The cool thing about Valentine’s Day is… wait. What I meant to say was… the cool thing about drinking is that you don’t have to have a significant other to enjoy it! The truth is, I think Valentine’s Day is lame. I’ve never celebrated it like normal girls with boyfriends do. I don’t ask for flowers (because I’ll kill them) or chocolate (because I’ll eat the entire box in one sitting) or jewelry (because if it’s expensive, I’ll lose it). I like buying things for myself. I feel accomplished and I know I won’t have to secretly return it and then come up with a lie about why I don’t have it anymore. It’s less stressful that way.
And Valentine’s Day is so stressful. Not for me, of course. But for people who are trying to buy the perfect gift and book the perfect reservation for their loved one. Or for the people who don’t have a significant other and are convinced they will be forever alone.
Relax, guys. It’s not that serious.
I have the perfect solution to your Valentine’s Day woes. It won’t get you the greatest gift or make you the best boyfriend or girlfriend ever, but it’ll get you tipsy enough to forget about it!
Drink #1: Sweet, but tart and completely delicious.
Muddle strawberries in the bottom of a glass.
Use Pinnacle Strawberry Kiwi. Honestly, SO good. Add a splash of sprite and fill the rest with lemonade. (I used Crystal Light). To make this drink pink, use pink lemonade.
I garnished it with an orange to fancy it up a little. This one is amazing and I can drink multiples of them without having a sugar overload. It might be because after a few I don’t notice it, but who cares?
Drink #2: Think of Funfetti cake in drink form. Yeah. I know.
I made a version of this on NYE and wrote about it, but this time I gave it a little twist.
You will need: Pinnacle Cake Vodka (YUM), Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur, Silk Almond Milk, Rose’s Grenadine, and SPRINKLES.
Mix everything except the sprinkles into a shaker. I went heavy on the vodka and used about equal parts of the Godiva and the Silk. Do not use more than a couple drops of grenadine.
Then, I made it prissy and added sprinkles.
Ready for a taste test!
A little day drinking never hurt anyone…
Pretty excited about this one… Delightful and lovely.
So whip up one of these and take a deep breath.
