Hi! I made you a pink drink! A pink sparkly drink! A raspberry champagne cocktail to be exact.

This drink couldn’t be more my favorite thing ever. It’s pink! It’s sparkly! It’s pretty much the inside of my head and I love it so much. They are just so pretty.

I have this deep seated belief that cocktails should be pretty. I’m not much of a cocktail person to be perfectly honest. I have them mainly on special occasions or with a really nice meal. So of course they need to be pretty. And what’s pretty in my mind? Sparkles and pink obviously. TBH, this isn’t the first pretty pink cocktail I’ve made for you all. I mean hello pomegranate rose spritzers and my Christmas cranberry champagne cocktail. Both pretty. Both pink.

Is it just me or do raspberries scream Valentine’s Day and date night?

However, neither one feels super Valentine’s Day to me. Maybe the pomengranate rose spritzers. Maybe.  But really, when I think of a Valentine’s Day cocktail, I think raspberry. Because raspberry goes so perfectly with all the yummy chocolatey Valentine’s desserts like this no bake chocolate cheesecake with Oreo crust.

And though Valentine’s Day is arguably not my favorite holiday because of its over all cheese factor, we still celebrate it as much as we can with a 3 year old. Gone are Valentine’s Days full of romantic surprises and fancy dinners out. Instead, if we go out, we go for pizza, but mostly we will make a nice dinner after Goose goes to bed. A nice enough dinner to warrant a cocktail to go with it. And since I like bubbly that’s what I go with.

Because I like to feel fancy when I am having a cocktail in my pajama pants or sweats. Which incidentally is what I’ll likely be wearing for our Valentine’s Day dinner at home as I sip on this sparkly raspberry champagne cocktail and watch When Harry Met Sally while eating fancy pasta.

      You could definitely do them for the holidays because of the pretty color. I think raspberries are really versatile though and make me think of Valentine's Day and spring and summer. Maybe it's bc of the Bath and Body fragrance from when we were kids. Remember sunripened raspberry?
