When it comes to modern love, as the saying goes, candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker. But I confess: There is one V-Day candy I enjoy. Imperial Hearts are just Red Hots made into little heart shapes, and yet they somehow taste different, better. Perhaps it's because they are a metaphor for the day. Romance should be sweet, of course, but the heat of passion rescues it from being insipid. And made into a sweet-spicy liqueur, well, be still my beating heart. A dribble of this lurid liqueur will turn even the cheapest sparkling wine into an absolute aphrodisiac. Don't over-invest on the vodka for this liqueur; remember, you're mixing it with candy. The final product will be alarmingly, glowingly red, and offers 100-percent US RDA of corn syrup, artificial flavors and red no. 40.
