There are a few drinks that are synonymous with Valentine’s Day. Wine and champagne are the most common romantic drinks. But that’s just for those who don’t think outside of the box. Bourbon is a great Valentine’s Day drink to have on the menu. Bourbon is America’s whiskey and purists say you should only drink it neat. Neat means to drink bourbon at room temp, no ice, no additives, just pure bourbon. But Valentine’s Day bourbon cocktails might ask a little more than purists would prefer. The results will be amazing.
The best Valentine’s Day bourbon cocktails will set the mood for Valentine’s Day or any date night that you will both enjoy!
Alcohol is a good way to loosen up. It is important to enjoy your drinks responsibly but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun. Especially on Valentine’s Day.
Most people are reaching for the wine or champagne to celebrate the love they share. But there are more ways to celebrate with a drink than just champagne or wine.
Bourbon is a drink that is acquired in most cases but once you acquire it you will fall in love with it. That means Valentine’s Day bourbon cocktails are perfect.
The drink itself tells a story of love and romance. Bourbon takes time and energy to create and so does the love you share with someone else. It has a dating stage, an engagement, and finally a marriage all in one bottle.
