COCKTAIL FOR TWO | A Valentine's Day Special


It's that time of the year again, whether you look forward to it or not. Instead of creating another outfit post, I decided to make a yummy cocktail instead, since it's also been a while after my last one. This cocktail is perfect for date night which involves a DIY dinner, and also is perfect for a girl's night in. My Valentine's Day cocktail is an easy to make drink, and doesn't need a lot of ingredients. The only spirits used are vodka and Cointreau. If you cannot manage to use Cointreau, you can use either Grand Marnier or Triple Sec.


  • Fresh Strawberries (at least 5)
  • Mint leaves
  • Lemon
  • Strawberry crush/syrup (for extra flavour)
  • Vodka
  • Cointreau/Triple Sec
  • Club soda

Step by step process

  • Chop three strawberries and drop into both glasses. 
  • Add a couple of sprigs of mint leaves.
  • Chop up two lemons and add about 3/4th of a lemon into each glass, after deseeding. 
  • Top off with half a shot glass of strawberry concentrate and the muddle the contents. 
  • Add a shot of both vodka and Cointreau, into each glass. 
  • Add ice cubes and top off remaining drink with club soda.
  • Garnish with a strawberry and add a stirrer.
  • Mix well before drinking
