Chocolate Covered Cherry Martini

Chocolate-covered cherries, but make it swanky. This drink is perfect for those who have a sweet tooth and love chocolate-covered anything. Decadent and sweet, it’s the best romantic nightcap.

You’ll need the following:

Strawberry Margarita

A romantic twist on a classic marg. We’re talking strawberries, people. Nothing says romance quite like strawberries, and this recipe combines them with the classic margarita for a drink that’s both delicious and delightful. 

You’ll need the following: 

Dust off that blender and add the tequila, triple sec, lime juice, and strawberries. Mix until completely smooth, and then pour into a salt-rimmed glass. For garnish, add one strawberry to the glass for an extra touch of sweetness. 

Passion Fruit Martini

Yes, another martini. Why? Martinis are fast, boozy, and usually packed with a ton of flavor. This passion fruit martini is perfect for setting the romantic mood for the evening. Who doesn’t love a bit of fruity sweetness on their lips? 

You’ll need the following: 

  • 2 oz of vodka
  • 1 oz of passion fruit puree
  • 1 oz of orange liqueur
  • 1 oz of freshly squeezed lemon juice 
  • Ice
  • Cocktail shaker
  • Passion fruit slice for garnish (optional)

Get out that cocktail shaker and combine the vodka, passion fruit puree, orange liqueur, lemon juice, and ice. Shake well until all the ingredients are properly mixed. Once mixed, pour and strain into a chilled martini glass. And if you’re feeling fancy, try a passion fruit slice to add a touch of extra sweetness to the drink. 

Raspberry Champagne Cocktail

No more martinis, I promise. Champagne is used to celebrate almost anything, and for a good reason. It’s light and bubbly, and you feel fancy with a glass in your hand. So why not use champagne as an ingredient to celebrate love? Celebrate your love with a sip of this sweet and effervescent cocktail. 

You’ll need the following: 

Pour the chilled champagne into the flute glass. Gently stir in the raspberry liquor and lemon juice to mix the cocktail. Be gentle, as carbonated drinks like champagne can bubble up and spill over the top. To make it sweeter, add a couple of raspberries to the drink. A drink and a snack in one, we love to see it. 

Whether you prefer sweet, sour, or tropical flavors, a cocktail on this list will suit your taste buds and help you set the mood for however you like to celebrate the big V-day. There is no right way to celebrate love of any kind, but you sure as hell can make a cocktail to embrace the day. So grab your loved one, friends, or yourself, mix up a drink, and enjoy a night of indulgence. It’ll be romantic no matter what.
