Red Hot Lover

Red Hot Lover

Red Hot Loverred hot is an understatement, I got enough alcohol here to fuel a rocket!  Here’s the issue with all the booze – who wants just one red hot lover when you can have two!  There’s a recipe for a Red Hot Lover in “the book” but I came across another recipe online that was completely different… so now it’s decision time… what to do… who what to choose?  Well, I decided to take a chance, introduce the two drinks to each other and see if I could arrange a little ménage à cocktail…

I bought all the ingredients for both versions of the drink, mixed ’em both up and had a little taste test with a few people who happened to be hanging around the house.

Red Hot Lover #1 Red Hot Lover #2
  • 2 shots vodka
  • 2 shots peach Schnapps
  • 1 splash of grenadine
  • 3 oz strawberry margarita mix
  • 3 oz orange juice
  • 1 oz. Triple Sec
  • 1/2 oz. Southern Comfort
  • 1/2 oz. bourbon whiskey
  • 1/2 oz. grenadine
  • Splash of pineapple juice
  • Fill with cranberry juice

I poured the drinks into separate glasses and sent everyone off with one in each hand for a little alone time, give them a try and then report back which one they thought was the better Red Hot Lover… after just a couple minutes (I was done in less then 30 seconds) the results were in and with a vote of 2-1, Red Hot Lover #1 became the choice drink of the night!

Drink Tip: Just accept it for what it is and and don’t try to change her… er, I mean it… After trying both drinks myself (and voting for #1) I started feeling a little adventurous, thought I could make them better, that I could take the best traits from each, mix them together to make the perfect Red Hot Lover for myself!  Well, that didn’t go as planned…  I won’t go into all the graphic details but let’s just say strawberry mix can make a sticky mess…
