Red Cocktail for Valentine’s Day

I’ve created this gorgeous red cocktail with some of my favorite flavors. They blend so well together you’re going to want to mix this up all year long. The color lends itself well to Christmas and 4th of July parties in addition to Valentines day ideas.

This cocktail has only 3 ingredients and you might even have them on hand already. It’s a little sweet with the undeniable flavor and aroma of Amaretto. And the blend with vodka is smooth.

Whether you’re sipping this with your romantic love or celebrating single-hood with your besties, this “Sweetheart” cocktail will hit the spot. 

Mix these up in a cocktail shaker with ice so they’re nice and cold. Then garnish with a marshmallow heart on the side of the glass for the perfect garnish.

These heart-shaped chocolate garnishes would also be terrific on the rim of the glass.
