So today, we’re going to look at some examples of delicious and easy-to-make cocktails that will help you win your date’s heart.
Top Romantic Night Drinks
If you have planned a romantic date and want to make a light cocktail perfect for the light and breezy atmosphere of your evening, here are two of the best options.
– “Champagne Cocktail”
Champagne is an indispensable ingredient in any romantic cocktail. In addition, it’s easy to make and perfect for those who like sweet and sour drinks. You’ll need 1 sugar cube, a couple of shots of Angostura, and dry champagne to your liking. Just place a sugar cube in an iced champagne flute and drizzle with Angostura. Then fill the glass with champagne. This drink will be a great addition to the romantic atmosphere of your evening.
– “Good Night Kiss “
This cocktail is almost identical to the previous one but is even more delicate and sweet, just like a good night kiss! You’ll need 1 sugar cube, 1 dash of Angostura Bitters, any dry champagne you prefer, and 3 cl of Campari. Again, place a sugar cube in a champagne flute and drizzle generously with Angostura. Top up with dry champagne, leaving enough space to finish with the Campari. Treat your loved one with this cocktail and see how fast it hits the right spot in their heart.
Best Choices for a Casual Date
Imagine that you are lying on the couch, not knowing how to pass the evening, and suddenly the thought occurs to you, “How can I meet mature ladies near me and invite one to my place?” You open a mature dating site, not even hoping for luck, but you meet the very mature woman you’ve been dreaming of almost immediately.
Judging by the pictures in her dating profile, she’s extremely hot, lives in your neighborhood, and, most importantly, wants to meet for a hookup asap. You don’t want to lose that chance! But to make your hookup more enjoyable, you must prepare drinks that will please her and loosen you both up. The following two cocktails are as naughty as they are delicious.
– “French Kiss”
Rosé considered very feminine for a reason. Many mature women love it both single and in cocktails. To prepare this cocktail, you need: 3 cl gin, 2 cl St. Germain Liqueur, 1 cl Aperol, 1 cl freshly squeezed lemon juice, and, of course, Rosé champagne. Add all ingredients except the champagne to a cocktail shaker filled with ice cubes and shake vigorously. Strain into a champagne coupe. Then carefully top up with champagne.
At the right moment, look her deep into the eyes, saying, “How about a French kiss?” and hand the cocktail with a flirty smile. She won’t be able to resist the tension!
– “Bitter Hearts Know Better”
Some might call this cocktail vulgar, but that’s exactly what we need, right? You’ll need 6 cl Hibiscus gin (e.g., Siderit), 3 cl freshly squeezed lime juice, 2 cl Sirop de Gomme (or similar sugar syrup), 1.5 cl Lo-Fi Gentian Amaro or Campari or Aperol.
Place some sugar on a small flat plate (add pink food coloring if you have any). Wet the rim of a champagne coupe with a lime wedge and then dab in the sugar, creating a fine sugar rim. Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker filled with ice cubes and shake vigorously, then strain into the glass.
It’s a sweet cocktail with a hint of sourness that will add a spark of passion to the mood of your evening.
