Come on kids – we all know what Valentine’s Day is really about. No, not that. Whether you’re feeling a bit melancholy or partying it up with your significant other, it’s all about that chowing down some quality booze.
But away with your beer and vodka-lemonade – there’s so much more to be enjoyed when you let your creative juices flow. Here’s our roundup of red & pink things you could be putting in your mouth/ ingesting this week. Now, without further ado…
Whiskey, tomato juice, Tabasco, lemon & lime, Worcestershire sauce, salt & pepper
Bloody Mary’s sharper, edgier cousin. Picture dark mascara and bright red lipstick (smudged obviously).
Shot of whiskey, chilli powder, Tabasco
The clue is in the name; a shot of fire straight from Satan’s mouth/other appendage, essentially.
Whiskey, white wine, red wine, cherries
Not really for the fainthearted, or for moralistic puritans who ‘don’t think red and white wines are same thing’.
GINGER ZINGER SUPREME
Whiskey, ginger, pink lemonade, lemon, salt & pepper
We’re totally not sorry for the name.
Apple juice, whiskey, sprite, sprinkle of cinnamon
Kind of like apple-pie, if you’ve never tried apple-pie.
SAFA7 EL MAADI
Raspberry vodka, cranberry juice, lemon sprite, lemon ice-cubes
The unexpected serial stabber of drinks favours cute girls in tight jeans about to go home.
SEX ON THE NILE
Vanilla vodka, cranberry juice, grape juice, orange juice
Not dissimilar to the popular Sex on the Beach, this is best served with a crocodile and some Sha3bi music.
Vodka, whiskey, rum, on the rocks
Violence is Bad. Vodka, whiskey and rum in one glass is good.
Vodka, whiskey, strawberry liqueur, grenadine
Known in some regions of the world as the G-String. Try ordering a kulotte in a bar.
