Having your significant other over for a few martinis on Valentine’s Day? Make a Rose Martini! For about four martinis, simply combine a half cup water and two tablespoons sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, then simmer and continue stirring until the sugar completely disappears. Allow the mixture to cool a bit. Then, add three and a half cups vodka, four teaspoons lime juice, and a half teaspoon rose water into the mixture, continuing to stir. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice cubes, add some of the martini mixture, and shake. Add a few Red Hots candy to each martini glass, and strain the martini shaker mixture into the glasses for a really fun looking drink!Valentine’s Day Hot Apple Cider
