This Love Potion Cocktail is so romantic!
The drink is made from a combination of vodka, peach schnapps and pink grapefruit juice for a yummy flavor and pretty color.
Pink Grapefruit juice is naturally pink in color and gives the drink its distinctive hue.
Peach Schnapps adds a lovely bit of extra fruit flavor to the vodka based drink.
To make the drink, just add ice to a cocktail shaker and pour in all your drink ingredients.
Give everything a good shake and strain into a martini glass. If you want a brighter pink color, just add a drop of red food coloring and swirl.
Ideas for garnishing the love potion cocktail
Finishing the look of this valentine cocktail is super easy. Just place a candy heart into a striped pink straw to garnish the cocktail.
Other ideas for garnishing the drink are these:
- Grapefruit peel slices shaped into hearts.
- Watermelon pieces cut into heart shapes with mini cookie cutters and stuck into the end of the striped spoon.
- Large strawberries sliced and cut into heart shapes.
This pretty cocktail recipe is simple to make and so pretty and romantic, too. It is the perfect drink to enjoy over a special meal with someone special.
