And on that slightly cheesy, but totally genuine note, I present to you this Valentine's Day cocktail recipe for Love Potion #9!

1/2 oz Skyy Vodka 

1/2 oz Sweet and Sour Mix 

DIY Sweet and Sour Mix: Combine equal parts simple syrup and lemon and/or lime juice. Click here for a simple syrup recipe.
