01 Strawberry Lemonade Margarita
@thespritzeffect whips up this cute and refreshing strawberry lemonade margarita in a few simple steps. First, rim your glass with sugar and tuck a few heart-shaped strawberry slices into the sides of the glass so they’re visible. Then, combine tequila, Cointreau, lemon juice, and strawberry lemonade to make your drink. Add in a pinch of edible glitter for added sparkle.
For anyone who can’t do tequila, Yummly has this rum and vodka alternative that makes a similar
strawberry lemonade sunshine. No matter what you mix together, the strawberry hearts are a must. 02 Muddled Raspberry Margarita
To make this
muddled raspberry margarita by @cocktailcreation, start with a handful of fresh raspberries that you muddle at the bottom of your glass. Pour in two shots of tequila, juice from half a lime, half a shot of Cointreau, and agave syrup before shaking. Then, add to a glass with a pink salt rim to serve.
Sparkly, sweet, and a little romantic, this
rose petal cocktail by @berryandtheboards just may be the perfect Valentine’s Day drink. To start, mix lime juice, pomegranate juice, simple syrup, and gin, then chill. Pour the mixture into your cocktail glass and add a pinch of edible glitter to this gorgeous dark pink drink. Finally, garnish with fresh fruit and rose petals.
For a double rose drink, use your petals to garnish a
sangria recipe from Yummly that uses rosé. After a cute Valentine’s Day date night with your partner, you can literally stop and smell the rosé together. 04 White Chocolate Strawberry Cocktail
white chocolate strawberry drink by @cocktails looks and tastes just like a Neapolitan ice cream sandwich, but with a twist. To make this one, start by rimming your glass in chocolate syrup. Then, mix white chocolate liqueur, vanilla vodka, and strawberry milk. Pour over ice and chill to serve. Serve your drinks with some white chocolate covered strawberries for the ultimate V-Day treat.
Why wait to have dessert when you can drink it with this
Love Bomb cocktail recipe by @cocktailcreation? Start by placing two scoops of vanilla ice cream, two shots of vanilla vodka, and one shot of strawberry liqueur into a blender, then blend until smooth. Rim your cocktail glass with chocolate syrup, then pour in your drink and garnish with a heart-shaped strawberry. 06 Raspberry Rosé Sorbet Float
It couldn’t be easier to make this
raspberry rosé float by @bevsbybeverly. First, grab a glass and drop a scoop of rich raspberry sorbet inside. Then, pour in a shot of raspberry vodka and top it off with sparkling rosé wine. You can sip right away, or wait until the sorbet melts for a deeper fruit flavor.
To make your drink even more boozy, the scoop of raspberry sorbet can be homemade
raspberry rosé sorbet with this Yummly recipe. Don’t forget to garnish your glass with some fresh raspberries on the rim or a mint leaf on top of the sorbet.
@stephaniestoven made this cotton candy cocktail for her Galentine’s, but there’s no reason why you can share some of this sweetness with your partner, too. Partially fill a wine flute with some sparkling wine, then top with a puff of cotton candy and conversation hearts. You can drop in a straw and drink as is, or pour more wine over top to melt the cotton candy right into your drink. Bonus points for cute, themed glasses.
There are actually quite a few cocktails that can be improved with some cotton candy on top, like this
martini recipe from Yummly or cotton candle milkshake shots. All these drinks still fit the Valentine’s Day theme thanks to their cute pink color. 08 Valentine’s Day Moscow Mule
Give your Moscow Mule a makeover with this
Valentine’s Day Mule recipe from @jennifervalentyne. Start by placing ice in your copper mug. Add two shots of vodka, one shot of pomegranate juice, then top off with ginger beer. After you mix it all up, toss in a few pomegranate seeds, then garnish with a few heart-shaped gummy candies and a fresh mint leaf. 09 Red Velvet Espresso Martini
strawberry peach mimosa cocktail recipe by @kwenvern tastes berry sweet with ingredients that are easy to find. Start by filling your glass with heart-shaped pink ice cubes and pouring in a bit of strawberry peach juice. Then, top off with peach sparkling wine. Stir in some edible glitter for a shimmer and you’re good to go.
If you’re a fan of sour drinks, try the
Pink Gin Sour from TikToker @liv.yah. For this Valentine’s version of a gin sour, pink gin as the main ingredient with lemon juice, simple syrup, and egg white. Shake together and pour into your coupe glass with a garnish of edible rose petals on top. Another pink gin drink to try is this pink gin and tonic from Yummly that uses pomegranate juice to give the cocktail its rosey color. 12
Strawberry Stardust Cocktail
Edible glitter really does turn a simple cocktail in an Insta-worthy masterpiece. For instance, this
strawberry stardust cocktail from TikToker @_daniellediaz_ is gorgeous. The drink itself is a simple blend of vodka, strawberry lemonade, and Sprite but looks so bougie with some glitter mixed in. You can also use strawberry syrup and sugar to create a pink rim.
For all the kombucha lovers out there, this
Cupid’s Lemonade from TikToker @maxieelise is a must for your Valentine’s or Galentine’s Day plans. While the exact recipe is for a mocktail, you can make it boozy with hard kombucha. Just add some blended strawberries to the bottom of a glass and throw in some heart-shaped ice cubes made from raspberry lemonade kombucha.
Mix in some edible glitter to your ice cubes for added shimmer, and top off the drink with the rest of your kombucha and sparkling lemonade. Another boozy kombucha option is this
tequila cocktail from Yummly. To make it fit the V-Day theme, garnish with red strawberries and raspberries.
If you vibe with the sweetness, you’ll want to try this
“All Mine” cocktail from TikToker @shenikaa76. This drink is extra sugary with strawberry syrup, strawberry margarita mix, vanilla vodka, pink Starburst flavoring, and prosecco. There’s even a sugary rim made with frosting and Valentine’s Day sprinkles. It’s like a dessert in a glass.
Barbiecore isn’t going anywhere this year, especially with the
later this year. For a Barbie movie coming out pink-ish drink inspired by Malibu Barbie, you’ll want to make this cocktail from TikToker @dioandiris. Mix together Malibu rum, pineapple juice, vodka, and grenadine before pouring into a glass.
As you’re sipping, you and your partner will feel like you’re sitting by the pool on a tropical vacay. The recipe is also very reminiscent of this
Malibu Sunset drink from Yummly minus the fruit garnish. Don't miss a thing
