Love Potions: 50 Cupid Approved Cocktails for Valentine's Day

Madtini’s first ebook is Love Potions: 50 Cupid Approved Cocktails for Valentine’s Day.

When we think of love and romance many things come to mind. A crush. A first kiss. Flirtation. Hot passions. We’ve tried to cover all of the bases and with 50 romantic cocktails to choose from, love is in the air…

In our first chapter, Good Flirtations, we think about the early stages of love with drinks like “Love’s First Kiss”, “A Grand Crush” and “Valentine’s Kiss”.
The next chapter, On Cloud 9, is full of creamy, dreamy sweet cocktails such as “Kiss Me All Over”, “Angel’s Lips” and “P.S. I Love You”. Followed by chapter three, Passion’s Promises, with heady cocktails such as “Adrenaline Rush”, “Between the Sheets” and “Seduction on the Rocks”.

In chapter four, Spicing Things Up, we put a little fire into things with spicy cocktails such as “Flaming Heart”, “Hot Tamale” and “Sinful Cinntini”. And our final chapter, Hot & Steamy, has a selection of hot cocktails such as “Hot Minty Kiss”, “Hot Buttered Love” and “Winter Passion” to warm your heart.

Madtini’s 6 Kissable Cocktails for Valentine’s Day

Six Kissable Cocktails for Valentine's Day February 14th is only a few days away, and that means that Madtini Labs is awash in feelings of love, affection and inappropriate suggestions… which in reality is nothing that unusual for the weekend.

So, white our HR department deals those pressing issues we’re posting our collection of 6 Kissable Cocktails for St. Valentine’s Day.
