I can’t believe it’s already getting close to Valentine’s Day. That’s just crazy talk to me. Based on all the Valentine’s pitches I’ve been receiving, however..it’s hard to deny the fact that another year is in full swing.
My husband and I never celebrate days like Sweetest Day or Valentine’s Day. He’ll tell you it’s because every day is a day of love in our house. I just gag. Okay, I’m kidding, I don’t gag. Things are great. I have to say though, I don’t mind missing out on Sweetest Day because it’s just a gimmick to me. But Valentine’s Day? I mean..c’mon! It’s VALENTINE’S DAY! A day of romance, love and all that pretty swirly girlie stuff. It’s part of our princess marriage wish package, right?
So, no presents. I get that. But, why not a yummy drinkipoo? Or three? I think I’ll be checking these drinks out and not necessarily just on Valentine’s Day. They happen to sound delish which is why I decided to share with you people. Let’s mix up some and meet online, those of us who don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day. We can have a virtual drink and love-fest.
These 3 drink recipes use Cascade Ice Water but I’m sure another equivalent will do nicely. I was, however, sent these lovely recipes via the PR company that handles Cascade. They were so pretty and yummy sounding that I really did have to share. I know, I can’t believe I did that either.
Passion Pucker-Up Cocktail: Mix up this tantalizing drink by pouring 1.5oz of tequila and 3oz of Cascade Ice Black Raspberry over crushed ice into your mixer. Next, add the juice of a lime wedge and a handful of raspberries. Garnish the cocktail with an orange wedge and serve!
Blushing Sparkler: Mix 1oz of whipped vodka, 4oz of Cascade Ice Pink Grapefruit the juice of a lemon wedge and a handful of ice in a mixer. Pour the cocktail into a chilled glass and garnish with lemon wedges.
Personally, I think I’ll check out the Pucker Up cocktail, it had me at tequila. I mean..hello!
