Valentines Day Drink Recipe

Hey there! It’s already the middle of January and next up on the calendar is Valentine’s Day. This holiday usually means making reservations at some over-priced restaurant that will undoubtedly be incredibly crowded and where full menus aren’t usually an option. Let’s have a show of hands – who likes going out only to be able to order off a prix fixe menu and waitstaff that is only concerned about ushering you along so the next seating could take place? Not me. Seriously, I’ve spent many Valentine’s Days in this exact scenario and always wish we would’ve just stayed in.
And staying in has its perks. It’s a great opportunity for couples to cook a lovely meal together or even order some great take-in from that new place you’ve been dying to try. If you decide to spend V-Day at home this year, you need a great drink on hand. There are SO many cocktail options out there, but I am a firm believer in “less is more”. We all know that you can’t celebrate love without champagne and what better way than with the tried-and-true Champagne and Chambord. I love this drink for Valentine’s Day because it’s a sweet little treat and you almost don’t need the chocolate. I said almost…

This drink is super simple to make. Start with chilled champagne. I usually fill a champagne glass halfway to three quarters of the way full. Then you add a splash of Chambord. DONE! You can add a raspberry for garnish or put one in the bottom glass before you pour. Since Chambord is very sweet, I find that a dryer champagne works well.

If you’re looking for a way to enjoy this tasty cocktail, these personalized champagne flutes will do the trick. They are a cute gift idea and at the price point you can use them each year.
Enjoy!
