I loved this part of my research - the drinks were so creative and the colours were pretty and girly.

A Long Kiss Goodnight consists of vanilla vodka, strawberry vodka, Godiva white chocolate liqueur, topped with shaved white chocolate.

Pink Chai Tea Latte (with pink heart cookies) was actually intended for a wedding shower/bachelorette, party but I thought it was perfect for Valentine's Day.

Red Velvet Cake Martini consists of cream cheese frosting, red coloured sugar, chocolate-flavour syrup, crushed ice, cake-flavoured vodka, crème de cacao, buttermilk, and red food colouring.

Use empty Starbucks cappuccino cooler drinks glass containers like Erin at Bits and Bobs did.  It's a perfect bottle for serving strawberry milk or strawberry milkshakes at your Valentine's Day party.  She adds a doily and red and white striped ribbon to give the bottle a little Valentine flare.  Under a Cherry tree uses fun Valentine's printables to decorate her bottles - beautiful!
