The perfect Girl’s Night Out. What does it begin and end with? Glitz and glamour from head to toe. Friends. Good food. Wining and dining, with dancing till dawn. A fabulous pair of shoes that make men and women do a double dare double take. And footloose, fancy free cocktails with a feel for the sexy, sensual and flirtatious. Girl’s Night Out is all about finesse, fun and free living with a wee bit of sass stowed in for extra measure.
A simple brown box arrived in the mail the other day. As I cut through the mandatory layers of impossible to tear through tape and dug through mounds of crunchy white packing peanuts a pink tissue wrapped box emerged. My smile widened. Pink always comes through with playfully pleasurable treasures. And there it was – the big X-Rated. That’s when I knew for certain my hands lay upon the loveliest box of toys.
The X-Rated Girl’s Night Out Survival Kit contains everything a woman could want for planning a fabulous fun filled night out of cocktail glamour, sophisticated style and girl chat galore. X-Rated Fusion gets the party started with cocktail recipe card, X-Rated Fusion Liqueur and a few pocket sized trinkets for the ladies. And doesn’t this just sound divine: “This hot pink liqueur is a sensuous blend of ultra premium French vodka, infused with blood oranges, passion fruit and mango.” Kind of gets one steamy in all the right places just thinking about the playful concoctions to be made with this tantalizing potion.

1 ounce Myers’s Rum
2 ounces Pineapple Juice
Cherry & Orange Twist Garnish
Combine all liquid ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake to blend and chill. Strain into chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with cherry and orange twist.
Aroma is nice, summery and heavily lush. To be perfectly honest while mixing the Vintage Tini thoughts of sugar coma were already forming in my head. The aroma is not only sweet, but nearly syrupy. The first taste confirmed this thought. Vintage Tini is a definite sipper rather than gulper. However, dial back the pineapple juice a fraction to cut back on sweet and allow the wonderful flavor of Myers’s Rum some play time alongside the X-Rated Fusion Liqueur. Perhaps cut the X-Rated to 1-3/4 ounce as well and see if this magical sip lights up your Girl’s Night out.
Flirtatious Fancy – created by Cheri Loughlin
1 ounce SKYY Infusions Pineapple
3/4 ounce Cranberry Juice
2 ounces Brut Champagne
Combine X-Rated Fusion Liqueur, SKYY Infusions Pineapple and cranberry in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake to blend and chill. Strain into chilled champagne flute. Top with two ounces brut champagne.
Still leans toward the sweeter side of cocktail fancy, but this is to be expected when mango and passion fruit mingle for spirited play in an X-Rated Fusion Liqueur. Topped with tiny bubbles this cocktail aims to satisfy as ladies raise glasses in toast to a night of freedom, flamboyance and finesse.
