Love Potions

By / Wine + Drinks / February 12th, 2013 / 3

Do you need a powerful love potion to convince that special someone to notice your special charms? Or maybe you want to show that friend or lover how much you really appreciate him or her. You’ll definitely want to give these five cocktails a try. These flavourful sippers stir up a mix of unexpected tastes, like cherry-flavoured cola paired with the lovely almond taste of Amaretto, or thick espresso paired with the hazelnut-infused Frangelico.

Here’s an idea: before you dive into the alcohol-based cocktails, start the night off with a non-alcoholic drink. Pour a cup of Bottlegreen’s Spiced Berry “Enjoy Hot” Cordial.
