Whether you’re spending the evening with your soul mate or your best gal pals I’ve mixed up some love potions to help set the mood this Valentine’s Day.
These cocktails are easy to make, and even easier to drink.
Strawberry Flirt Cocktail
2 oz Smirnoff Vodka
1 oz Fragoli Wild Strawberry liqueur
3 oz Prosecco (we used Villa Sandi)
Chill two champagne flutes.
Combine the vodka and wild strawberry liqueur in a cocktail shaker with 3 ice cubes. Shake for 6-7 seconds and then add to the chilled flute glasses.
Add Prosecco and garnish with several fresh sliced strawberries. Serve, savour and enjoy.
If you prefer you can make this with any sparkling wine instead of Prosecco or try it with sparkling water to make a lighter version of this cocktail.
Chocolate Swirl Cocktail
1 1/2 oz Godiva white chocolate liqueur
1 1/2 oz Creme de Cacao
1 oz Vodka
2 1/2 oz Half & Half
Chill a cocktail glass in the freezer for 10 minutes. Remove the glass and create swirls inside the glass using chocolate syrup, return the glass to the freezer.
Combine the vodka, creme de cacao and white chocolate liqueur in a cocktail shaker with 3 ice cubes. Shake well, add the half & half and stir.
Remove the glass from the freezer, add a tablespoon of white chocolate liqueur to a shallow glass. Turn the glass in the liqueur, then turn it in the chocolate shavings.
Agave Kiss Cocktail
2 oz Sauza Silver Tequila
1 oz white creme de cacao
1 oz double cream
1/2 oz Chambord
white chocolate shavings
Wet the rim of a cocktail glass and roll the edge in white chocolate shavings. Place 3-4 ice cubes in cocktail glass in place in the freezer. Combine the tequila, creme de cacao and chambord in a cocktail shaker with 3 ice cubes. Shake for 10 seconds. Add the double cream and stir well. Remove glass from freezer and strain contents of shaker into it. Skewer 3 fresh raspberries and serve.
Here’s hoping you’re making these two at a time!
