Colorado may be known for their lamb, oh and their ski hills, but they also know a little something about liquid love. You can either head over to The Broadmoor for a cocktail at the Summit Lounge or mix up your own “Liquid Love” as a perfect Valentine’s Day drink.

The last of the turkey has been transformed into an enchilada, sandwich or stew and it is time to move on from pumpkin pie spice to some other seasonal sweets. If you want to head to the Flatiron district and step into the opulent DUO Restaurant & Lounge you will feel like Clara in the Nutcracker transported to a magical place. Lorraine Belkin’s DUO S’Moretini brings you back to your childhood roasting s’mores over a summer fire while creating a grown up experience of snow-white, fluffly marshmallows in a cocktail.
The S’Moretini combines Vodka and Crème de Cacao with marshmallows, chocolate and a graham cracker-dusted martini rim for the ultimate s’more cocktail experience. If you’re spending the night in, sisters and DUO owners Sabina and Lorraine offer you the recipe to their signature winter cocktail so you can indulge without leaving home.
Rim a martini glass with chocolate syrup and crushed graham crackers.
Combine 2 oz of Ketel One Vodka with 1oz Crème de Cacao, shake vigorously with ice and strain into the martini glass.
Top the martini off with a scoop of marshmallow crème (such as Fluff), a drizzle of chocolate syrup and a marshmallow.
Sit by a fire and enjoy.
