    Valentine’s Day homemade cocktails

    Valentine s Day homemade cocktails (2)

    Valentine’s Day is typically one of the busiest nights of the year for restaurants and bars.

    Not being one for crowded places on what is supposed to be a quiet romantic evening, I’ve compiled this list of Valentine’s Day-themed drinks you can make at home.

    RED VELVET CAKE MARTINI

    This is a great break from the boring-yet-classic martini. Picture this: You’ve just finished a scrumptious, home-cooked meal. What’s for dessert? Booze! And it’s delicious.

    • 5 ounces Whipped Cream Vodka
    • 5 ounces Creme De Cocoa
    • 1 tablespoon Red Velvet Cake Mix
    • 6 ounces milk
    • 1 Ice Cube
    • Cream cheese icing for garnish (optional)

    LOVE MARTINI

    What’s the difference between “like” and “love”? Some say alcohol. This Love Martini is a little more involved, but it’s made with common, easy-to-find ingredients that won’t cost you a lot of money.

    • \¾ ounce Malibu Rum
    • ¾ ounce Peach Schapps
    • ¾ ounce Citron Vodka or plain vodka
    • 5 ounces cranberry juice
    • Strawberries (optional)
    • Lime wedge (optional)
    • Sugar for rim garnish (optional)

    Blend ingredients in a shaker and shake gently.

    BERRY PUNCH

     The holiday doesn’t have to be all about booze (though it often helps some of us get through it). This is a sweet and refreshing beverage that both kids and adults can enjoy. This drink is cheap, but requires a little extra preparation.

    • 24 ounces frozen raspberries
    • ¼ cup sugar
    • 6 ounces frozen strawberry lemonade concentrate, thawed
    • 1 bottle Sprite or 7-Up
    • Ice
    • Frozen sorbet
    • Strawberries for garnish (optional)

    Heat the raspberries and sugar in a saucepan on medium heat for about five minutes. Refrigerate the puree for two hours. Once properly chilled, combine the puree, strawberry lemonade concentrate and soda in a large pitcher over ice. Add a few scoops of sorbet. Garnish with strawberries.
