Glass with Crushed and Happily Ever After Cocktail Men usually take the heat when Valentine’s Day rolls around.  It is high time the tables turn and the ball lands in the ladies court for a change.  Ashley Womble of Cosmopolitan magazine suggests eight ideas for dates guys will remember forever.  While some might sound a bit cheesy (ie: renting a Vespa – Go for a Harley if you’ve got the dollars and expertise) the idea is take control, be the bad girl he desires and turn the Hallmark moment day into one he’ll never forget.  Purchase tickets to his favorite sporting event, join him for an afternoon out at the shooting range and then hit a beer and food pairing dinner.  Don’t forget the appropriate attire and smooth moves to assure your Happily Ever After Valentine’s Day ending.

Happily Ever After

1-3/4 ounce Rhum J.M. Blanc

3/4 ounce Cynar Artichoke Liqueur

3/4 ounce Cherry Heering
