Drunk In Love: Valentine's Day Cocktails

Are you still looking for that romantic Valentine’s Day date idea? Maybe a classy, romantic night on the town? A steakhouse with a special Valentine’s Day cocktail is the perfect choice. Both J&G Steakhouse and Ben & Jack’s Steakhouse have come up with some deliciously romantic cocktails for the occasion.

J&G Steakhouse at the Phoenician created the Fraise Sauvage cocktail. This drink is delectably pink and refreshing on the lips. It is not sugary sweet but has a bit of tartness to keep you interested and wanting more. On the other hand, Ben & Jack’s Steakhouse’s cocktail, Sweet Love, is the epitome of a chocolate-covered strawberry. With a chocolate liqueur and strawberry puree you will never have tasted anything so perfect. It is even garnished with a chocolate-covered strawberry.

Make these yourself with the following recipes or go out on the town for a lovely Valentine’s Day date!
