Valentine’s Day is coming up pretty soon and Otis at N8tion.com has partnered with Virtual Potluck to bring you cocktails paired with our special Valentine’s treats. I have a fabulous appetizer for you today that is so easy and quite tasty.
Do you have a Valentine’s tradition? My sweetie and I used to always have dinner out but you know with kids and living in the middle of nowhere makes that a little difficult! So usually we have dinner at home with the kids, but a cocktail is definitely in order! Before I introduce the cocktail video here is a little more info on N8tion!
“Taste is a new mixology show that features cool cocktails from the common guy. From the creative minds at N8tion.com, our resident “booze head” Otis showcases classic and not-so-classic cocktail recipes. Who is Otis???? We found him under a bar in downtown Atlanta nursing a Corona while holding a box of Krispy Kreme doughnuts. No seriously, after tending bars for countless college parties, he honed his bartending skills in local taverns on the nights he wasn’t moonlighting as a bouncer. Taste is a product of N8tion.com, an independent television and radio network founded by brothers Myron and Otis McDaniel.”
