7 Red Cocktails for Valentine's Day, Including the Ultimate Aphrodisiac Margarita
Sultry red cocktails are essential for Valentine’s Day. Here, 7 red drinks with flavors that range from tangy to smoky.
1. Red Velvet
This riff on the Black Velvet replaces the Champagne with Prosecco and the Guinness with raspberry-flavored lambic.
2. The Savoy Daisy
This updated version of the classic Daisy cocktail uses muscovado, an unrefined brown sugar with a very moist texture and strong molasses flavor.
5. Caprese Daiquiri
This ultra-savory daiquiri evokes the flavors of a caprese salad (tomato, basil and fresh mozzarella).
7. Aphrodisiac Margarita
Mixologist Adam Seger claims that the margarita is the cocktail world's aphrodisiac. This version combines passion fruit and pomegranate, commonly associated with Aphrodite, the goddess of love.
