Raspberry Moscato Cocktail

The heart-shaped ice cubes complete this adorable and delicious Valentine’s Day cocktail. The best part is, you only need 4 ingredients! Check out the full recipe here.

As the name suggests, you’ll need some good moscato. The one I recommend for this recipe is Tomascello Red Raspberry Moscato.

Blackberry Lavender Champagne Cocktail

This is such a beautiful and picturesque drink. I love the addition of lavender, its a unique twist on the typical Valentine’s Day garnishes. This one requires a bit more effort, but the work pays off. Check out the full recipe here.

This recipe calls for 2 bottles of champagne. The champagne I recommend is Lc Villa Prosecco Millesimato Extra Dry (psst! It’s only $12 a bottle!).

Bourbon Cherry Old Fashioned

A festive twist on a classic. I also love how this one strays from the strawberry and raspberry theme that typically goes with Valentine’s Day treats and showcases cherries instead. This is also another super simple recipe that only requires a couple ingredients. See the full recipe here.

This recipe calls for a higher-end bourbon. I recommend Bulleit Bourbon.

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Shooters

If there was one drink to sum up Valentine’s Day, it would be this one. I think these chocolate covered strawberry shooters are even better for Galentine’s Day. The recipe calls for white chocolate liqueur and vodka, but I think you can substitute both for Bailey’s Strawberries and Cream. Check out the full recipe here.

V-Day White Wine Spritzer

This recipe is a bit more versatile so you can definitely customize it to your taste. This particular recipe combines pinot grigio, prosecco and orange liqueur. The recipe creator includes substitutions if you prefer red wine or want to substitute the prosecco for sparkling water. You can check out the full recipe here.

Personally, since it’s Valentine’s Day I would use rosé, peach schnapps, raspberries and sparkling water. The rosé I recommend is Chateau Miraval Rose (you can also check out my review here!).

The Sweetheart

First off, I need to point out that the creator of this recipe says this drink must be served accompanied by a bunch of flowers. Major points there. At first glance, this looks like a regular red cocktail in a festive glass. However, this recipe calls for rose petal liqueur which is perfect for the occasion! You will definitely impress with this cocktail.

Love Potion #9

This super creative cocktail is basically a triple berry martini, consisting of black raspberry liqueur, strawberry vodka and pomegranate juice. You get bonus points if you garnish with strawberry hearts and dry ice as pictured. Check out the full recipe here.
