4 Pretty Valentine’s Day Cocktails

Valentine's Day Cocktails

Finding the perfect Valentine’s Day cocktail has never been easier. Recipes abound on Pinterest and Instagram. Cocktails have made a big comeback and are far more imaginative than the old gin and tonic. Sex and the City may have started the trend with women everywhere ordering a Cosmopolitan rather than a chardonnay. While Cosmopolitans are still great cocktails and make a very pretty Valentine’s Day drink, we’ve selected four cocktails that are not only very pretty but absolutely delicious. Whether you are celebrating the day with someone special or tuning into the latest episode of The Gilded Age for an evening alone, mix up one of our special cocktails and celebrate Valentine’s Day!

Clayton’s Margarita Holiday Style

Valentine's Day Cocktails

This great recipe is from The Defined Dish. Clayton’s Holiday Margarita is a favorite of the CEO and Co-Founder of Prime Women, Dorthy Shore (featured above).

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup of good tequila 
  • 1/4 cup Cointreau

  • 1/4 cup pomegranate juice
  • 1 tsp egg whites (fresh or out of the carton is fine!)
  • salt for glass rims
