Cherry brandy cocktails are popular Valentine’s Day alcoholic drinks. Since I rarely drink, I didn’t know this, but I do know that many couples enjoy having a drink or few with their sweethearts on Valentine’s Day.
So I asked a friend if they had any cherry brandy cocktails ideas, and boy did they ever. We are calling this cherry brandy cocktail… My Cherry Valentine.
Cherry Brandy Cocktails
I love cherries, and I even tried them in this appetizer, Prosciutto Cherry Bites. I’ve also made homemade Chocolate Covered Cherry Bombs, an appetizer, and dessert that will go great with a cherry-themed romantic Valentine’s Day along with the My Cherry Valentine drink.
I love Valentine’s Day, but I really don’t care for the commercialization of this romantic holiday. So I enjoy spending Valentine’s Day at home with my husband with a special dinner and drink.
As I mentioned earlier, I rarely drink alcohol, but if you don’t plan on going out, this My Cherry Valentine drink is perfect drink as far as cherry brandy cocktails go…
My Cherry Valentine
- 1 oz Remy Martin Cognac VSOP
- 1 oz Cherry Syrup
- 3.5 oz Cherry Cola
- Maraschino Cherry
- lnto a cocktail shaker add cognac, cherry syrup, cherry cola, and top with ice.
- Stir with a long-handled cocktail spoon for 25 seconds.
- Strain into a serving glass and garnish with cherries on a cocktail stick.
You could easily make My Cherry Valentine without the Cognac if you want to make it alcohol-free. Otherwise, I think cherry brandy cocktails would make a perfect drink to share with your sweetheart this Valentines Day.
Oh, this cocktail can be enjoyed with your significant other anytime, not just on Valentine’s Day.
But remember, drink responsibly, and never drink and drive!
