No Valentine’s Day is complete without a proper cocktail. No matter if it’s a date night, girl’s night or even a cozy night at home, a festive Valentine’s Day cocktail makes any Valentine’s night complete. I will obviously opt for the tequila choice, but I found some really delicious recipes using Vodka and Rosé as well! Bottoms up, baby!
1½ oz tequila (Casamigos of course)
1 oz Amaro Lucano
¾ oz Strawberry Liqueur
¾ oz Lemon Juice
Add some ice.
Shake to destroy the anger in your heart – Or to fill it. Whichever you decide, shake until it’s good and cold.
Pour and strain into your martini glass.
Garnish with a strawberry.
Now go get bitter, or be happy, either way, it’s a damn fine cocktail.
