Pick Your Potion
Chances are that come next Tuesday you will be one of the 99%.
And by that, we mean the majority of the population who will be swigging something potent in honor of Valentine’s Day.
So, whether you’re toasting to your love, celebrating singlehood, or just giving it up for another Tuesday, here are a few places to sip V-Day-inspired concoctions.
On offer at Park 75 at the Four Seasons Hotel is the Chocolate Covered Cherry Martini. Available through March 31, this tipple of Absolut vanilla vodka, Dark Crème de Cacaco and cherry juice tipple is a fruity delight that satisfies any chocolate craving. 75 Fourteenth Street. 404-253-3840.
Have your cake and drink it too with the Iced Chocolate Cake, offered exclusively at Signature Room now through March. This indulgent concoction was created in the name of St. Valentine but more importantly, to commemorate National Chocolate Month. It might sound sinful but the real icing on the cake is that it’s guiltless: Frangelico plus SKYY Infusions Citrus served on the rocks equals less than 150 calories per serving. 875 N. Michigan Ave. 96th Fl. (btw. E. Chestnut St. and N. Michigan Ave.) 312-787-7230.
Whiskey Blue aptly calls its dessert cocktail--what else?--the Whiskey Blue Bon Bon. Inhale deeply and savor the raspberry infused blend of Amaretto Di Saronno, Frangelico and chocolate syrup. Then exhale. 541 Lexington Ave. (btw. 49th and 50th St.) 212-407-2947.
