Spring Has Sprung: 4 Drinks To Get You In The Mood

Spring has finally sprung! And with the coming of Spring, “the sun is out, birds are singing, bees are trying to have sex with them… as is my understanding”.

Here at the BarWhiz Blog, as you may already know, we love to provide you with a list of our favorite drink recipes, so today we thought there was no better time than Spring to finally share our recipes for drinks to get you in the mood.

So without further ado, here are the top 4 Drinks To Get You In The Mood:

The Spice of Aphrodite

Aphrodite is the Greek goddess of love, lust and beauty. It was said she was born of the sea and rode to the island of Cyprus on the back of a scallop shell. It turns out that scallops, just like oysters and clams, are an aphrodisiac. They contain high levels of zinc and certain amino acids that are thought to increase the libido. Add this to the sexual powers of asparagus, which is rich in potassium, phosphorous, calcium, and vitamin E, and olives, the The Spice of Aphrodite is one drink that will be certain to get you in the mood.

1.5 oz of vodka
4 oz of Clamato juice
2 dashes Tabasco
3 dashes pepper
4 dashes Worcestershire
lime wedge
sea salt for rim
pickled asparagus and olives for garnish

Rim a tall rocks glass with sea salt. Squeeze a wedge of lime and drop into the glass. Fill with ice. Add vodka, Tabasco, Worcestershire and fill with Clamato juice. Add pepper and garnish with two pickled asparagus spears and two skewered olives.

Eros Delight

Eros, the Greek god of love and sexual passion, was the inspiration for our modern day Cupid. When I think of Cupid I immediately think of cinnamon hearts. And nothing pairs better with cinnamon than apples. It just so happens these two delights are also considered to be aphrodisiacs. Cinnamon has been used to treat impotence, and apples, the forbidden fruit of temptation, are packed with vitamins, minerals, and enzymes that stimulate sexual desire.

6 oz of white wine
1.5 oz apple juice
1.5 tsp limejuice
club soda
cinnamon stick
apple slice

Combine white wine, apple juice, and limejuice in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain into martini glass. Top with club soda and garnish with slice of apple and cinnamon stick.

Venus Envy

Venus, Rome’s version of Aphrodite, is the Roman goddess of love, lust and beauty. Our Venus Envy creation contains, among other aphrodisiac looking ingredients, honey, which is said to contain boron, a trace mineral that helps the body metabolize estrogen, as well as B vitamins, which are used to enhance testosterone.

3 oz white wine
3 oz sparkling wine
1 oz cucumber water
1 tsp limejuice
2 teaspoons honey
chopped mint leaves

Combine white wine, cucumber water, limejuice, honey and mint leaves to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain into a tall glass, top with sparkling wine and garnish with cucumber slices and mint.

Rati’s Passion

Rati, the Hindu goddess of passion and lust, basically wrote The Book of Love. With Sanskrit words like rati-karman and rati-laksha, both which translate to sexual intercourse, it is by no stretch of the imagination that the Indian Hindu text, The Kama Sutra, came to be. For our last recipe of drinks to get you in the mood we combined both basil, considered the sacred herb of India, that has been found to awaken the senses, stimulate blood flow, and relieve fatigue, with strawberries, thought to be one of the most erotic fruits on the planet.

6 oz white wine
4 strawberries
1 tsp sugar
1 sprig basil
1 oz lemon juice

Combine strawberries, sugar, basil and lemon juice into a blender. Strain into a tall glass filled with ice. Top with white wine and add strawberry and lemon slices for garnish.

The Pick Up Line Worked… Now What?

Eyes Wide Shut Party at Macao Trading Company

Many good men are failing miserably using “pickup lines” on woman these days. That’s because even the wittiest pickup lines will almost always sound canned and inauthentic –two traits that are sure to turn away any intelligent, self respecting woman.

That being said, this post is not about why 99% of “pickup lines” fail; nor is it about how to cope with the embarrassment that comes after your line bombs, badly. This post is about what to do when the pickup line actually works… so now what?

You’re at a bar with a buddy and you see a cute girl sitting with her friend across the room. You take a few minutes to assess the situation, think about a game plan, and conjure up the confidence to go talk to her; but what do you say when it comes to the cold approach?

Do you steal a pickup line from the Fresh Prince of Bel Air and say: “Baby write down your number before I don’t want it no more!” Or do you go with something a little less presumptuous like: “My desire for you is like diarrhea, I just can’t hold it in.”

To be sure, both these lines will probably have you escorted out of the bar like a fool in no time. Either way, you know you have to make conversation with this girl…and fast, before someone else does. So you and your wing man go over and approach the two girls; you walk tall and assume a friendly smile. Once eye contact is made you move in and say (with a slightly humorous tone): “Did you have lucky charms for breakfast? Because you look magically delicious!” The girl laughs out loud, looks at her friend and then back at you and exclaims: man I could really go for a bowl of those right now!

You’re speechless… It worked; your pathetic pickup line actually worked and she wants to continue the conversation. Now what do you do? Here’s the answer:

Focus on the three F-bombs. That’s right, keep it Fresh, keep it Fast, and keep it Fun. If you employ these three F-bombs you might be able to build enough rapport to actually have a first date (or even take her home that night).

1) Fresh


Keep it fresh by talking about new and exciting experiences and adventures in your life; let her in on the details of your life and ask her questions about hers (although don’t ask too many questions as you might turn her off by seeming “too” interested).

2) Fast

salsa chemistry

Don’t hum and haw about the same things or dwell too much on one topic (unless of course you’re both totally enthralled by it, a sign of good things to come.) Once conversation has been steady for a few minutes, change things up, add some variety to the situation: ask if she wants to dance, challenge her to a game of pool in the bar, show her some cool photos on your phone. The key is to keep her guessing and keep her entertained.

3) Fun


And last but not least, keep it fun. Cyndi Lauper knew what she was talking about when she wrote the song “Girls just want to have fun.” I mean, who doesn’t want to have a good time and meet new people, right? Crack some jokes, tease her about little idiosyncrasies you notice (careful with this one, though); you might also want to involve her friend(s) in the conversation if you feel that things are getting too intense with just the two of you. Oh, and be sure to listen, don’t embarrass yourself by making her repeat herself.

If you can remember to employ the three F-bombs, you might just get to share a bowl of lucky charms together in the morning.

What A Girl’s Makeup Says About How To Approach Her In A Bar

80's Makeup

If you are not heading out to a sports bar with the boys, or knocking back a few pints at the end of a hard week’s work with your co-workers, then this weekend it is definitely time to hit up the clubs. The weather is nice, and with the warmer temperatures the ladies will be ready to strut their stuff.

When it comes to hitting on the ladies at the clubs, there are many how to’s available all over the internet, from one-liners to pick-up lines, with some offering good advice and others, well, terrible advice.

In reality, a girl tries to make it easy of us guys to let us know how to, or even if we should, approach her at a club. From the clothes she wears, to her hairstyle, and even her make-up, girls are always giving us guy’s subtle little clues if they are interested in us or not.

Check out these five common make-up styles and how they relate to they way you should approach her at a bar or club:

#1 – Smoky Eyes


She wants to look smouldry and sexy at the same time, and the smoky eyes style does the trick. So what does this heavy use of mascara mean for you? Approach With Caution. The smoky eyes could be out just to show how hot they think they look, and really only be in the mood to see how many guys they can turn down. Only approach if you get the invitation first, all it takes is some eye contact and a smile, unless of course you are feeling adventurous and are packing an iron-clad ego that you don’t mind getting dented.

#2 – Fresh-Faced Look


With the girl-next-door look you are likely in for a girl who is not only very sweet and kind, but also someone smart that appreciates intellectual conversation. The ole one-liners won’t work here, even if said ironically. Although she’ll understand the irony, it probably won’t impress her. You’ll have to bump up your game here and prepare to dazzle her with your knowledge of current events.

#3 – The Barbie


With her hot pink lips, the Barbie is out to have a good time tonight. You’ll either find her getting down on the dance floor or hear her laughing at the bar. Only approach this girl if you know how to have fun. Keep the conversation light and silly and if you can make her laugh you should have no problems at all.

#4 – O’Natural


The o’natural style is a girl who is not only confident but also down to earth. Whether she is wearing very little or no make-up at all, this girl knows she is attractive, and really, that it was just simple luck of genetics. Although everyone loves to be complemented, hearing how beautiful she is from strangers really isn’t going to impress her, especially since you are not the first and definitely will not be the last. As with the Smoky Eye, wait for the invitation before you approach. The best approach would probably be an indirect one, for example, asking her opinion about something.

#5 – The Seductress


Although it may be hard to differentiate between hot pink lips and bright red ones on the dance floor, the Seductress is definitely not the same as the Barbie. Sure, they are both out looking for fun, but the Seductress knows exactly what she is looking for, and is not afraid to get it. Since she will be flirtatious, and likely have her eye on someone already, this approach may be a little difficult. If her eyes are somewhere else and she continues to give monosyllabic answers it’s best to move on. If she’s into you, you’ll know it.

For the girls that use make-up to lure guys in, I stumbled upon this very informative video from Makeup Geek.com that I thought you might enjoy:

Top 10 ‘Slap-In-The-Face-Worthy’ Pick-up Lines

Some girls may tell you that pick-up lines are overrated. Others will say that they are not necessary. But in reality a pick-up is a great way to initiate conversation, so good or bad, some girls will still respond to them, but maybe just not the way you had hoped.

WARNING: The following ten pick-up lines should never be used:

4. “I have a dictionary in my pants. Let’s say we go back to your house and put some words in your mouth.”

3. “Wanna do a ’68′? You go down on me and I’ll owe you one.”

2. “You might as well just sleep with me, because I’m going to tell everyone you did.”
