Opting to avoid the crowds (and the pre-fixe prices) at restaurants this Valentine’s Day? We’re with you. But while you may be tempted to focus all your time on the cooking and just serve wine, putting a little extra effort into the drinks will make an at-home affair all the more special. We’ve scoured our cookbooks for the most creative Valentine’s Day cocktails around. Here are 3 showstoppers.
- Going classic? Try the Kir Royale from Sheila Lukins’ Celebrate!.
- Looking to spice things up? Try the Cherry Kissing Cordial from Stephanie L. Tourles Making Love Potions.
- How about sampling something with a sweet backstory? Try the ‘I Do‘ cocktail from David Solmonson and Lesley Jacobs Solmonson’s The 12 Bottle Bar.
