Valentine's Day is a fun holiday to spend with your spouse, a love interest, or even your best gal pal. While a festive dinner might be your go-to plan for an enjoyable evening, you don't want to forget about the drinks you'll serve with it, too. After all, a creative cocktail list can be the best part of the night when special occasions roll around! Delicious drinks can also add a splash of cheer to a relaxing, low-key night if that's what you'd rather have. Instead of going to a fancy (and probably over-priced) restaurant that you'd have to make reservations for weeks in advance, we recommend trying a few of your own fancy cocktails at home.
If you're torn on where to begin when mixing up some Valentine's Day sips, look no further. From a delicate sparkling punch made with a pretty pink rosé, tasty red wine, and plenty of cut-up fruit, to a dainty cocktail made with cherry limeade, these date-night recipes are unique yet easy to make — even if you're a newbie to hosting cocktail night at your place. Each of these drinks will also pair perfectly with any sweet snacks you whip up for the sweethearts in your life.
Whether you're having an intimate night with your partner or treating yourself to some relaxation alone, sipping on these scrumptious yet simple cocktail recipes will totally hit the spot!
