Valentine’s Day cocktails

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be doing part three of my Valentine’s Day posts and today it’s all about Valentine’s Day cocktails. I love a good cocktail and the four I’ve selected for this are so good and definite crowd pleasers.

So first up we have Love Potion No. 9, it’s a triple berry martini and it’s one of my favorites. This recipes makes two drinks.

What you need:

  • 1 cup of pomegranate juice
  • 3 ounces of strawberry vodka
  • 3 ounces of Chambord Black Raspberry Liqueur
  • 2 heart cut strawberries to garnish, this is optional
  • 2 small pieces of dry ice, this is also optional

What you do:

  • First, in a cocktail shaker, add the pomegranate juice, vodka and the Chambord. Shake to combine.
  • If you are using the dry ice, then place one small piece in the bottom of each glass. Then pour the martini over the dry ice.
  • Garnish your drinks with two of the heart shaped strawberries on a skewer.
  • Wait for the dry ice to dissolve completely.
  • Serve and enjoy!

Next we have Strawberry Moscow Mules. Moscow Mules are always great and this is a fun twist on the classic. This recipe makes one drink.

What you need:

  • 1 1/2 ounces of vodka
  • 1 1/2 ounces of strawberry soda
  • 1/2 a small lime
  • 8 ounces of ginger beer
  • Sliced strawberries and limes to garnish, this is optional

What you do:

  • You can do this in a tumbler or a copper mug, but first add ice.
  • Add the vodka, strawberry soda, the juice from the lime and the ginger beer.
  • Stir to combine and garnish with the sliced strawberries and limes.
  • Serve and enjoy!

Our second to last cocktail is the one that I haven’t tried yet and it’s simply called Lady in Red. And this recipe makes one drink.

What you need:

  • 1 1/2 ounces of Maker’s Mark bourbon
  • 1 ounce of pomegranate juice
  • 1/2 ounce of lemon juice
  • Chilled ginger beer

What you do:

  • Add the Maker’s Mark, pomegranate juice and lemon juice to a cocktail shaker that’s been filled with ice.
  • Shake for about a minute then pour into an ice filled glass and top with the ginger beer.
  • Serve and enjoy!

And finally we have Pink Strawberry Sangria. This is also a great drink for summer parties. This recipe makes 12 drinks.

What you need:

  • One bottle of pink moscato wine, 750 ml
  • 1/2 cup of strawberry vodka
  • 2 cups of lemon lime soda
  • 6-10 large strawberries, sliced

What you do:

  • In a large pitcher combine the wine and the vodka and add in the strawberries. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • Right before serving add in the lemon lime soda.
  • Pour over ice filled glasses.
  • Serve and enjoy!

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys make any of these drinks tweet me a picture or tag me on Instagram.

Until next time, enjoy your drinks and I hope you all have a happy Valentine’s Day :).
