To help you celebrate any romantic occasion, we’ve concocted a list of drinks that you’ll love even more than the person you spend it with. Enjoy!
1. The Sharable Drink
Scorpion Bowls aren’t exactly what you think of as a romantic drink, but since you can share it, it seems pretty lovey dovey to me. And you can always add more straws if you’re into that sort of thing. Recipe: Jeff Mauro’s Scorpion Bowl
2. The Champagne Drink
You’re classic fancy pants bubbly with a twist. Literally. Just a dash of bitters, 1 sugar cube, and a lemon twist in your favorite champagne will make you realize how lucky your S.O. is to be with you. Recipe: Epicurious’ Classic Champagne Cocktail
3. The Red/Pink Drink
It there’s a time to drink some red and fruity, it’s today. But to make it a little less lame and little more yum, we’ve serving up The Love Bite. It’s a layered shot that tastes like an orange/cherry creamsicle with a kick. Recipe: The Love Bite Shot
4. The Chocolatey Drink
Coffee liqueur, Irish Cream, Crème de cacao, and Grand Marnier make for one delicious way to top off the night. To top off your drink, and your date, use whipped cream, chocolate sauce, and a cherry. Recipe: Chocolate Coffee Kiss
5. The On Fire Drink
If Valentine’s Day isn’t going your way, try this cocktail. It’ll give you a buzz and the name will make you smile. Recipe: Flaming A**hole
