Blushing GeishaThe Blushing Geisha cocktail has such an intriguing name! One has probably heard of the Japanese Geishas, with their typical heavy use of makeup, and paper umbrellas. It has become a popular Valentine's Day drink, since it has a romantic purple hue to it. If you make the Blushing Geisha for your girlfriend, then you'll find it is a fabulous aphrodisiac.
The Creme de Fraise des Bois ingredient may be difficult to find, but it surely is worth it. It is perhaps better to look for such an ingredient in a supermarket that stocks a lot of alcohol. However, you can also take a look on the Internet to see what you can find. Ideally it shouldn't set you back any more than $20.00. Creme de Fraise des Bois is essentially a strawberry based liqueur, with an alcoholic content around 16% to 18% depending on the brand.
The Blushing Geisha cocktail is typically served in a tumbler-style glass, and garnished with a lime or lemon wedge, and maybe an umbrella as well to bring home that Geisha atmosphere. We highly recommend this cocktail for a romantic evening it!
