These two are my favorites for special occasions. VERRRY relaxing. I only drink one of either, per sitting. Probably have two of each a year.

Dirty Martini
Dirty Martini (The Webtender)

Sake-tini
2 1/2 oz Vodka
1 1/2 tsp Sake that has been warmed in a microwave
1 slice of cucumber

Heat the sake in the microwave until warm. Pour the vodka into a martini glass, pour the warm sake over it. Float a cucumber slice in the glass.

Also, warm sake is a joy in itself.

Well we were a group of guys hoping to share this drink with the ladies. When we were mixing it up it would have not gone over well if a group of 6 guys were in the kitchen alone making snugglers

I know, no warm drinks, but I'm breaking the rules anyway.

Heat ginger ale in the microwave till hot. Add brandy & a small wedge of lemon.

Point well taken
Actually a small ski resort by me calls them this.

Haha...well that date went very well, and she'll probably be visiting at some point. I'll actually be there for 8 whole days..my oldest brother just seperated from his wife and doesn't have a use for his "Valentine's Week Getaway" anymore, so I get the place to myself, for free!

Ok, I changed my mind about "no warm drinks"...this sounds awesome. Never bought any kind of schnapps before...what popular name are they sold under?

DeKupers or something like that. I can't remember the exact name. In this drink brand will not really matter.

Never heard them called Rocket Fuel, Pix. Unless you were using the 100 proof version of peppermint schnapps?

Those are some darn tasty beverages though. Butterscotch schnapps is a popular addition to hot chocolate as well.

We always go with Polish Blackberry brandy (Jezynowka) when we're on the slopes. Afterwards, we don't really have a standard "drink", just whatever seems good at the lounge, or is in the fridge at the condo (Depending on where we are).
