This past Friday, I had some friends over to be my taste testers as I tried out new cocktail recipes for the upcoming holiday. It was such a fun night with gossip, snacks, and lots of experiments with the various ingredients I had amassed. It was so much fun and I highly recommend it both for a fun girls’ night as well as a date night ❤
We came up with a few fun, festive, and tasty treats that I thought I would share with you all.
Jazz up a romantic classic with strawberry heart ice cubes. I found a cheap tray from Walmart that I filled with finely chopped strawberries and water. Once frozen, I popped them into so champagne. They helped keep it chill, looked super cute, and added a little fruity zest to the drink.
This drink was my favorite of the night. I mashed up fresh raspberries with a dash of sugar then added in crushed ice, topping it off with Bailey’s Irish cream. It’s a perfect drink for a winter evening.
What a pomegra-NIGHT
Ingredients: 1/2 cup pomegranate juice, 1 cup of ginger ale, 2 shots vanilla vodka, and a dash of lemon juice. Mix well then serve. This one was my friends’ favorite. It has a nice festive color and is super sweet.
I hope you enjoy the recipes and have a very happy Valentine’s Day!!
