Cocktails are not (only) about getting wasted and having a good time; they’re about enjoying a drink with your special someone and showing them how much you care about them. If you want to make this Valentine’s Day extra special for your significant other, there are some cocktails that will do just that!

Here are some classic cocktails that will make great Valentine’s Day drinks:

  • The Old Fashioned: This classic drink uses whiskey along with bitters and sugar to give it its unique flavor. It’s also perfect because if you’re too lazy to make anything fancy, this is one of those drinks where you can just dump everything together in a glass without worrying or measuring anything correctly!
  • The Manhattan: This cocktail is perfect for the person that loves whiskey but also wants something a little bit sweet. A Manhattan uses bourbon along with sweet vermouth to create a mixture that’s both fruity and alcoholic.
  • The Cosmopolitan: Ideal for those looking to try something new. It uses vodka along with cranberry juice and lime juice to create a delicious mixture that’s sweet, sour, and tangy all at once.
  • The Sidecar: This cocktail is perfect for those looking for something a little bit sweet. It uses brandy along with lemon juice and simple syrup to create a mixture that’s fruity and sweet, but also alcoholic at the same time!
  • The Bloody Mary: Perfect for those that want something… unique. It uses vodka along with tomato juice, lemon juice, and horseradish to create a weird, yet unforgettable mixture.

These are just some quick examples of classic cocktails that can be made for any type of celebration. But if romance is what you’re looking for, then scroll down to the end of the article to find my suggestions for sweet, love-inspired cocktails for Valentine’s Day that will definitely impress your partner!

Cocktails are a great idea for a few reasons. First, they’re simple to make and fun to drink. The second reason is that most people enjoy finding new ways to celebrate their relationships with their partners, which is exactly what Valentine’s Day is all about. Last but not least, the third reason why cocktails are such a great idea for Valentine’s Day is that they offer an opportunity for couples to relax after work or school and get creative in the kitchen together!

Cocktails are such a great way to set the mood—and they’re also an easy way to introduce your partner to new flavors. Whether you’ve been together for years or just met, cocktails are a great way to get creative and have fun. Making them at home is easy (even if you’ve never done it before), so why not make some for Valentine’s Day? Plus, if you plan ahead and make them in advance, all your work will be done!

I tried to include various types of cocktails and drinks for all tastes and preferences, so I’m convinced you’ll find something to love there. And something fit to celebrate love, too!

Happy Valentine’s Day! 🙂
