What could warm you up in the coldest month of the year better than the cozy feeling of being in love? With Valentines Day right around the corner, we thought it was only right that we celebrate the most romantic cocktails – and if you are single and ready to mingle, these pretty beverages are sure to get your heart pumping!
 

Red Lotus

Red is the colour of love and lychee is thought to be an aphrodisiac, making this the perfect valentines day blend. Lovely and simple to create, this irresistible mix of vodka, lychee liqueur and cranberry juice is also extremely easy to drink, so your loved one is sure to love it.

 

Love Potion #9


The cupid of cocktail land, Love Potion #9 is the drink to prepare for any potential sweethearts, since they are certain to fall in love with your innovative cocktail skills and great taste in beverages. Try making it with your choice of flavoured vodka and combining it with crème de cacao, vanilla ice cream and frozen strawberries and then warm your partner up with a great big hug!

 

Bésame

The Spanish word for ‘kiss me’, the Bésame cocktail takes the hard work out of propositioning your amor. Just make them one of these fruity concoctions and they will know exactly what is on your mind.  Perhaps they will also appreciate the work that has gone into making this mix of tequila, fruit juice and Chambord, so you might get the kiss you’ve been waiting for.

 


Valentine Martini

 A martini with a valentines twist, this fruity take on the much-loved classic is definitely one to treat your significant other to. The traditional recipe is followed using raspberry flavoured vodka instead of the usual clear vodka, along with sugar syrup, lime juice and a cute raspberry garnish.

 

Choco Cherry Kiss


Nothing says ‘I love you’ like a little chocolate garnish, and this unique cocktail is one that will tantalize the taste buds and leave your partner wanting more. It requires a little bit of effort – first you have to create the black tea-sugar mixture and then combine it with vodka, cherry brandy, cream and ice. Once topped with chocolate and cinnamon, this is a drink that will impress even the most dismissive of companions.

Whatever you choose to create this Valentines Day, we hope you enjoy a day full of love, kisses and romance.

Bartender's top tip

Bitters can add depth and complexity to your cocktails, acting like the "spices" of the drink world. A few dashes can transform a simple drink into something far more sophisticated. Experiment with different brands and flavors of bitters, ranging from the classic Angostura to more exotic options like orange, chocolate, or celery bitters.
