Have you ever taken one of those “What’s Your Love Style” quizzes?
According to social psychology, there are 6 different types of lovers. According to us, there are only 3 ways of reflecting that in a cocktail… Okay, okay, maybe we could have come up with something for “Needy” or “Ball Buster,” but we decided to quit while we were ahead with “Sexy,” “Sweet” and “Spicy.” Those 3 sounded much better tasting! (All recipes use the Laughing Glass Pomegranate Margarita and each recipe serves 1 so, obviously, double these for Valentine’s Day!) SEXY Basil Watermelon Margarita (middle picture) In a cocktail shaker, add ½ cup fresh watermelon 4-5 large basil leaves *muddle energetically* Add 4 oz of Laughing Glass Pomegranate Margarita Shake, strain into a sexy martini glass, and garnish with basil leaves SWEET Mandarin Sorbet Margarita (pictured on left) 3 oz Laughing Glass Pomegranate Margarita 2 oz prosecco or champagne 1 oz fresh mandarin or tangerine juice HERE’S THE BEST PART, use a melon baller to create 3-5 “ice cubes” of orange sherbet. Let the sherbet melt a bit before serving – it makes a lovely sweet orange creamy topping and tastes delish. Sweets for the sweet! SPICY Ginger Pomegranate Margarita (pictured on right) In a cocktail shaker, add 1 finger of peeled ginger, sliced into small bits 5 small chunks of fresh lemongrass ¼ lime 1/3 Thai red chili or jalepeno pepper *muddle enthusiastically* Add 5 oz Laughing Glass Pomegranate Margarita (tastes great with Original flavor too!) Shake, strain over ice, garnish with chili or jalepeno and lemongrass stalk. WORD TO THE WISE: Thai red chilies are my preference but they are extremely spicy, please use caution and watch those seeds!
