We love any holiday that calls for themed cocktails... Valentine's Day included! At Mixly, we believe making a cocktail (or mocktail) for any occasion should be fun and easy, no exceptions. So here's three easy cocktail recipes we've whipped up just in time for Valentine's Day. Create something special for your lover on V-day or batch some cocktails to celebrate with your galentines! All these recipes use Mixly's all natural cocktail mixers, making all these recipes less than 2-5 ingredients each. Haven't tried our mixers yet? No worries, we've linked all our flavors in the recipes below.
Spicy Non Alcoholic Grapefruit Margarita
Spice up your Valentine's Day while keeping it PG with this bittersweet NA margarita recipe. Our Mixly grapefruit jalapeño flavor and a hint of jalapeño pairs perfectly with Spiritless’ NA tequila that delivers “all the flavor and feels of your favorite tequila.” For extra points, rim your glass with a small amount of honey and coarse salt (Red Clay Spicy Margarita Salt is our favorite). Grapefruit Jalapeño is our top selling Mixly flavor, and you’ll taste why!
