At Bonjour Fête, Valentine’s Day is all about sugar lips and sweet sips! Whether you’re planning a Galentine’s party or a cozy night in, nothing beats a tasty Valentine’s Day treat. Especially when it’s a treat you can drink! We’ve rounded up our favorite Valentine’s Day drink ideas for kids, adults, and sweet-tooth sweethearts everywhere.
Red Velvet Hot Chocolate (recipe sourced from Mildly Meandering)
Frigid February calls for something toasty. So this delicious twist on hot chocolate is a “love at first sip” kind of drink. Made to taste like a rich red velvet cake, it’s the perfect dessert after Valentine’s Day dinner.
Over medium heat, combine 1 cup of milk, 1 cup of heavy whipping cream, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Then stir in ½ a cup of white chocolate chips and cook until it has melted completely. Finally, add a few drops of red food coloring until the desired color is achieved.
For the topping, beat together ½ a cup of heaving whipping cream, 3 tablespoons of powdered sugar, and ¼ teaspoon of vanilla extract. Once the mixture has a whipped consistency, add 1 ounce of softened cream cheese and beat until there are hard peaks.
Serve the hot chocolate in a cozy cocoa cup to keep it warm, and add a dollop of frosting on top. We suggest having some heart-shaped sprinkles or dark chocolate crumbles on-hand as garnish options. You can even serve them alongside other toppings like marshmallows and peanut butter clusters in these Valentine’s Day baking cups!
Love Potion Punch (Recipe sourced from The Chunky Chef)
This pretty pink drink is a flirty twist on a classic cocktail. It pairs wonderfully with chocolate-covered strawberries and Galentine’s Day gossip. However, if you aren’t feeling boozy, you’ll find this drink to be just as delightful sans alcohol.
Start by coating the rim of each glass with sugar or sprinkles, and set aside. (These V-Day sprinkles are particularly festive, and they complement our XOXO cups fabulously)! Next, add ⅓ cup vodka, ¼ cup peach schnapps, and 1 cup grapefruit juice in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake, shake, shake, en voilà!
For the non-alcoholic version, skip the vodka and substitute the peach liqueur for peach soda or blush sparkling cider.
We recommend accompanying it with a spread of spritzy Valentine’s Day candies like sparkling wine gummies and champagne bears. You can also never go wrong with sour smooches, especially when they’re displayed in some adorable V-Day treat cups!
Cupid Float (recipe sourced from Somewhat Simple)
This quick and easy drink will have everyone smitten! It’s perfect for a classroom Valentine’s Day party or as a special after-school treat.
Simply add a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream to your cup or glass. We suggest opting for a clear cup like this since you’ll definitely want to showcase the classic valentine's colors. Then, fill the rest of the cup with any red or pink soda that floats your love boat. We went with cherry, but a blood orange or strawberry would be tasty, too!
Garnish it by coating the rim with red sprinkles and popping in a heart-shaped straw. We also love the idea of making a delicious DIY straw by cutting the ends off of a piece of licorice. Soda-lightful!
Those are all the sweet sips we have for now! We hope some of them make it into your Valentine’s Day plans. For more tasty inspiration, check out our Valentine’s Day treats and party supplies selection here. Bisou, Bisou!
