It’s nearly that time of year again – yes Valentine’s!
It’s just around the corner, so the shops are awash with shades of pink and red, and romance is in the air. For some of us, at least.
So whether you’re looking to spend a sexy Valentine’s day with your significant other – or you’re spending this ‘hyped-up’ holiday alone – it’s still the perfect excuse to shake the dust off that cocktail shaker, and raid the drinks cabinet!
Check out these sweet and sexy Valentine’s drinks to get you in the mood:
Drunk in Love
This delicious concoction, is big on the strawberries – which is pretty much the most romantic of all the fruits, right? With a delicious mix of strawberry vodka and Champagne, it’s sure to please anyone who loves fresh and fruity flavours.
This Pomegranate Martini is the perfect Valentine’s Day cocktail! It’s a tasty triple berry martini with strawberry vodka, Chambord black raspberry liqueur, and pomegranate juice. Plus there’s a little dry ice trick to really put on a show.
Red Wine Chocolate
“You eat chocolate with wine, so why not put chocolate in wine?”
So says Kylie at Yeah…Imma Eat That – and we have to agree, it sounds like an interesting experiment to say the least. This ridiculously rich recipe combines red wine with hot chocolate for an interesting take on the classic combo. Just warm them both up in a saucepan and serve. Definitely worth a try if you fancy something a little different this Valentine’s.
Red Moon Over Manhattan
This Valentine’s cocktail is an interesting twist on the ever-classic Manhattan, incorporating red wine to give it a romantic Valentine’s blush. Check out the full recipe over at Sugar and Charm, and see just how easy it is to whip up this delicious tipple that’s perfect for entertaining.
Dipped Chocolate Vodka Soaked Strawberries
Okay, so this one technically isn’t a cocktail – but it combines strawberries, alcohol and chocolate, so who cares? And the recipe is so simple you could do it with your eyes closed (although not generally advised). Check out the full recipe over at Our Life In A Click, and you can whip some up right away… you know, as practice fo the big day 😉
Chocolate Strawberry Martini
Again, we’re loving the chocolate and strawberries combination here – and the fact that it’s made with just three ingredients means it’s perfect for a simple Valentine’s celebration to sweeten up your sweetheart. The recipe from Lemon Tree Dwelling calls for half-and-half, but you could make it super indulgent by opting for cream or chocolate milk!
