DIY Mixology: Godiva Cocktail Recipes

My favorite nights out are to ultra expensive mixology bars. I love a fancy cocktail comprised of more ingredients than my typical meals. Gin, cucumber, lime, cilantro, and jalapeno peppers? Start muddling! Whiskey, orange bitters, honey, lemon and cinnamon? If it's winter, absolutely!

I've never made a fancy cocktail at home. I was invited to a Godiva Spirits Mother's Day event but had to decline, missing the opportunity to sample the following cocktails. If anyone wants to make me one of these yummy bevvies this Mother's Day, a lingering kiss will be your reward:
