Valentine's Day Cocktail Recipes

Valentine’s Day Cocktail Recipes

We asked a few of our friends what kind of cocktails are hot this Valentine’s Day and got tips from Hollywood and Las Vegas hotspots, and even from our friends at Nespresso.

Hollywood hot spot cocktails

The two first Valentine’s Day cocktails are courtesy of Hollywood hotspot, Lexington Social House. Celebrity fans of Lexington Social House include Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Christina Milian, Jonah Hill, Lake Bell, and many more. Lexington Social House shared two of their popular recipes. These two light and flavorful cocktails will be a hit for Valentine’s Day and also carry perfectly into the spring.
