New Years Eve is just around the corner, and it’s got everyone thinking about that midnight kiss. Maybe you’ve got your eye on someone in particular, or maybe you’ll meet someone new unexpectedly – either way, be prepared to wow them with my flirting tips for holiday parties (hint: it involves making cocktails!).
In my opinion, it’s sexy and confident to make yourself into the bartender for a while. There’s nothing worse than feeling awkward and forgetting what to say when you see your cutie. By making a delicious cocktail, you’ve got something to do with your hands, you’ve got the ultimate conversation starter, and you’ve got the perfect excuse to hang out with him or her, by taking over a drink!
My favorite cocktail recipe this New Year’s Eve is my Mezcal Kicker (you can also find the recipe in my book!). I’m a tequila lover, and its naughty older cousin mezcal makes for the perfect grown up cocktail with some herbs and lime – so refreshing without being too sweet or tart.
Check out the recipe and video below for how to make this classy cocktail, and nab that hottie! They’re sure to be impressed.
4 ounces of silver mezcal
Juice of 4 limes
Ice filled shaker
2 tablespoons agave nectar
1 dried red chili
Lime wedge, to garnish
2 sprigs of thyme, to garnish
Shake everything but the lime wedge and thyme together vigorously in a cocktail shaker. Pour over ice and garnish with lime wedge and thyme. Enjoy!
