Next week is Valentine’s Day. You might have the roses and gifts locked down already, but what about dinner and drinks? Making dinner for your lady is very romantic. So make her one of her favorite meals and try one of these two cocktails to enjoy during dinner.

The first is the “Hibiscus Punch”, which is bound to make any Valentine’s get-together a little less sour and a little more sweet. Made with Smirnoff No. 21, this is a quality recipe that won’t break the bank! The “Secret Admirer” is the perfect cocktail to serve up for your date night, which features Smirnoff’s most popular flavor, Smirnoff Raspberry.

Hibiscus Crush

16 ounces Smirnoff No. 21 Vodka (2 cups)
