This Love Potion Number 9 drink could actually be served for either a cocktail or a dessert. A dessert cocktail – I’m a big fan of those.
Then you definitely need to make this drink.
There are hundreds of recipes that you could make for dinner and you don’t need to be an expert chef to make them. Believe me, I’m not and I can get a pretty impressive dinner on the table in under thirty minutes.
This Love Potion Number 9 can also be made as a “mocktail” for the kids. Just put a scoop of ice cream in a glass, add a little grenadine from your cherry jar on top, and then pour in ginger ale or 7-up over it all. Garnish with strawberries or cherries. Lots of garnish for the kids – it’s definitely the ‘wow” factor for them.
I’ll always remember ordering Shirley Temples at a restaurant when I was little. And man, if the waiter brought you extra cherries… it made your whole night.
But this Love Potion Number 9 drink that I made is the boozy version, bubbling over with champagne. Because the “wow” factor for my wife is champagne. Always champagne! Bubbles make everything better, you know?
All you need to do to make this drink is add the vanilla vodka and strawberry liqueur into a glass, and then drop in a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Right before serving, fill the glass with champagne, stick a straw (and maybe a spoon) in there and serve it up.
You’ll be sure to impress anyone your cooking for this Valentine’s Day with this cocktail. Let’s hope what your making for dinner is just as good!
