Every Valentine’s Day while we were dating, engaged and now in our marriage, it’s been a little tradition for me to create some sort of heart-shaped treat for Steve. I love taking some of our favorite things and giving them a special Valentine’s Day makeover twist. In the past I’ve make heart-shaped personal pizzas, mini cheesecakes, fruit salads, and of course classic frosted sugar cookies. Pink frosted sugar cookies evoke a nostalgic feeling of childhood and simply make us happy this time of year. What better way to spend Valentine’s Day than cozied up with a fresh strawberry Champagne cocktail, homemade treats and the one you love?
It’s hard to believe Valentine’s Day is just a week away! What are your traditions or plans to celebrate the one you love? Here are a few ideas and a cocktail recipe we created to help inspire your holiday.
