Sinful Cinntini

Your friends the amateur intoxicologists here at Madtini Research Laboratories have come up with a number of Madtini Original cocktails to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

This, the third of our Valentine’s Day Passion Potions, has …

a little sizzle

a little zing

a little spice

Just like the red hot cinnamon hearts that give this cocktail it’s name. The combination of cinnamon and champagne really sizzles… when you drop the cinnamon hearts into it … mmmm…. the sizzling begins….

Sinful Cinntini Cocktail

  • 1 ounce cinnamon schnapps
  • 1 ounce sparkling wine
  • 3 cinnamon hearts

In a cocktail glass pour cinnamon schnapps, then sparkling wine, then drop 3 cinnamon hearts in. The cinnamon hearts create a sizzling reaction with the sparkling wine creating a sinfully stunning cocktail.

The #Tweetini

We’ve had a request, of sorts, from @Jennifer_JJ for a #Tweetini – and we put this together and it’s actually pretty tasty (considering we just sort of quickly whipped this up)…

1 part vodka
1 part blue curacao
1/2 part cinnamon schnapps
2 parts white cranberry juice

Combine in a cocktail shaker filled with ice, shake, serve in cocktail glass – garnish with a maraschino cherry or two.

Hopefully sometime soon we’ll have a #Madtini #Tweetini #Tweetup!

Happy 2010 Everyone :)
