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.

Margarita Ibbott @DownshiftingPRO says
I am not a fan of marachino cherries. When I was a vh old my parent took me out to dinner and I wanted q Shirley TEMPLE and aft 2 I felt sick. Ugh.
amanda mcmahon says
When is cherry season there in Michigan? I’ll see about doing some of these since we’re moving there!
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.
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. 🙂
Chrissy Mazzocchi says
Oh man these all look so delicious and refreshing! Pour me one! 🙂
Diane Sullivan says
The Magical Disappearing Drink is definitely something that looks like hubby and I would love. Actually they all look incredible.

Those look and sound so yummy! I would probably eat the cherry before drinking the drink – lol
S. Cate says
Hey, I might not have a boyfriend but I will sure make for myself these coctails. Thanks for sharing.
Ninja Mommers says
These are all amazing. They look so delish I have to try them.
Aisha Kristine Chong says
I would have to try some of these – great and yummy roundups you have here!
Melissa Vera says
I am not much of a cocktail drinker but when I do have a cocktail I like something a little fruity.
Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle says
OMG! All of those look so good. I think I’m getting buzzed just looking at them. Yum!
Love it! Did Mr. Yum like any of them?
He liked them all, but only if I didn’t add a lot of booze. LOL
