For National Bubble Gum Day (2/3), let Sakura Bubbles be the star of the show. This bubble gum pink cocktail requires a handful of ingredients and uses simple techniques. The bubbly cocktail has notes of lime to perfectly balance the floral vibes from the cherry blossom syrup.
Beast Mode Mule
For one of the biggest party days of the year, you’ll want to add this cocktail to the menu. Super Bowl Sunday brings in all the football lovers ready to enjoy a cocktail while rooting for their team. The Beast Mode Mule takes a classic cocktail and gives it a twist by adding a melon liqueur.
Sweetheart Sorbet Sour
The day of love (2/14) will bring couples ready to enjoy a romantic evening with their partner. To end the night, offer up the Sweetheart Sorbet Sour cocktail. This dessert cocktail has a cherry vanilla sorbet mixed with a pomegranate liqueur. Not only does it look beautiful for the occasion, but it will be the perfect treat to end the night.
Mint Chocolate Skrew
On February 19, sip on a Mint Chocolate Skrew to celebrate National Mint Chocolate Day. Another great option to add to a dessert cocktail list, the peanut butter whiskey brings this sweet treat to the next level.
With tequila being on the rise, National Margarita Day (2/22) offers the opportunity to take a classic and make it something special. The Yuzu Margarita is a great option for those who want to test different flavors. The notes of ginger, yuzu, and peach are balanced by the spicy salt rim—it’s not too spicy or too sweet.
