My Go-To Cocktail: Love Potion
Anyone who knows me would know that I love to entertain. I think I got it from my parents. There’s just something so special about hosting people and making memories in my home. If you run in my circle, part of those memories will probably come with a cocktail or two… it just loosens everyone up and get’s the good vibes going!
When I’m making the drinks, it also has to be cocktail-menu worthy… no two ingredient action in my house. I’m no bartender, but I like to dabble (lol). My dad, the king of cocktail creations, taught me everything I know… including this one. My favorite, light, refreshing, DELICIOUS, and always a fan-favorite in the house.
In the family we just call this, “Dad’s Grapefruit Draaaank,” but since it’s almost Valentine’s Day, it’s kinda pink-ish, and I’ve adapted the recipe slightly, I’ve renamed this delicious cocktail “Love Potion.”
I hope you enjoy my Love Potion Recipe, and kids, please drink responsibly.
And by kids, I mean legal adults.
Here’s What You’ll Need
- Club Soda
- St Germain (elderflower liqueur)
- Grapefruit Vodka (I prefer Deep Eddy’s Ruby Red)
- Some Lime
Here’s What You Do
- Pour 2 shots of grapefruit vodka over ice
- Add 1-2 shots of St Germain to taste. I happen to love the taste so I usually pour a full 2 shots.
- Fill the rest of your cocktail glass with Club Soda
- Stir ferociously
- Garnish with a lime slice or two
And that’s all folks!
Try it out and let me know by HOW much this has become your new favorite drink! So simple, but tastes so fancy! I hope you enjoy this one as much as we do <3
