20+ Lovely Cocktails to Make for Valentine’s Day

You can’t go wrong with these delicious drinks.

If you’re a dessert lover, you can’t beat the chocolate truffle martini.

But if you prefer something sweet and crisp, try a vodka soda with raspberry and lime!

Just muddle some fresh raspberries in a glass, add raspberry vodka and fresh lime juice, and then top it off with soda water.

Finally, garnish it with heart-shaped watermelon. Aren’t they adorable?!

Love is in the air – and in your glass – thanks to these tempting tipples!

1. Love Potion #9

As far as Valentines alcohol drinks go, I think “Love Potion #9” is the most iconic.

This aptly-named cocktail is a magical treat for starry-eyed lovers.

One sip and you’ll be madly in love with the deliciously creamy blend of berries, vanilla ice cream, vodka, and white crème de cacao liqueur.

2. Sparkling Cranberry Sangria

Bubbly and bright, this tart cocktail is just what you need to rev up the romance.

It’s bursting with juicy flavor, thanks to a generous helping of fresh fruit and cranberry juice.

Add some red wine and brandy and you’ve got a kick in a glass. Top it up with club soda and a sprinkling of cinnamon – this festive blend is party-ready!

Mint Grapefruit Mimosa

3. Mint Grapefruit Mimosa

Sweet mint, tangy grapefruit – celebrate your love as a couple with a couple of great flavors.

Sparkling Prosecco and a hint of honey round out this deceptively complex cocktail. 

Add a glass of this to your breakfast-in-bed plans and you might need a nap!

4. Sweetheart Cocktail

Don’t give your love a bouquet of roses this Valentine’s Day. Serve them one in a cocktail.

Made with vodka, cranberry juice, lime juice, and rose petals, this is a fun and floral way to impress that special someone.

So lower the lights, put on a love song, and stir it up!

5. Kir Royale

There’s no better way to woo your beloved than with a fizzy, fruity kir royale.

This elegant cocktail is made with champagne and French berry liqueur. Simply swirl the two together and add a fresh raspberry for garnish. It’s that easy!

If you’re not sure what liqueur to use, Chambord or Creme de Cassis are great picks. They’ll add a hint of fruit that’s sweet without being sickly.

6. Besame Cocktail 

Besame is a Spanish word, meaning “kiss me,” and kisses are highly recommended after this smooth tipple.

It’s made with a Spanish favorite – Agavero, a tequila-based liqueur flavored with agave.

The sweet Agavero is beautifully balanced with zesty passion fruit juice, raspberries, lime, and a splash of raspberry liqueur.

7. Strawberry Shortcake Daiquiri

If your idea of romance is dessert in a glass, you’ll find your happy-ever-after in this recipe.

Made with fresh strawberries, it’s fresh and sweet. The shortcake taste comes from vanilla-scented whipped cream vodka and creamy almond milk. 

Coconut rum gives it a tropical twist and the end result is simply heavenly.

8. Scarlett Kiss

Daring and different, this wickedly good cocktail is perfect for parties.

It’s made with Drambuie whiskey for a powerful kick and rounded out with tart cranberry juice. Simple but satisfying, this is a keeper. 

Grab yourself a handsome stranger and get mixing!

9. Mary Pickford

Mary Pickford was a beloved silver screen star who made her fortune in the old Hollywood era of silent movies.

Her namesake cocktail is as glamorous as she was. And it’ll make you feel like a movie star with its fruity mix of grenadine, light rum, and pineapple juice.

10. Cupid’s Arrow

Here’s another fun drink with a festive Valentines cocktail name.

Cupid is too young to drink, of course, but if he were of legal age he’d definitely be trying this recipe.

Filled with berries and sprinkled with chocolate shavings, this is a gorgeous Valentine’s treat.

To mix, simply stir together vodka, blood orange liqueur, orange juice, fresh lemon juice, lemon lime soda, and sugar. 

If you really want to impress, dip the rim of the glass in red sugar crystals and serve over ice.

11. Chocolate Truffle Martini

If you can’t decide between chocolates and booze this Valentine’s, do both!

You’ll get all the taste of truffles in this chocolate martini, made with vanilla vodka, white chocolate cream liqueur, and cream.

Go big when you’re serving this one. Decorate the glass with white chocolate shavings and/or coconut flakes for an impressive dessert/drink.

12. Grapefruit Mojito

Morning mojitos are a crucial part of Valentine’s Day celebrations (or is that just me?!).

And you can’t get much better than this tart twist on the classic cocktail.

It’s a vibrant and refreshing blend of freshly squeezed grapefruit juice, fresh mint leaves, and white rum.

13. Passion Cocktail

This drink is subtle but strong, so be warned, it packs a punch.

Made with tequila and brandy-based orange liqueur, this is a cocktail with lots of flavor and depth. It’s rounded out with zesty lime and tart cranberry. 

Shake it up, pour it out, and snuggle up!

14. Cosmopolitan

Everyone should know how to make a classic cosmo. It’s practically a life skill.

Because this mix of fruit juice, vodka, and Cointreau is welcome any time. Birthdays, Valentine’s, parties, or an afternoon brunch with friends.

This cocktail celebrates love in all its forms!

15. Chocolate Old Fashioned

Flowers, Valentine’s Day cards, love poems – if you’re an old-fashioned romantic, add this cocktail to that list.

It’s made with chocolate and bourbon for an unforgettable smoky taste and rich depth. 

Add orange bitters, decorate with chocolate pieces, and you’ll have a gorgeous drink that works for Valentine’s Day, Christmas, Thanksgiving, and any other time you need a fun drink.

16. Chocolate Covered Strawberry Shooters

Planning a singles party for Valentine’s Day? Why not serve some flirty shooters to break the ice?

These dessert-like shots taste like chocolate strawberry pudding, but with an adults-only buzz.

17. Lovebug Cocktail

Made with just 4 ingredients, this would be a great last-minute gift if you forgot Valentine’s Day.

Simply stir together cranberry juice, vodka, and grenadine, and all will be forgiven!

18. Bourbon Cherry Old Fashioned

This cozy cherry cocktail is summery and smooth.

It’s loaded with bright cherry flavors, underpinned with rich bourbon. 

Strawberry Margarita

19. Strawberry Margarita

Inspired by the Texas Roadhouse classic cocktail, this margarita is full of Southern flavor.

Tequila, Triple Sec, frozen strawberries, and frozen limeade – this is an icy, smoothie-style drink that’s irresistibly sweet.

20. Pink Gin and Tonic

Pretty in pink, these light and refreshing cocktails are ideal for a Valentine’s Day brunch.

They’re a sparkling blend of pink gin, tonic water, and a splash of lime.

Choose a good quality gin to really get the delicate botanical undertones and delicate herbal flavor.

21. Bellini

The first Bellini was supposedly served in 1948 and from that day to this, the drink has remained a party favorite.

It’s easy to see why. This pink drink, made with peach puree and prosecco, is elegant and delightfully delicious.

22. Cupid’s Panties

This amusingly-named recipe is a pink shot, perfect for passing around at Valentine’s parties.

Tequila rose and white chocolate liqueur are stirred together, poured into a shot glass, and topped with a heaping of fluffy whipped cream. 

23. Soulmate Martini

Celebrate your soulmate with this punchy cocktail that’s fruity, fizzy, and very flavorful.

It’s made with two types of rum for a fiery kick. Mix together vanilla rum, razz rum, black cherry juice, and top it off with a splash of cola. 

Enjoy with girlfriends, serve to your sweetie, or use this recipe as an excuse to throw a party. This delicious drink loves a celebration!

    • Hi Barbara! That’s a simple vodka soda with raspberries. Here’s my recipe:

      1. Muddle (crush) 4-5 fresh raspberries in the bottom of a glass.
      2. Add 1-2 ounces of raspberry vodka and 1 ounce of fresh lime juice.
      3. Top the glass up with ice and soda water (or lemon lime soda if you want it sweeter).

      For the garnish, just cut a thin slice of watermelon and then free-cut a heart with a knife or use a cookie cutter.

      Hope you enjoy it!
