GARNISHING_TIPS

What are some engaging garnishing tips for Be my Valentine cocktail to enhance its appearance?

For the Be my Valentine cocktail, consider garnishing with a skewer of fresh raspberries or a cherry for a pop of color and to echo the flavors of the cherry and raspberry liqueur.

NON_ALCOHOLIC_VARIATIONS

How can I make a non-alcoholic version of the Be my Valentine cocktail?

To create a non-alcoholic version of Be my Valentine, substitute the cherry and raspberry liqueurs with cherry and raspberry juice or syrup respectively.
