Ultimate List of Valentine’s Day Cocktail Ideas

Valentine’s Day is a truly a holiday that can be celebrated by everyone.  Whether you are spending it with your partner or with your best friends, it can be a fun celebration.  I always love finding fun drink ideas.  Since many of us cannot go out this year to celebrate, I have complied the ultimate list of Valentine’s Day Cocktail Ideas.  You can make all of these from the comfort of your own home.

All of these Valentine’s Day Cocktail Recipes do contain alcohol.  I have done my best to list them by the main alcohol ingredient.  Many of them combine more than one type, so I categorized it by the main type used.  There are around 70 different drink ideas for your Valentine’s Day celebration.  Surely, you will be able to find something you enjoy!

Would you rather have non-alcoholic drinks?  Check out our Ultimate List of Valentine’s Day Drink Ideas.  All of the ones on that list are non-alcoholic.

If you are looking for other ideas, check out our Valentine’s Day Round-Up that features everything from food recipes to craft ideas.

Now let’s get to the good stuff!

    1. Wow that’s a long list of cocktails. I’m sure this ll stir interest in many cocktail lovers. Awesome! 👍🏻👍🏻

  2. Valentine’s day is just a few days before my birthday, so I may extend my journey through these cocktails for a few days! 😂 that strawberry mimosa looks amazing. 😍 thank you for this read!

  3. These cocktails all sound so good! I really love the strawberry shortcake cocktail. That is so perfect for Valentine’s Day.

  4. Awe! These are all gorgeous representations of Valentine’s day drink ideas. I think my favorite is the Raspberry Lemonade Mimosa. With a side of Pink Starburst Jello Shots 🙂

    1. I am so excited for this! Baby number 2 is due February 8th so I’m hoping I’ll be able to enjoy a well deserved Valentine’s Day cocktail! That is, if I’m not too exhausted and obviously not overdue 😂

  5. I haven’t had a cocktail in a while, and it would be fun to make some of these for Valentine’s Day. So many of these sound fun, like the Pink Squirrel!

  6. Yudith Napitupulu

    All of this list is interesting. I’m confusing which one should i pick for valentine. STRAWBERRY CUCUMBER LEMONADE PUNCH, I think is good idea for me as I’m not drinking alcohol.

  7. Julianne Hodges

    These are great ideas! I work at a local liquor shop in Iowa and we have almost all of these ingredients! It’s so fun to see how they might be used!

  8. great post, forget valentines this is great before as well as after for those who like to give themselves a treat in the evenings, especially on weekends, I love it!

  9. Mihaela | https://theworldisanoyster.com/

    I have already tried a few cocktails from your list and they are delicious! Cafe con leche, the Martinis and Baileys are my favourites so far. But there are so many more to give a try, I’ll probably go through most by Valentine’s:))) Nice collection!

  10. Awesome! This is such a great collection of drinks! Absolutely loved the Valentine’s Moscow Mule idea. I will be going to the grocery store to purchase the ingredients for this one by February 14th! Thanks again <3

  15. Sonia Seivwright

    Cocktails are becoming my new favourite drinks. I’m new to cocktails so i love this list to explore more flavours

  16. All of these cocktails look good but I love my martinis and you have a lot of new ones here for me to try like the Mississippi Mudtini. Also the raspberry lemonade mimosa looks like a cool summer drink. When getting together with my besties we love to try my drinks out and this list gives us many to try. I’m pinning this for late, thanks

  17. brittshedhappens

    This is an INCREIDBLE list! I’m a vodka drinker and I totally have my eye on that Blood Orange Crush. I might just have to add the ingredients to our shopping list for this coming week.

  18. You weren’t kidding when you said this is the ultimate list. It really is THE ultimate list of cocktails. I’m totally saving this for later because I want to make them all!

  19. Holy moly, these all look amazing! This is definitely the ultimate list, great job putting it all together. Now, just have to decide which drink to try first…hard decision!

  20. This is quite a long list! Thank you for putting all these cocktail recipes together. The Strawberry Elderflower Liqueur Cocktail looks tempting. I will definitely be trying it for Valentine’s Day if not earlier 😉

  21. Wow, that is a lot of option for Valentine’s Day drink. I think there has to be some chocolate so that chocolate martini looks good to me. Thanks for sharing.

  22. I think it will take me several valentines days to get through this list! I like how you have options for every taste, not just berries. I had no idea Bailey’s makes a Red Velvet flavor!

  23. Renata - byemyself

    All these drinks look so tasty – and some of them a bit dangerous 😉 I’d drink them any day, not only on Valentines Day.

  24. What an amazing list and they look so wonderful by looking at the pictures! Now, can I make a order? I love anything with citrus 🙂 Knycx Journeying

  25. For a second there I forgot how close we were to valentine’s day. These drinks look amazing especially the POMEGRANATE MIMOSA CHAMPAGNE COCKTAIL. I am not a big cocktail person but this looks amazing truly. Thanks for sharing!
