Valentine’s Day Cocktails

Hi everyone,

With Valentine’s Day being tomorrow, I thought it would be fun to do a post featuring some fun and delicious Valentine’s Day cocktails. I have three to tell you about, so let’s get into it.

First up we have the Lovebug Cocktail, this is super simple to make and can easily be made into a mocktail if you want. This makes one drink.

What You Need:

  • 3 ounces of white cranberry juice
  • 2 ounces of lemon lime soda
  • 1 ounce of vodka
  • 1 ounce of grenadine
  • Ice
  • 2 ounces of simple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons of granulated red sprinkles

What You Do:

  • First, get two plates and grab the glass that the drink will be served in. On plate pour the simple syrup and on the other pour out the sprinkles. Dip the rim of the glass in the simple syrup, then in the sprinkles until the rim is nicely lined.
  • Next, fill the cup with ice and pour in the white cranberry juice, lemon lime soda, vodka and grenadine.
  • Serve and enjoy!

The second cocktail we have is Cupid’s Cocktail. This will look really pretty once it’s made and this recipe makes four drinks.

What You Need:

  • 16 ounces of champagne
  • 8 ounces of grapefruit juice
  • 1/4 cup of pomegranate seeds
  • 6 ounces of vodka
  • 6 ounces of water
  • Pink food coloring
  • 4 strawberries

What You Do:

  • So this first step you can do either hours before making this cocktail or 24 hours before. And what you’re going to do is make vodka ice cubes. You don’t have to use heart shaped ice cube trays for this but if you can find them and want to really carry the theme through then go for it. What you’re going to do to make these is take 2 ounces of the vodka and mix it into the water, then add the pink food coloring until you have your preferred color. Then pop them into the freezer.
  • When you’re ready to serve these take out your ice cubes and put them, along with the pomegranate seeds, into the bottom of each of your glasses.
  • Fill each of the glasses with 2 ounces of grapefruit juice and top that off with champagne.
  • Finish each glass with a skewered strawberry, serve and enjoy!

The last cocktail we have is The Bourbon Sweetheart. Most cocktails for Valentine’s Day are more fruity, so I like to try and find at least one that is different and this one is perfect.

What You Need:

  • 2 dashes of Angostura bitters
  • 3/4 ounces of rich simple syrup
  • 2 strawberries, cut into large pieces
  • .50 ounces of ginger liqueur
  • 3/4 ounces of lime juice
  • 3-4 ounces of club soda
  • 2 ounces of bourbon

What You Do:

  • First, place your strawberries into a shaker and muddle the strawberries and simple syrup.
  • Then fill the shaker with crushed ice, bourbon, ginger liqueur, lime juice and bitters.
  • Shake and pour into a tall glass. Then top with club soda and a fresh strawberry to garnish.
  • 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. And if you guys have any drink recommendations, let me know.

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