Drink up!

Valentine’s Day. Some love it, some loathe its existence. No matter which side you are on, I think drinks play a big part of the day. Now, you might be drowning your sorrows while watching Notebook, crying and petting your cat, but why not do it in style? Yes, we all know that you are independent and don’t need anybody to tell you otherwise! Good for you! But, fancy drinks will brighten your day. In fact, you can always throw an “Awesome Drinks” themed party! Any reason to put together a gathering including alcohol and good company, is good enought for me! Here are some of my absolute favorite recipes! You can use one for everyone or if you like variety, mix it up!

1) Peach Pink Lemonade

I want it now! Pink and fabulous and the ingredients you will need are:

  • 1 oz citrus vodka
  • ½ oz peach schnapps
  • Crystal Light Pink Lemonade
  • Crushed Ice
  • Rocks glass

2. Blue Hawaii Cocktail

Ok, almost anything blue has a great taste! Yummy! Imagine holding this at your party! Everybody is going to be impressed! I give it a 10/ 10, especially if you like:

  • 1 oz rum
  • 1 oz vodka
  • 1 oz blue curacao
  • 3 ozs pineapple juice
  • ½ oz sweet and sour
  • Fresh pineapple cubes and maraschino cherries for garnish

 

3. Strawberry & Mango Margarita

Strawberries and mango are combined for this gorgeous alcoholic beverage. You could make it if you have:

  • 1 1/2 cups frozen mango chunks
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen strawberries
  • 1/3 cup sugar (more if needed)
  • 1 1/4 cups tequila
  • 1 cup triple sec
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/2 cups ice (more if needed)

4. Kahlua Mudslides

Ok, I know it has alcohol, but this cocktail reminds me of childhood’s milkshakes! The ingredients that you need:

  • 1 part Kahlúa
  • 1 part vodka
  • ½ part Irish cream liqueur
  • 1 part ice cream
  • ice (crushed is best)
  • chocolate syrup and whipped cream for serving (optional)

5. Fireball Cider Bomb Cocktail

You don’t need to cuddle to warm up on this Valentine’s day! All you need is this beautiful fireball cocktail, that will turn heads for sure! Needed for this one:

  • Ice Cubes (approximately 4 or 5 ice cubes)
  • 2 ounces Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey
  • 3 ounces apple cider
  • Apple slices

6. Sex on the Driveway

I mean, the name sells itself! Insert inappropriate joke here. Absolute favorite and it reminds me of beach, sand and sunshine!

If you have no plans with your other half, you can always have fun trying them out and get a nice date out of it. If nothing else works out, get some bubbly and call it a day, dear! Maybe call a friend, have a spa day at home and laugh out loud! Your dog is always a great choice for some awesome time! He will never let you down, or spill the beans on how much you’ve had!dog

Always, drink with caution and don’t drive, if you decide to! If you have a moment, follow me on FacebookPinterest and Twitter.

Stay fashionable,
