Love Potion #9 Martini Recipe

Why not wow your loved one, or just simply entertain yourself this Valentine’s Day with the Love Potion #9 Martini. With it’s steamy hot smouldering look, and drop dead gorgeous taste you could say it’s the idea recipe for love.

After all who doesn’t love cocktails and who doesn’t love strawberries?, and with the stunning smokey dry ice this is legitimately one of the recipes that actually looks as good as it tastes. 

DISCLAIMER: You cannot drink the dry ice! Dry Ice is super simple to use in cocktails like this, but proper handling is very important. You do not want to actually swallow the dry ice, so you use really small chunks and make sure they’re at the bottom of your drink and fully dissolved before sipping.  It takes about 5-10 minutes for a small piece to dissolve.  Do not ingest the cubes!  Once they dissolve your drink will be oh so cold and fabulous! If you are unsure of any handling of the dry ice the please Google it.  Dry ice is super fun and cute, but make sure you handle it correctly!
