Kudos Kravings: Local love potions for the month of romance
In just a few days, it'll be February and with it, Valentine's Day. Celebrate with that special someone by going out and having a few special drinks or drown the sorrows of the single life. There's plenty of places in Prescott and Prescott Valley to go out and have a romantic brew.
Here's a few.
Looking to spend some of that romantic time in Prescott Valley? Have a drink at Lonesome Valley Brewery, 3040 Windsong Drive. The brewery has a hefeweisen called 3 Baron, $5.50 for 16 ounces.
Also in Prescott Valley is Sidekicks Saloon, 6851 E. First St., which has the Almond Joy, containing Almendrado tequila, Malibu rum and club soda, $4.
Or maybe this Valentine's Day is looking to be a bit more upscale. If so, head to Bistro St. Michael, 100 S. Montezuma St., Prescott, home of the X-Rated Martini. Containing X-Rated Fusion Liqueur vodka, Grey Goose Vodka, muddled and garnished with an orange and served straight up. The drink is hot pink, $9.
There's also Superstition Meadery, 120 W. Gurley St., which has a traditional sweet mead known as Super Bee, containing honey, water and yeast. It won the 2015 Mazer Cup International Mead Competition, and the honey used is Ironwood Honey, a honey that had never been used in a mead before. Superstition Meadery's first commercial batch, it's delicious and sweet, just like Valentine's Day, $48/bottle.
But maybe that special someone just wants to keep it casual in downtown Prescott. Then take them to the Prescott Brewing Co., 130 W. Gurley St. Featured here is the Red Heart Ale, being released around Valentine's Day. It's a deep red ale that's very malty, $4.75 for a pint. Prescott Brewing Co. is also releasing a coffee doppelback in February called the Javanator, a lager that's 8 percent alcohol and very smooth. Pricing has yet to be determined.
On the other hand, sometimes lovebirds want to get away from the bustle of downtown. Prescott Crush Wine Café, 1751 Highway 69, is offering its February Bubbles Special, where all bottles of sparkling wine are 20 percent off for the month. Owners Ronda Hayter and Michelle Clustka are just "bubbly" over it, according to an email from Clustka.
