For those of you looking for something on the more sophisticated side you have my apologies. This blog unfortunately mirrors the author (yours truly.) Some of the humor is not for everyone but I liked it and it's my blog so there! My patrons sometimes ask me where I come up with some of this stuff. I am glad to tell them my mind is a lot like Canada. It is sometimes a bit cold, there are a few dark corners, some of it down right confusing and even a bit dirty but there is also a lot of neat stuff up there. So I hope you all enjoy this blog! ... Cheers!

Another Pre-Valentines Day Treat

This weekend is unlike many of the others. Lots of couples looking for that romantic get away and a few guys just trying to WOW a girl long enough to get lucky. Valentines Day although many will say is just a greeting card holiday (which it is) is still and always will be in the hearts and minds of almost every woman and man. Sometimes for completely separate reasons as the woman wants to fall in love many men just want to make it, and there is certainly nothing wrong with that!

Whatever your motive, desire or feelings have in store lets not do the cliched roses, they cost way too much and die way too fast. Don't bother getting her a teddy bear unless she is beneath the age of 12. This year make her a drink she might just ask for another and another all year round and that might just help with the whole falling or making of love process. You just never know. So here is a pretty sweet martini treat just in time for Valentines Day. Cheers and good luck!

The Chocolate Covered Strawberry
2 oz. - Strawberry Vodka
1 oz. - Chocolate Vodka
1 oz. - Godiva Dark Chocolate Liqueur
1/2 oz. - Strawberry Patch Schnapps
Splash - Vanilla Vodka
Drizzle chocolate sauce around the inside of the glass
Rim the glass with chocolate sauce and red sugar*
Shake over ice and strain.
Garnish with a Chocolate covered strawberry. **

* Red Sugar = 2 parts sugar = 1 part Strawberry Jello mix

** Easy way to make a chocolate covered strawberry. In the ice cream section of your super market find hard shell chocolate sauce. Cover the Strawberries half way with the sauce. Make sure you cut a slit up the side of the strawberry to sit on the glass.
