Intro: Cheers to Valentine's Day!
No matter what your relationship status, nothing goes better with Valentine’s Day than a drink. That’s right. Nothing. We created a set of paper drink tags — and some recipes — for you to make your beverages extra sweet.
Step 1: What You'll Need
A color printer
Paper drink tags
Clear tape or glue
Step 2: Step One
Print out your sheet of tags and cut out the hearts and tabs (with the dotted lines) you want to use.
Step 3: Step Two
Take a straw and center it at the back of your first paper heart. Place the tab over the straw and tape or glue into place. Repeat.
Step 4: Step Three
Choose one of the recipes below and make your drinks. Toast to each other, to yourself, or just to love.
Cream Soda Float
2 cups pink cream soda (or strawberry-flavored soda)
1 cup vanilla ice cream
Whipped cream (optional)
Maraschino cherry (optional)
Divide soda into two large mason jars. Add 1/2 cup of ice cream to each. Top with whipped cream and a cherry if you like, then add your Valentine straws.
3 oz. gin
1 oz. elderflower liqueur
1 cup pomegranate soda
Divide ingredients into two small mason jars or highball glasses. Mix together gin, liqueur, and soda. Add three raspberries to each glass and add your Valentine straws.
Prosecco & Rock Candy
2 pieces rock candy
Fill champagne glasses with prosecco. Fit your paper Valentines at the top of each rock candy stick and add to the glasses.
