5 Super Simple Cocktails You Can Make For Valentine’s Day, Whether It’s Date Night Or Girls’ Night

The Clover Club is *chef's kiss.*

Happy (early) Valentine's Day, everybody! This year, whether you're having a romantic evening in, partying with the girls, or sitting at home alone watching Hugh Grant movies, I have the perfect cocktail for you.

So, if you're looking to make your Valentine's celebrations a little special, here are five great (and pretty simple) recipes for you to try. 

1. The French Blonde

What you'll need:

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice, shake, and strain into a glass. That's it! 

2. The Espresso Martini

What you'll need:

How to make it:

Combine all ingredients (minus your garnish) in a cocktail shaker with ice, shake, and strain into a glass. I added a chocolate-shaving heart as a garnish because I'm a little extra, but it's not necessary!

3. The Clover Club

What you'll need:

How to make it:

To make the syrup, dissolve the sugar in water in a pot over medium heat. Reduce heat and add the raspberries, muddling them to make a pulp. Strain the syrup, so you don't get any berry mush or seeds. 

For the drink, shake all ingredients together in a shaker with ice. The egg white is optional; it makes it nice and frothy. Strain into a chilled glass, and serve! 

4. The Rosé Spritz

cocktail in a wine glass with a lemon and rosemary garnish

What you'll need:

What to do:

Stir together rosé and St. Germain. Pour into a coupe glass and top off with tonic water, to taste. Garnish with a lemon slice, if you like! 

5. The Dirty Shirley

cocktail and cherry in a whiskey glass

What you'll need:

What to do:

Pour vodka, grenadine, and soda into a glass over ice. Top with a maraschino cherry. That's it! 

6. And finally, as a bonus: A glass of red wine.
