Admittedly, I harp a lot on sweet cocktails and spirits. I don’t have an overly active sweet tooth, so while many people reasonably lean towards drinks that mask the flavor of alcohol with sugar, I reach for something more on the bitter and boozy side—a drink that really shows off whatever alcohol is being used. However, in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, I have decided that it is only right to provide you with a list of spirits that most stereotypically defines Valentine’s Day, i.e., liqueurs.
To the untrained eye, these liqueurs may not all come across as “sexy”. But as I tasted through them, I found that they were each incredibly satisfying, which fits the Valentine’s theme in its own way. In fact, we’re fairly certain that if you mix your lover up a fantastic cocktail using one (or all, but not all at once) of these liqueurs, you will sweep them off their boozin’ feet.
