101 Alcoholic Valentine’s Day Cocktails

If you’re in the market for a boozy beverage that really stands out from the crowd, I think you’re going to really love this list. There’s a little something for everyone, including gin, vodka, bourbon, champagne, a mix of different drinks at once, and so much more.

Feel free to use the drop-down table of contents above to skim over the drinks and find the ones that tickle your pickle!

1: Love Potion 9

By Best Day of the Week

If you like a gin sour, you’re going to love Love Potion 9, which is a new take on the classic drink. With pomegranate juice, simple syrup, egg whites, lemon juice, and – of course – gin, it’s definitely a pink drink made for the romantic occasion.  

2: Raspberry Slow Gin Fizz Cocktail

By Mighty Mrs.

Valentine’s Day cocktails like this one are suitable for a range of other occasions than just Valentine’s Day. This one would fit in right at home on the table at Valentine’s Day as it would at Christmas, or at any other time of the year! It’s all about the decorations. Don’t forget the love-themed decorations!

3: Pink Love

By Tipsy Bartender

It’s pink, there is literal love in the name, and it’s packed with some of the sweetest treats, including coconut rum, Crème de banana, pineapple juice, raspberry purée, cream of coconut, fresh raspberries, coconut shavings, and whipped cream.

This boozy treat is essentially a dessert in a glass. What’s not to love about that?

4: Pink Señoritas

By Delish

Described as the traditional margarita’s sassy sister, this pink treat takes out the limes and replaces them with lemon juice and pink lemonade. Colour-wise, it fits the Valentine’s Day theme perfectly. If you want to make it even more on-theme, don’t forget to add a few love-inspired decorations!

5: La Vie en Rose

By Empress Gin

I’m bringing in a little touch of purple to go along with the reds and pinks in this list of alcoholic Valentine’s Day cocktails – and what a hint of purple it is! With Empress 1908 gin, soda water, lemon juice, rose water, cardamon pods, simple syrup, rose petals, and cardamon sugar, it’s probably a drink you’ll need to go shopping for, but it’ll be well worth the work!

6: Yagiz Turkish Delight Cocktail

By Polka Dot Wedding

Sweet, simple, and topped with a little candy fluff or floss or whatever you call it in your part of the world – that’s what this Valentine’s Day cocktail idea brings to the table.

Recreating the sweet taste of Turkish delight, you’ll need either regular or petal-infused Hendricks gin, crème de cacao, vanilla syrup, lemon juice, rose syrup, egg white, and, of course, candy fluff. The last ingredient is optional, but it sure looks cute!

7: Peach Bourbon Smash

By Recipes From a Pantry

Listen, no one said your Valentine’s Day cocktails had to be pink or red in colour. You can have whatever colour of cocktail you like; you’re celebrating it, after all!

Whether you’re celebrating with a loved one, many loved ones, or just by yourself, have a great time. And enjoy a cocktail or two while you’re there!

8: Rum Sunset

By The Cocktail Society

I’ve always found sunset to be one of the most romantic times of the day, especially if you’re in a place where you can watch that big ball of energy go down. That’s why I’ve decided to include this rum sunset drink in my list of Valentine’s Day cocktails. A twist on the classic tequila sunrise, it’s a must-try if you’re a fan of rum!

9: Hanky Panky

By VinePair

Combining gin, sweet vermouth, and Fernet Branca in place of Campari, this saucy little drink is a new twist on the classic Negroni. Bold, full of flavour, and really packing a punch, I reckon this will go down really well if you’re in the market for a big, bold love affair!

10: Iced Peach Bellini

By Baking Beauty

Sometimes, just sometimes, you need to be a big kid, rather than an adult, and treat yourself to what is essentially a boozy slushy. This iced peach Bellini is exactly that – a summer cocktail that is just as appropriate for a romantic occasion, such as Valentine’s Day.

Iced Peach Bellini

11: Gin Daisy

By Craft Gin Club

If you’re in the market for something tart, sweet, sour, and coloured perfectly for Valentine’s Day, this gin daisy cocktail might just tick all your boxes! And as if that wasn’t good enough, you can even switch the gin for other spirits, if gin isn’t quite up your street.

12: Classic Negroni

By VinePair

The classic negorini really packs a punch, mixing together sweet vermouth, Campari, and gin. This colour-appropriate cocktail is a classic but is not to be taken lightly!  

13: Passionfruit Sour

By Best Day of the Week

With the addition of passionfruit simple syrup (homemade), this Valentine’s Day cocktail idea is sweet, tasty, and oh-so-tropical. If you’re wishing for a tropical island getaway this Valentine’s Day, maybe this drink could take you there.

14: Windsor Garden

By Empress Gin

This drink has a royal name, so it must be good enough for the aristocrats themselves, right? That’s the theory I’m going with, anyway. Pretty in pink and nice and light, this one combines simple syrup with naturally purple-coloured Empress 1908 Gin, and fresh lemon juice before being topped up with leaves and sprigs of mint, rosemary, basil, and thyme.

It’s light, fizzy and fabulous – and perhaps just what you need on Valentine’s Day?

15: Cosmopolitan

By Tipsy Bartender

The Cosmopolitan cocktail was featured so much on the infamous show, Sex and the City, that it just doesn’t make sense to miss this boozy beverage out. With citrus vodka, cranberry juice, lime juice triple sec, and a touch of lime peel for garnish, this is one drink you definitely won’t be ghosting!

101 Alcoholic Valentine’s Day Cocktails

16: Jamaican Rum Punch

By Recipes From a Pantry

How do you feel about rum? If you love the stuff, I think you might just like this Jamaican rum punch. You can use this cocktail for a wide number of occasions. The colour makes it suitable for Valentine’s Day but it’s a great spring/summer boozy beverage, too.

What do you think? When would YOU serve up this tasty treat?

17: Strawberry Ginger Pinot Sangria

By Mighty Mrs.

Light, refreshing, summery, and just about perfect for Valentine’s Day, with the addition of strawberries and some romance. This one ticks all of my boxes – but how about you?

18: Greyhound Cocktail

By Ramshackle Pantry

With just ice, grapefruit juice, and gin (preferably fresh), this is one of the easiest pink Valentine’s Day cocktails to make. It’s definitely a pick-me-up, too. The pink grapefruit adds a sharp twist that’ll wake up your senses in no time.

19: French Kiss

By Craft Gin Club

It’s fabulous, fizzy, and oh-so-French, but there are many more reasons to fall in love with this boozy beverage than that. This recipe comes with a bunch of brilliant tweaks, enabling you to make it more and less potent, sweeter, drier, and more.

Follow this one step-by-step, however, and you’ll find this one to be *quite* strong, so make sure you go carefully with it!

20: White Lady

By Cocktail Hammer

It’s not pink, nor is it love-themed, but this white lady cocktail deserves to be on the list of boozy Valentine’s Day cocktails because it’s an absolute classic. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it!

White Lady

21: Magic Boner

By Buzzy Kitchen

Okay, I know this one has a hilarious name, but the name is what makes it perfect for this list of Valentine’s Day cocktails… don’t you think? Made with gin, vodka, triple sec, light rum, grenadine, champagne, and a few more added special ingredients, it’s definitely not one for the light-hearted.

It’s probably recommended just to have one of these. Two if you’re brave!  

22: Strawberry Sweet Tea

By Homemade Hooplah

A poll of people’s spending habits and behaviour over the Valentines Day period showed that fewer people were planning to buy gifts than usual. Only 47.5% of people said they were going to buy gifts, either for themselves or for someone else. That’s a massive decline on the year before — 67% of people planned to buy Valentine’s Day gifts in 2020.

Does buying cocktails for someone class as a gift? Asking for a friend.

23: Classic Kir Royal

By Homemade Hooplah

When 1,900 US adults were asked “Do you believe true love really exists?”, you’ll be happy to learn that 86% of people answered with a resounding YES. The happy-ever-after is alive and kicking, people! I think we should celebrate with a cocktail, what do you think?

24: Raspberry Gin Smash

By Ramshackle Pantry

The name gives the game away with this one, which mixes – as you might’ve guessed – gin, fresh raspberries, mint leaves, simple syrup, crushed ice, and Chambord. Lively, fun, and warming, this is one you’ll want to bring you for all occasions, not just Valentine’s Day!

25: Singapore Sling

By Liquor

The Singapore sling isn’t usually reserved for romantic occasions, but it certainly meets the colour scheme. Maybe it’ll remind you of tropical vacays together and rekindle some spark, who knows?

Singapore Sling

26: Your Favourite Drink + Gold Flakes

Here’s a real great tip: Take your favourite cocktail (or drink), put it in a ‘posh’ or ‘fancy’ glass (as my mother calls them) instead of your regular glasses, then add some gold flakes or similar decorations.

There are so many ‘additions’ you could consider, turning the drink glittery, shimmery, gold-sparkly, and a lot more. It’s a great way to liven up your regular (and somewhat boring) boozy beverage!

Your Favourite Drink + Gold Flakes

27: Sam Ross Sour

By Ramshackle Pantry

You’ve got both sour and sweet elements in this frothy pink cocktail, which combines lemon juice, grenadine, Aperol, gin, and an egg white. It’s the egg white that gives frothy cocktails their frothiness, but it’s not something that everyone enjoys. What are your opinions on it?

28: The Pink Man

By Tipsy Bartender

This drink could just as easily be a superhero as a boozy beverage, and with a name like ‘The Pink Man’, I guarantee everyone will be asking what makes it pink… and man-like.

The answer is quite simple: pink sugar, lime, strawberry lemonade, Kinky Pink liqueur, and raspberry vodka. It sounds like quite the sweet treat, doesn’t it?

29: Lychee and Rose Martini

By Mostly Food and Travel

All you’ll need to make this delicious and love-inspired Valentine’s Day cocktail is lime juice, lychee syrup can juice, lychee vodka, ice, and a few (optional) drops of rose syrup. It looks beautiful, smells delightful, and tastes delicious.

It’s as if this boozy beverage was made for Valentine’s Day!

30: Raspberry Love Potion Cocktail

By Homemade Hooplah

In case you were wondering, just over a quarter of people (28%) would be happy with a “nice dinner out” as their Valentine’s Day gift. You know what means, don’t you? It’s dinner and cocktail time! This cocktail would be just perfect for the occasion if you’re asking for my opinion.

Raspberry Love Potion Cocktail

31: Kiss From a Rosé

By Best Day of the Week

Rose wine seems like such a modern concept, doesn’t it? You might be surprised to learn that it has actually been around since somewhere in the 6th Century BC. Now that’s a very long time!

32: Love Letter Cocktail

By Advanced Mixology

This cocktail isn’t exactly what I’d call easy to make, but it sure will impress the hell out of your date. I’d personally recommend road-testing and practicing complicated Valentine’s Day cocktails like this one, before the big day. Also, make sure you have all the ingredients necessary to make it. Otherwise, that will be an embarrassing disappointment.

33: Rose Gold Gin & Ginger Cocktail

By Imbibe

Ginger is reportedly very good for blood circulation, which is good for men for when they want to get their literal blood pumping! Many cultures and civilisations around the world include ginger I fertility and libido-boosting remedies. You can serve up this ginger-infused drink for the same effect. (Fingers crossed!)

34: Homemade Strawberry Vodka Liqueur

By The Hedgecombers

You could go one step further this Valentine’s Day and MAKE your loved one a gift instead of throwing money at the problem at just buying one. This homemade strawberry vodka liqueur, for example, is super easy to make, can be dressed up or down as much as you like, and can be used in a wide range of alcoholic Valentine’s Day cocktails that everyone will fall in love with.

35: Rosé Lemonade

By Best Day of the Week

If you need a drink that’ll work well with every type of food that you old possibly think of serving up this Valentine’s Day, you can’t go wrong with rose wine. It’s one of those really great all-rounders that works well with most things. An easy choice, some might say.

Rosé Lemonade

36: Raspberry Sparkling Champagne Float

By Modern Farmhouse Eats

Although not technically an aphrodisiac, champagne is one of those boozy beverages that can quickly get you in the mood for love. This is, according to some researchers, because we commonly associate the bubbly drink with celebrations and happy occasions.

37: Sparkling Fig Cocktail

By Barley and Sage

To some people, figs look a little sexual when you cut them in half, which half explains the aphrodisiac nature of them. The fruit contains high levels of amino acids at the same time, though. These amino acids are reportedly linked to increased libido and better stamina. You can sign me right up for this cocktail!

38: Dark Chocolate Martini

By Inside the Rustic Kitchen

Chocolate is not only an aphrodisiac, and therefore a brilliant reason to include a chocolate-based drink on this Valentine’s Day cocktails list, it is also said to trigger feel-good hormones when it is consumed. That only really applies when you’re eating the high-cacao versions though — 75% and above is best.

39: Blushing Lady Cocktail

By The Spruce Eats

Listen up, people. Not only do pomegranate cocktails taste flipping delightful, but they’re also said to help boost libido, too! In fact, the so-called superfood is so packed with good nutrients, antioxidants, and plenty of other good things, you’ll wonder why you weren’t making more pomegranate-based cocktails before!

40: Boozy Grapefruit and Pomegranate Juice

By Jamie Geller

Refreshing, summery, and oh-so-delicious, this vodka-infused grapefruit and pomegranate cocktail is the right colour for a romantically themed cocktail. It’s also so juice-like, you’d almost forget you were drinking alcohol at all.

Boozy Grapefruit and Pomegranate Juice

41: Pink Champagne Margarita

By Tipsy Bartender

It’s pink, and it has champagne, and it’s garnished with pink sugar (if you do it the way the recipe suggests), and it’s been designed for two…

If there was ever such a thing as a perfect Valentine’s Day cocktail, this would surely be it?!

42: Boozy Lavender Lemonade

By Best Day of the Week

Kick your lemonade up a gear with this lavender boozy beauty. Pretty in pink, you’ll need lemonade, vodka, and lavender simple syrup to whip it up, plus a sprig of lavender for garnish, of course.

43: Rhubarb and Flowers Cocktail

By Polka Dot Wedding

Rhubarb might not seem like the sexiest fruit in the world, but it certainly adds a little extra something to a drink, especially a boozy one. That’s why you definitely need to take a closer look at this cocktail idea for the big, romantic day.

44: Floradora

By A Couple Cooks

Mixing together bubbly ginger beer with lime, raspberry, and – the special ingredient – gin, brings you this delightfully pink and wonderfully fizzy cocktail. Floradora is light and bubbly, with just the right amount of floral. I predict you’re going to love it.

45: Red Hot Valentine’s Shot

By The Tipsy Bartender

Cinnamon is said to contain high levels of something called manganese, which some experts believe is closely linked to the male libido So, if you want to literally spice up your life this Valentine’s Day, you’ll want to look for cocktails and/or food that contain it. This red hot Valentine’s Day cocktail, for example.

Red Hot Valentine's Shot

46: Sparkling Black Cherry and Vanilla Bourbon Lemonade

By Margaritas on the Rocks

A very grownup drink with a very pretty-in-pink colour, this sultry beverage is just the thing for a chilly Valentine’s Day celebration. And let’s face it, in February, the U.K. never knows what kind of weather it’s going to get!

47: Amaretto Cranberry Kiss

By Epicurious

If you like amaretto and you also like cranberries, this amaretto cranberry kiss cocktail might just tick all the right boxes for you. You’ll need vodka, cranberry juice, ice, orange juice, amaretto, and oranges for garnish, but it’s super quick and easy to make.

48: Naked and Famous

By A Couple Cooks

I mostly added this boozy beverage to the list of Valentine’s Day cocktails because it had the word ‘naked’ in the name, which might make me a little immature… What do you think? Either way, this sweet yet bitter, citrus-smoky cocktail is a must-try if you’re looking for something a little naughty and different to try this year.  

49: Rosé Sangria

By Best Day of the Week

This one has all the right elements for a delicious and romantic cocktail – grapefruit, raspberries and strawberries, fruit-flavoured sparkling water, grapefruit juice, rhubarb liqueur, and rosé wine. You’ll want to make it a couple of hours in advance, to give it time to chill, but it’ll be well worth the wait!

50: Chocolate and Coffee Martini

By The Cocktail Society

If you’re in the market for Valentine’s Day cocktails that are just as naughty as they are nice, this chocolate and coffee martini is most definitely one to take a closer look at. With chocolate syrup, vodka, coffee liqueur, and Irish cream liqueur (Baileys) and a few coffee beans to garnish, it might just be the thing that pumps some caffeine into your desired one’s heart!

Chocolate and Coffee Martini

51: Pink Elephant

By The Hedgecombers

One of the very best things about this pink, Valentine’s Day-inspired cocktail is that it only requires three ingredients to put together. Yes, you did read that right: three (3) ingredients!

Lovingly throw together vodka, pink lemonade, and a nice slice of lime for a cocktail that tastes so good, you’ll fall right in love with the fizzy bubbles.

52: Old Fashioned

By VinePair

If you’re looking for a love that is old-fashioned and true, much like the fairy tales that we grew up watching, then perhaps the classic Old Fashioned drink will be the right one for you. It’s simple, delicious, and made from a combination of Angostura bitters, bourbon or rye, and a sugar cube. Plus, an ice cube and a twist of orange for garnish, of course.

53: Japanese Thirst Killer

By Epicurious

If you’re feeling thirrrsty this Valentine’s Day, you need the Japanese thirst killer cocktail! It’s definitely the right name for a cocktail at this time of year, don’t you think?

54: Classic Champagne Cocktail

By A Couple Cooks

When polled, one in five Americans said they didn’t want a gift for Christmas, but 30% said it would be nice to at least get a card. Only 13% said they wanted alcohol for Valentine’s Day, which is weird, because everyone I’ve asked in my circle of people have said they want something boozy-boozy this year…

55: Red Aperol Sangria

By Keeping It Simple Blog

This recipe, red in colour and perfect for Valentine’s Day, is one of the easiest, providing you have the ingredients: lemon juice, red wine (Spanish is best), and Aperol. Oh, and don’t forget the slices of orange for garnish, of course!

Red Aperol Sangria

56: Bailey’s Honey Bee

By The Bar

I’m going to be honest, the reason I added this drink to my list of Valentine’s Day cocktails is because I immediately sung “Honey to the bee, that’s you for me,” when I read the name of it. Do you remember that song? It was by Billie Piper, and I listened to it on repeat – on my Sony Walkman – for months.

57: Redheaded Saint

By Epicurious

Are you a redheaded saint? Or you are a redheaded sinner? Not that it matters, this cocktail is good for both good and bad this Valentine’s Day! Fruity, tangy, and with just the right amount of tequila blanco and mezcal, it’ll definitely turn you into a sinner after a few sips!

58: El Diablo

By A Couple Cooks

Let the devil come out to play with this namesake cocktail, made from tequila, crème de cassis, ginger beer, and a little lime juice. It’s sweet and tart, all at once — exactly what I imagine the devil to taste like!

59: La Diabla

By Cantina Rooftop (via Forbes)

And if I’m featuring El Diablo, the male version of the devil, it just makes sense to include the female version, too: La Diabla. Made with smile syrup, lemon juice, crème de peach, and guava purée, it’s definitely a new take on an old classic — and one you’ll never want to end!          

60: French Raspberry Martini

By Ramshackle Pantry

If you’re a fan of Chambord raspberry liqueur, I think you’re going to be a fan of this cocktail. It combines Chambord with pineapple juice and vodka, all shaken up in a shaker (preferably, but a jar will work just as well), served up in a martini glass with a sprig of mint and a couple of raspberries.

French Raspberry Martini

61: Childhood Crush

By Ishrat Kaur – Bartender Atlas

Here’s an interesting question for you to ponder as you sip on this fruity, boozy little cocktail:

Poll: Are you still crushing on your childhood crush?

62: Call Me

By Adriano Crudo – Bartender Atlas

I don’t know about you but I started singing “Call Me, Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepson when I first saw the name of this love-themed cocktail. With matcha syrup, raspberries, lemon juice, green chartreuse, and vodka, it might just contain all the right ingredients for luuuuurve.

63: Blushing Sparkler

By Buzzy Kitchen

It’s pink, fun, and light — the perfect Valentine’s Day boozy beverage to get things started. There are plenty of ways to pimp it up and make the drink more fun, too. Definitely worthy of a moment of your time, if you’re asking for my personal opinion.

64: Woo Woo

By Difford’s Guide

I like the name ‘woo woo’, and it sort-of sounds a bit naughty, don’t you think? Or is that just me? Either way, the red-coloured drink, usually served in an old-fashioned glass, is a mixture of vodka, peach Schnapps, cranberry juice, and optional peach butters.

65: Game, Set & Match

By The Bar

If your loved one bowled you over, game, set and match, then this cocktail is most definitely for you. Mixing cranberry juice, vanilla syrup, strawberries, and the most important ingredient: vodka, it’s definitely a drink you’ll want to last forever.

Game, Set & Match

66: Erik Lorincz’s One Night

By The Bar

Sometimes, just sometimes, you need a Valentine for one night only – and this drink will give them the message! A blend of single malt whiskey, Pimento Dram, lemon juice, sugar syrup, egg white, aromatic bitters, and violet spray, it’s not one you can throw together in a flash, but it will be worth the hard work you put in.

67: Flutter

By Difford’s Guide

If someone’s making your heart all a-flutter this year, maybe this is the right boozy drink for you? It’s not for the faint-hearted, a mix of daiquiri bitters (optional), pineapple juice, espresso coffee liqueur, and tequila. If you like something in the middle of dry and sweet, this one sits right there in the centre of the two.

68: Perfect 10

By Andy Pearson Drinks

If you’ve got vermouth, gin, and a small squeeze of grapefruit juice in your bar at home, you’ve got the right ingredients for a perfect 10, which is a new take on the old’ classic dry martini. Fresh, fun, and definitely a little something new, maybe it’s the right drink to share with someone you’re just newly getting to know this Valentine’s Day?

69: Passion Kiss

By Jamie Geller

Easy to make, quick to whip up, and absolutely delightful for practically every occasion, this passion kiss has the right name – and the right look – for a Valentine’s Day cocktail.

70: Dirty Martini

By The Bar

Maybe this dirty martini drink will lead to a dirty Valentine’s night… who knows? Who wants their drinks to be clean, anyway? I prefer mine as dirty as possible.

Dirty Martini

71: Flame of Love Cocktail

By Andy Pearson Drinks

This drink was reportedly made for none other than Dean Martin, and if it’s good enough for him, then it’s definitely good enough for me. A mix of Fino sherry and vodka, finished off with a flamed orange zest (if you’re brave enough), it’s definitely a show-stopped of a drink!

72: Vanilla Daiquiri

By Difford’s Guide

Vanilla is one of those scents and flavours that most people seem to like, so a vanilla-based cocktail is a failsafe. It’s my failsafe, anyway. The flavour is actually said to have a calming effect on people, and it is commonly used as an aphrodisiac. So yes, this cocktail definitely deserves to be on this list.

73: Blood Orange Ginger Honey Margarita

By Home Cooking Memories

You will need to create or buy ginger honey simple syrup for this lovely-sounding Valentine’s Day drink idea, alongside blood oranges (for the juice), lime, and – the most important ingredient – the tequila. But it sure does sound like a hell of a drink, don’t you agree?

74: Vegan Frothy Aquafina Grapefruit Gin Sour Cocktail

By Top with Cinnamon

Vegan folks can’t usually drink the frothy cocktails on the list, because of the egg white used to create them. This cocktail recipe shows you how to achieve that frothiness without using egg white. In fact, they use an ingredient that I certainly had never thought about using. But how about you? Is this one you’ll be trying for yourself?

75: Rhubarb and Rose Water Gin Spritz

By Buzzy Kitchen

If there’s romance in the air, rose water is definitely the beverage to go for. Well, if you like the taste of rose water, of course. This boozy Valentine’s Day drink combines the floral drink with gin, rhubarb bitters, rhubarb and rose homemade syrup (although you could cheat and buy some), and club soda.

How to Make Rhubarb and Rose Water Gin Spritz

76: Red Pom Cocktail

By Home Cooking Memories

It’s perfectly coloured for a Valentine’s Day event, but that’s not the only thing that’ll make this drink appealing. As well as being sweet and flavoursome, there’s also an ingredient that’ll go down well: rum!

77: Porn Star Martini

By Andy Pearson Drinks

I think it’s pretty safe to say that everyone knows why this drink has made it to the list of Valentine’s Day cocktails, but it’s not just the same that makes this one event appropriate. Okay, maybe it is, but if the boot fits, right?

78: Truly, Madly, Deeply

By Raj Rijhwani – Bartender Atlas

This cocktail was quite literally made for Valentine’s Day, with a mixture of pomegranate and pepper that is out-of-this-world. If you want to impress the crap out of your date this year, and give them a drink they’ll never forget, this might just be the one to choose.

79: Kiss on the Lips

By Midnight Mixologist

If you’re hoping for a kiss on the lips this Valentine’s sDay, maybe you need a cocktail like this one to make it happen. With grenadine, mango juice, and peach schnapps, this is just one way to make the drink. There are plenty of little tweaks and slightly different recipes out there.

80: Paloma

By BBC Good Food

This pretty-in-pale-pink cocktail mixes white tequila (tequila blanco) with pink grapefruit juice, lime juice, agave syrup, and – for the garnish – grapefruit wedges or slices plus a dusting of salt for the rim of the glass. You don’t have to play it that way, of course; you could recreate this tasty treat any way you want!  


81: Chocolate Kiss

By Buzzy Kitchen

Valentine’s Day is traditionally associated with all things love and romance, such as kisses, along with flowers and chocolates. So, this chocolate kiss cocktail is definitely perfect for the occasion. Simply to make and a dream to drink, it’s one I’m definitely going to be drinking all-year-long.

82: Cactus Flower

By Moody Mixologist

This is definitely the right colour for Valentine’s Day cocktails, and with a combination of ginger, mezcal, and melon, it’s most definitely a fruity little number. I could make a joke about being pricked by thorns (and other things), but I’ll let you fill in the blanks. (Sniggers.)

83: Spicy Ruby Red Grapefruit and Jalapeno Cocktail

By Home Cooking Memories

Do you like your Valentine’s Day cocktails with a little bit of spice? Well, this jalapeno-infused drink will definitely up the spice-factor, and with plenty of flavour, you’ll never want it to end!

84: Cranberry Bourbon (Favourite Colour Cocktail – Red)

By Inspired Taste

Here’s an idea: how about making cocktails that reflect your loved one’s favourite colour? In fact, why don’t I make life super easy for you and bring you a cocktail of every single colour. Are you ready for them?

I’m starting with red. This cranberry bourbon cocktail is similar to a cranberry vodka, but it has extra smokiness and sultriness to it that makes it perfect for a hot-under-the-collar occasion.

85: Spicy Blood Orange Margarita Cocktail (Orange)

By VinePair

It’s citrusy, spicy, and delectably moreish – and it’s orange-red in colour. If your loved one’s favourite colour is orange, this drink might tickle their fancy.

Spicy Blood Orange Margarita Cocktail

86: Passion Amore Cocktail (Yellow)

By Andy Pearson Drinks

If your loved one’s favourite colour is yellow, this yellow cocktail is definitely one for you to consider! There’s passion in the name, and passion is the aim of the game, right? (Do you see what I did there?)

87: Arise My Love (Green)

By Cocktail Flow

If there was ever a green cocktail that was made for Valentine’s Day, this one – aptly named ‘Arise My Love’ – has got to be the most perfect of them all. Featuring just two ingredients: champagne and mint liqueur, it’s definitely a refreshing change from the other pink and red cocktails on this list, right?

88: Blue Lagoon (Blue)

By The Bar

As the name suggests, this cocktail is bluer-than-blue, which isn’t traditionally associated with Valentine’s Day, but you can totally make up your own rules. In fact, I thoroughly recommend it! Who said love had to come with rules, anyway?

89: Purple Passion (Purple)

By The Short Order Cook

Another coloured drink with a perfect Valentine’s name, purple passion features apple and grapefruit juice along with sugar syrup and vodka. It’s a nice purple drink with a nice purple name. That’s what I think, anyway. How about you?

90: Valentine’s Day on the Rocks (Pink)

By Cocktail Flow

The name was so perfect, so there was no way I could omit this cocktail from my list of boozy Valentine’s Day cocktails! To recreate this pink drink, you’ll need the following: ginger ale, grenadine, cherry brandy, vodka, and – of course – the ice cubes.

91: Firestarter (Black)

By Buzzy Kitchen

You’d never believe this drink was black from the name, but firestarter, a combination of cola, peach schnapps, vodka, Cointreau, sloe gin, and ice, is practically guaranteed to turn the heat up on Valentine’s night!

92: Screaming Orgasm (White)

By Spin and Shake

Once again, there will be no remarks from me over the name of this one, but if the name doesn’t qualify it for this list of Valentine’s Day cocktails, I really don’t know what does. There are different vibrations of this boozy beverage on the internet, but the one I’ve linked to is my particular favourite.

93: Violette Femme

By Bartender Atlas

This drink is as delicious as it is beautiful, but it’s definitely not one of the easiest on this list to try. With either vodka or gin, Cointreau, an egg white, butterfly pea extract, simple syrup, fresh lemon, and crème de violette, you’ll definitely want to prepare a shopping list. Do you have any of these ingredients in your kitchen?

94: Cherry Vodka Jelly Shots

By Home Cooking Memories

If you’re in the market for fun and fabulous Valentine’s Day cocktails, this jelly shot – also known as Jello-O shots to my American and Canadian friends – will definitely tick some boxes. It’s fun, it’s packed with flavour, and it’s red, which makes it perfectly suited for the romantic occasion.

95: Espresso Martini

If you and your loved one have both worked a long, hard day before getting home to lazily celebrate Valentine’s night, maybe a little injection of caffeine will help. The humble espresso martini is such a classic drink, and it’s suitable for pretty much EVERY occasion!

96: Million Dollar Cocktail

By Andy Pearson Drinks

We all want to feel a million dollars when we’re with our loved ones, don’t we? I know I do. Well, this cocktail might just make you feel exactly that way. With grenadine, sweet vermouth, gin, pineapple juice, an egg white, and a cherry (stemmed) for garnish, it’s definitely a boozy beverage that’ll pack a punch.

97: Between the Sheets

By The Bar

If there was ever a cocktail with a name designed specifically for a romantic (or naughty) occasion, this drink would surely be it? Bursting with citrus flavours, but warming at the same time, you’ll need Captain Morgan Original Spiced Gold along with brandy, lemon juice, orange liqueur, and a little lemon zest.

It’s punchy, between the sheets!

98: Pomegranate Martini

By Recipes From a Pantry

This pomegranate martini is just the right colour for a Valentine’s Day drink, and it’s easily customisable, too. If you don’t like vodka, for example, you can switch it out for gin. If you don’t like Cointreau, you could always change that for Triple Sec. Take a peek for more tweak ideas. You’ll be glad you did, trust me!

99: Cherry Blossom Cocktail

By Homemade Hooplah

It’s a milkshake, coloured pink for the romantic theme, and with a touch of booze added for good measure. So, yes, this cherry blossom cocktail is well-deserved of its place on this list of Valentine’s Day cocktails!

100: Passionfruit Mojito

By Cookie Named Desire

What says passion more than passion fruit? Well, apart from actual passion, of course. This fun and tropical drink mixes real passion fruit with sugar, light rum, mint leaves, lime juice, club soda, and – of course – some ice.

101: Cherub’s Cup Cocktail

By Style Me Pretty

According to YouGov polls, only 38% of people in the UK actually like Valentine’s Day. In the same poll, 25% of people said they actively dislike the day. Which camp do you sit in? And will you be sipping these Valentine’s Day cocktails with a smile on your face… or a scowl?

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look at my list of 101 Valentine’s Day cocktails. I hope you’ve managed to find one or two drinks that tick all of the right boxes for you, but, as always, I’d love to hear what you’re planning on serving up. You can get in touch on social media and let me know!

Anyway, ciao for now. I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day, no matter how you end up celebrating (or not celebrating) it!

Remember: Always drink responsibly.
