Valentine's Day Cocktail Recipes - How To Make Simple Cocktails

Valentine's Day is coming up before you know it, and we'd like to give you more time to fall in love instead of slaving away in the kitchen. Whether you're in a happy twosome or celebrating Valentine's Day with your pals, tip a glass to love with cocktails that are so quick to make you'll have more time to celebrate.

It seems like  Powell and Mahoney has cocktail recipes for every holiday and of course we are able to share them with you.

For Lovers. You will instantly fall in love with the Passion Margarita. In a shaker, combine 1.5 oz. 100% blue agave blanco tequila, 1.5 oz. Powell & Mahoney Mango Passion Margarita, 0.5 oz. almond syrup, 2 dashes Angostura bitters and the juice of half a lime.

Don't have a Valentine? No problem. For those celebrating Singles Awareness Day, celebrate bromances and Galentine's Day with these delicious libations.

For guys. Celebrate your singlehood with your buddies with a batch of Spicy Snapper. Pour 4 oz. Powell & Mahoney's award-winning Sriracha Bloody Mary mix, ½ oz. fresh lemon juice and 1 ½ oz. gin in a shaker and gently shake.  Strain into a pint glass filled with ice and garnish with a lemon wedge and celery leaves.

For gals. What better way to celebrate than with the original girl's night cocktail: the Cosmopolitan? It's so much better to be pink than blue with the Cosmo Berry Spritz in hand! Mix 2 oz. Powell & Mahoney Cosmopolitan mix, 1 medium strawberry and 3 oz. dry white wine in a shaker. Muddle strawberry and gently shake. Strain all ingredients into a wine glass filled with ice and stop with a splash of soda and garnish with an orange wheel.

For the love curmudgeon. If you're just down on love for the time being and aren't puckering up for anyone this V-Day, feel free to express your bitterness with The Sour cocktail. Pour 1 ½ - 2 oz. spirit of choice and 1 oz. Powell & Mahoney Lemon Sour mixer into a shaker and gently shake. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a lemon twist.

We hope these recipes add a little spice to your Valentine's Day!!!
