NY – Cupid won’t need target practice this Valentine’s Day with my perfect West Village evening!
2. If Thursdays are your night to howl at the moon, head downtown to famed Meatpacking District’s The Haberdasher for drinks and live Burlesque. Perched on the third floor of a beautifully restored 1800’s townhouse restaurant, 5 Ninth, The Haberdasher offers craft cocktails, its very own Manhattan List (featuring six variations of this classic cocktail), and Burlesque shows on Thursday evenings. For reservations – 212.929.9460.
3. In case Ol’ Jack Frost keeps you from getting into the elements, here are two of my favorite aphrodisiac-inspired recipes for you to make at home. So much can happen in a New York minute, so I promise these sweets will heat things up in seconds flat.
FRANGELICO AND CREAM
Frangelico, with its intense hazelnut flavor and high alcohol content, is a known aphrodisiac!
1 shot Frangelico
1 shot cream or half ‘n half
Dash of Vodka
Combine in a cocktail shaker with crushed ice. Shake then strain into a tumbler with ice. Garnish with a cinnamon stick.
