Love is in the Air

It's that time of year again. The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and the flowers are blooming. I have noticed as an observer that during this time of year, boys are especially interested in strange girls and these same strange girls are especially interested in flirting back. If you live on the east coast and still have 6 more months until the nice weather, then I apologize, but Saint Valentines day is coming up, so this post might be helpful to you anyways.


Game and skills are all well and good, but if you want to get a strange girl to like you the best, then you're not gonna do it by re-inventing the wheel. You're gonna need to make yer girlie feel special, feel girlie, and you're gonna need booze. Fortunately if you shake the right cocktail, you can kill two birds with one stone. The following is a collection of drinks that looks girlie and taste good. Just like your springtime should. Just like your date should.


Sex on the Beach


  • 1.5 oz of Vodka
  • 1.5 oz Peach schnapps
  • 2.5 oz Orange juice
  • 2.5 oz Cranberry juice
  • Plenty of ice

In a highball glass (12 oz) filled with ice, pour the vodka and schnapps and stir. well. Pour some of the OJ and Cranberry juice and stir again. a little more ice, and pour the remaining juice without stirring. the colors will diffuse into each other in a sexy dance of orange and purple. Follow it up with your own suggestive dance. If she seems startled at having her hips led around by her slender waist, just tell her the barkeep made you do it.


Tequila Sunrise


  • 1.5-2.0 oz. Tequila
  • 6 oz OJ
  • Splash of grenadine
  • plenty of ice

pour tequila and juice over ice (again in a highball glass) and stir. Tilt the glass and run the grenadine down the side. It will sink to the bottom and look like a sunrise. The drink will then gladly lend itself to any amount of innuendo and double entendre that your girl will tolerate. Only slightly less suggestive and only slightly more alcoholic is the Tequila sunset, prepared the same except at the end, instead of sinking grenadine, you should float some berry brandy.


Pink Gin and Tonic


You know how to make a gin and tonic. Girls love'em. Splash a little bit o' Campari to add colour and flavour. For a real visceral experience, mix this Highball over a blacklight.

For those of you lucky gentlemen seeking the attention of luscious louches, i will return soon with cocktail recipes.
