Cupid’s Cocktails

Art of the Cocktail, Beer & Cocktails, Drink, Holidays

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I wanted to honor the “holiday of love” with a few of Cupid’s favorite cocktails. When it comes to the most romantic day of the year, two colors come to my mind: pink and red.


The color pink represents both femininity and delicate charm. To make your evening blush, I have two suggestions – the “Tickled Pink” cocktail which blends gin with some Angostura bitters and a refreshing rosé spritzer.


Fiery and flamboyant, red is a color that incites passion. Make a flute of Champagne go rouge with a couple dashes of rose syrup, creating a fragrantly festive and boldly hued concoction. This February, show your sweetie how you feel by mixing up one of the below cocktails. Cheers!


Tickled Pink Cocktail


This drink will get you thinking pink!


2 ounces gin

3 to 4 dashes Angostura bitters


Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Shake well and then strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Serves 1.


Rosé Spritzer


This wine-centric cocktail says “I love you” with style.


4 ounces rosé wine

4 ounces sparkling water


Mix wine and sparkling water together over ice. Pour into a wine glass and serve. Serves 1.


Rosy Champagne Cocktail


This cocktail is sure to induce scarlet fever!


4 ounces Champagne

2 to 3 dashes rose syrup


Pour champagne into flute. Add a couple splashes of rose syrup and enjoy! Serves 1.
