4 Valentine's Day Cocktail Recipes

It’s Valentine's Day weekend (aka family day weekend) and although Valentine’s day isn’t until Sunday, we will be filling the whole weekend with love themed activities. This year we want to focus specifically on self-love… something many of us too often forget about. 

Take a few minutes this weekend to prioritize yourself… sit down, relax and maybe enjoy a tasty drink. We tested out some fun love themed cocktails, perfect for kicking off your love-filled weekend! Check out the recipes below.

 

Pucker Up

2 oz tequila
1 oz agave (more or less to your liking)
1 oz fresh lime juice
splash of raspberry lemonade
small handful of fresh raspberries for garnish

    Add ingredients to a shaker with ice and shake for 10-15 seconds. Pour into a glass with fresh ice and add raspberries for garnish! If you prefer a smoother drink, add the raspberries into the shaker with the other ingredients and don’t add garnish.
