Single and looking? Taken and looking for spice? What’s your flavor–sweet and dreamy, sexy and daring, or optimistic with hopes to find someone who’s in it for the long haul? Whatever your pleasure, here are five drinks that’ll give you the balls to approach the one you’re going home with tonight.
Mademoiselle, Mama Rouge on the Georgetown Waterfront has a few options to set the night off right. Jake Gyllenhaal will be so into you after you’ve had a few Framboise Goose ($12), a sweet but potent cocktail on tap. He may even think you’re classy and wifey material if he catches you sippin’ on a glass of Midnight in Paris. 3000 K Street Northwest, Washington, DC. (202) 333-4422
Get nasty like Christian Grey, and be a real vixen by ordering the Room of Pain ($13) at the dark iPic Theaters in Bethesda. A seductive concoction of red rum, red jalapenos, blood orange, homemade ginger beer and red rose petals, this drink is sure to get the juices flowin’. P.S. get to iPic early on Valentine’s Day to score a free pair of red fuzzy handcuffs (!). 11830 Grand Park Avenue North Bethesda, MD. (301) 231-2300
For the damsel who’s in distress (we’re never in distress, we have ice cream and alcohol) feignin’ to talk to someone who looks like Idris Elba, Co Co. Sala gets you going with a sexy blend of chocolate and strawberries in Fetish ($13). 929 F Street NW, Washington, DC. (202) 347-4265
Up the ante at The Empress Lounge at The Mandarin Oriental, when The Kiss, a chocolate-raspberry tequila cocktail, is paired with a whiskey ice cream float for just $25. 1330 Maryland Avenue SW, Washington, DC. (202) 554-8588
