Valentine's Day Cocktail: Love at First Blush

Valentine's Day has always been an exciting holiday for me. Besides the fact that I love a good theme, it's a great opportunity to overindulge my fondness for Valentine's cookies and conversation hearts. Whether coupled up or riding solo, I always find a way to make the most of a day dedicated to showing people how much they're loved. This year I will be clinking glasses with my girlfriends in celebration of our lasting relationship and sipping on blush-hued cocktails to seal the deal. I whipped up this playful and potent cocktail that can be repurposed year round. How will you spend your Valentine's Day?
