Love Is In The Drink....

The month of February always brings out the best in us, thanks to Hallmark....and of course Bartender2Go, is no exception! We seem to come up with some of our greatest creations during the month of February. Not sure if it's the love that's in the air, Super Bowl withdrawal or the sweet memories of our past tasty love drinks, but well, we just LOVE the month of February! Incase you forgot to buy roses, try this perfect creation for two. Light a candle and turn, off the lights....
Love is holding on line two!!!

Love Potion #9

3 oz gin
1 oz rosebud tea
1 T. rose syrup
fresh lemon juice
Moet et Chandon Champagne
2 chilled martini glasses
Float rose petal on surface

We know what you are thinking. Where am I going to find Rose syrup??? Fret not. If you planned ahead of time, you can find it on Amazon or at an organic market. Trust us, you want this to make the drink sweeter. If you are adventurous, you can try to make your own, but don't blame us if you burn the sugar!!! To make your own rose syrup, boil water, 3 cups of granulated sugar & rinsed fresh red rose petals or rose hips in water. Pour into a squeezable bottle once the temp cools.

Pour all of the ingredients, EXCEPT the champagne, in a martini shaker filled with ice. Pour into chilled martini glass, leaving room at the top for the champagne. Top with champagne, and garnish with red rose petal.

Cheers to love...

6 More Weeks Of Warm Drinks...

So last week, the little fat rodent groundhog, affectionately known as Punxsutawney Phil, predicted 6 more weeks of winter. And, well we here in the DMV are quite over the 16 inch+ snow blizzards. This weekend, while on lockdown from the latest blizzard, we had a chance to work in the lab on some nice, warm and sexy drinks, to get you through the next 5 weeks of winter. Warm up with us!!!

Hot Caramel-Apple

1 oz. Butter schnapps Liqueur
1 oz Rum
5 oz Hot Apple Cider

Whether you make your cider from scratch or use a pre-made brand, such as Trader Joe's spiced apple cider, we love to warm up with this tasty drink. We get a few vitamins, and warm toes! Mix all of the ingredients in your favorite mug, and sing off-key tunes 'round the fireplace.

B2Go Hot Toddy

5 oz Hot Tea
2 oz Whiskey
1 T. Honey
Fighting off a cold, or sore throat? Need a reason to spike your tea? Our hot toddy is the perfect solution. The lemon and honey will have you flying like a kite....or is that the whiskey? Either way, it's the perfect excuse for spiking tea....shhhh. Don't tell the Brits.
