Take your Valentine’s Day toast to the next level this year. Whether you prefer a drink with a sweet kick or a non-alcoholic option (Valentine’s Day 2024 falls on a week day, after all) here are five delicious drinks that might as well be love potions.
Dillon’s Love Float Cocktail
Rose and Lychee Martini
This Rose and Lychee martini is a signature cocktail at the Maison ELLE boutique hotel in Paris, France. Garnished with dried rose petals, it’s as fashionable as the hotel bar it’s served in.
Dirty Beet Martini
Valentine’s Day doesn’t need to be sweet and saccharine. For those of you who like savoury drinks, this pickled beet martini is for you.
Clover Club Cocktail
This recipe from Vancouver’s now-closed Nox Restaurant is a simple gin-vermouth cocktail transformed by frozen berries, which were used to create a unique berry “foam” and dried fruit “leather”.
Fruity Agave Mocktail
Casa Madera‘s Mexican-style mocktail is an elegant (and suitably elaborate just-for-Valentine’s Day) alcohol-free option featuring Quebec-made “tequila”.
