Heartbreaker!

♪ You're a Heartbreaker
Dream Maker, Love Taker ♫
♪ Don't you mess around with me!

Oh, sorry, you caught me singing again. I'm pretty sure I could come up with a song for every occasion, to my neighbours' chagrin. Today I am dusting off the Pat Benatar for this awesome cocktail, the Heartbreaker.

It's made with one of my new favourite liqueurs, Alizé. Okay, Alizé has been around for a while, but they are new to me and I am in love! Seriously, all you need is some cubes and maybe a splash of soda for a delicious deck drink with these puppies. This weekend we glammed it up a bit, made ourselves some Heartbreakers. And may or may not have sung along as we sipped happily. We'll never tell.

Heartbreaker
Cocktail Recipe

- 3 oz Alizé Wild Passion

- 2 oz premium citrus vodka

- 1 oz fresh lime juice

- Shake well over ice, strain and serve straight up in a martini glass

- Garnish with a lime wedge

If you haven't tried Alizé yet, now's the time. I think they are especially suited to the warm weather, and they make one awesome girly drink. Wait, don't tell Charles I called them girly drinks. He loved them too.

Alizé comes in Gold Passion (passion fruit), Red Passion (passion fruit, cranberries, and a hint of peach), Wild Passion (passion fruit and mangos), Bleu Passion (passion fruit, ginger, and cherries), Rose Passion (passion fruit and lychees), and each bottle is blended with French spirits. Delicious!

I've never heard of Alize so I am uber happy you posted this! This is something that I could see going well with a fruit salad on the patio!

Oh, I've never heard of Alizé, either...it sounds divine! And I could totally go for a heartbreaker or two...you know, to go along with the song that is NOW stuck in my head. Thank you very much ;P

I've never tried Alize either, but I'd love to sample a sip (or two) of all those flavors. These cocktails look yummy!
