Peach Passion is a sweet serving of house-made passion fruit and peach puree, Russian Standard vodka, and Orchard Peach liquor. Topped with a proseco float and garnished with a fresh strawberry, this cocktail should be ordered for someone you're keen on... peachy keen, that is. (Don't say that.)
