Cupid Cocktail: Raspberry Chocolate Kiss Martini

17 days from now, you will have the privilege of concocting this dazzling martini for the one you love. Even if it is a first, or second date, and it's not exactly love yet, you can at least fall in love with this cocktail found on Martha Stewart, online.


1/2 cup Raspberries
1/2 oz. Mint syrup
1 oz. Vodka
1/2 oz. Cranberry juice
In a shaker, add raspberries that have been pre-crushed (not destroyed), with syrup, vodka, ice and cranberry juice. Shake very well. Shake again just to make sure everything is well combined (and your fingers are near frostbite). Double strain into a martini glass that's been rimmed in finely shredded flecks of chocolate.

Wedding Cocktail Hour - Don't Go Broke!
Not too long ago I remember giving sage advice to a mother of the bride about cocktail hour. She was so resolute in scrimping and saving on every last inch of the wedding prep that she actually over-spent. Clearly she didn't listen to a word I said. Well that was a complete and utter waste. My mouth was moving. Sounds were coming out. And what I could have been doing is what I should have been doing: pouring another glass of wine. Here's how you keep the booze flowing without going broke: 1. Partner with your favorite bar. Let them provide the beer and wine with a limited cocktail menu. 2. Limited doesn't mean cut-off. It means limited variety. 3. Keep your cocktails to three signature drinks. TIP By keeping your cocktails liquor base the same, you can reduce your booze costs dramatically. Consider doing rum cocktails or vodka cocktails.

Transfer liquids and ice to a cocktail shaker. Add a small pinch of flaky sea salt, then add agave nectar to taste*. 5. Shake vigorously until well chilled. 6. Pop off the top of your cocktail shaker and pour everything (drink and ice) back into the short glass. Garnish with a fresh wedge of ruby red grapefruit. Makes 1 drink.
