Mommy mixologist: Valentine's Cocktails

Valentine’s treats don’t have to come in a heart-shaped box. Pop open a bottle and toast to your love instead.

Cherub’s cup

1 ounce St-Germain

2 ounces citrus vodka

3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice

1/4 ounce simple syrup

Brut rosé or Brut champagne

Strawberry, for garnish, or 1 ounce muddled strawberries

Shake and strain first four ingredients over fresh ice in a Collins glass. Top with sparkling wine. Garnish with strawberry, or stir in the muddled strawberries for fruit-filled flavor.


Passionate kiss martini

1 ounce SKYY Infusions Passion Fruit vodka

1 ounce raspberry liqueur

2 ounces pineapple juice

Strawberry, for garnish

Pour all ingredients in a mixing pint filled with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with two thin slices of strawberry floating on the surface of the cocktail.

Mix tip: Cut the sweetness of this kiss with a splash of prosecco or sparking wine.

Cupid’s quiver

4 frozen Bing cherries

1 ounce SKYY Infusions Cherry vodka

1/2 ounce Luxardo maraschino liqueur

Splash of freshly squeezed lemon juice


Gently muddle cherries and vodka in a mixing pint. Add ice, liqueur and lemon juice and shake. Strain into a champagne flute and top with prosecco. Garnish with lemon zest.
