Valentine’s Day Cherry Cocktails

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Do you have plans? I do. But it’s a secret and I don’t want to spoil the surprise yet! The other day we discussed a little bit about how Mr. Yum and I use Valentine’s Day as an excuse. I’ll for showing love year-round, not just one day a year. But, our life is full of responsibilities just like everyone else and every once in a while we need a little R&R. We need to recharge our batteries, otherwise life will drag us down and we are useless to the world around us.

Hubs isn’t much of a drinker. When he does drink he wants to drink things where he can’t taste any alcohol. I wanted to make him something new (to him) and fun for Valentine’s Day. So, he’s my inspiration for these Valentine’s cocktails. He loves cherries so I thought it would be perfect to find a few recipes for him.

I hope you find something you like, too.

    1. Traverse City is the cherry capital. Every summer they have a Cherry Festival. It’s big. Famous people come. Did you know Madonna has a home up there? They also keep the cherries out until the first freeze. Then pick. They make some special frozen frost cherry wine. So it seems like the season is late spring all the way to fall.

  12. To be honest, I don’t think I ever had a cocktail drink. I did drink beer but couldn’t remember the last time either. The husband and I talked about drinking cocktails before but never got around to do it. I think I will have to remind him about it again and I think I will tell him about that Fireball Whiskey Cheesecake Shots. He likes whiskey. He’ll be over the moon. 🙂
