3. (a) Bacon Old Fashioned. No kiss on the first date for you — you prefer the old-school, take-things-slow approach.

(b) Sweet Red Kiss. You say, go for that first date kiss — it's worth it! Just like this sweet, red-tinted aperitif cocktail.

(c) "New Way" Dirty Martini. You're single and open to a whole new world of possibilities, like this cool, molecular mixology cocktail.
