The Perfect Valentine’s Day Cocktail: Love Potion No. 9

I was thinking about a beautiful and bright Valentine’s Day (or Galentine’s!) Cocktail and I came up with this one! I call it love potion no. 9, get ittttt. I’m cheesy, I know. But in all seriousness I can’t believe it’s almost Valentine’s Day – let alone February! Although I believe in celebrating your loved one’s all year, I do fall into the why not show a little extra on Valentine’s! This cocktail is the perfect way to share love on Valentine’s Day while being festive. 

This Love Potion No. 9 cocktail is pretty red because I used red cranberry juice, if you want it more pink then just use white cranberry juice. This recipe can also be made into a mocktail to include kids, just skip the vodka and add a little more cranberry juice or soda!

This recipe is just for one cocktail, but depending on the number of people you’re serving you can double, triple, or make as many as you need. 

My Festive Valentine’s Day Cocktail Love Potion No. 9 Ingredients

  • 3 ounces cranberry juice
  • 2 ounces lemon lime soda
  • 1 ounce vodka
  • 1 ounce grenadine

Fill the cup with ice from your NewAir Ice Machine and then pour in the white cranberry juice, vodka, lemon lime soda, and grenadine. Serve immediately.

The Best at Home Ice Maker

If you’re like me and like to make festive cocktails for all of life’s occasions like this one, then I would recommend getting an at home ice maker, like this NewAir Countertop Clear Ice Maker. I was hooked on New Air Appliances when I got their wine fridge! This particular ice maker makes up to 40 lbs of ice in a day which means bring on all the cocktails!! It’s great to have for a hot summer day at the beach, a pool party, BBQ, or a party like I’m throwing for Valentine’s. 

It’s truly a lifesaver! It creates clear ice (slower melting, better taste, less fizz), BPA free, and is so small to sit on your counter/backyard/or garage. 

Want your own at home ice maker?

I honestly love having any amount of ice ready for me at a moment’s notice and I couldn’t imagine waiting until my freezer caught up to my ice needs or making another trip to the grocery store for a bag of ice. If you want your own at home ice maker click here  SKU: Clearice40 and use code “AMANDA35OFF ” for anything on the NewAir Appliances website!!
