Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka? - Valentine's Day Cocktails

Cupid and arrows, pink and red, hearts and flowers… Valentine’s Day is just so frilly, I LOVE IT! In fact, I am endlessly bitter that I wasn’t a Valentine’s baby – I was born on the 12th. If only I had held out for 2 more days, it would have completed the picture perfectly. (I was 35 yesterday. I don’t want to talk about it.)

ANYWAY, Happy Almost Valentine’s Day! I have planned 2 delicious dessert cocktails for you, my lovelies, and I am so excited to share them with you.

Love Potion Number 9

Ingredients:
2 ounces of strawberry vodka
1 ounce of white (clear) crème de cacao
1 cup of fresh strawberries
2 scoops of vanilla ice cream
1 cup of ice
Whipped cream
Extra strawberries for garnish

*Depending on the size of your blender, you may need to divide this recipe in half and make each one individually.

Directions:
Pour the vodka, crème de cacao, strawberries, ice cream and ice into a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into chilled margarita or large wine goblet – top with whipped cream and add a strawberry for your garnish.

This next one is more simple, but delicious, nonetheless – AND it’s warm. YUM!

Steamy and Spiked Hot Chocolate

Ingredients:
2 – 8 ounce mugs of piping hot chocolate
*2 shots (or more!) of Marshmallow vodka
Whipped cream
Chocolate Syrup

Directions:
(Hopefully by now, you all know how to make homemade hot chocolate. If not, grab a pack of instant and do your thang.)

Pour 1 shot of the marshmallow vodka into each mug and top with whipped cream. Drizzle with chocolate syrup and enjoy! *If you find that you don’t taste enough of the marshmallow vodka, add more! Nobody’s judging.

Happy Valentine’s Day to you and yours! Cheers!
