If you hadn’t heard, this Friday is Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re planning a romantic date night in with your significant other or riding solo this year, chances are you’re going to need a drink (or two). With that in mind, here’s a Valentine’s Day-inspired recipe. A new twist on an old favorite, the Strawberry Lemonade Mimosa (adapted from the FamilyCookbook.com) is sure to please with its sweet — and slightly tart — flavor and VDay-pink hue. What’s more, it can be made in under 5 minutes and for less than $10 — and that’s something we can all celebrate this Valentine’s Day.
– One 10 oz bag/can of Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri Mixer (used here: Daily’s)
-Two cups pink lemonade (used here: Minute Maid)
-One bottle Champagne (used here: André)
Total Cost: $10 (Serves 8)
-Combine Strawberry Daiquiri Mix and Pink Lemonade, until the frozen mix dissolves
-Fill champagne flutes half-way with daiquiri/lemonade mix
-Fill the rest of the way with champagne, stir
Total Time: Under 5 minutes
And voila! Simple, inexpensive and tasty. If only Valentine’s Day came more than once a year…
Editor’s Note: The author of this article is over 21 years old. If you are under 21 or don’t drink alcohol, you can swap the champagne for sparkling apple cider and nix the Strawberry Daiquiri Mix. In that case, we suggest you add fresh strawberries to the drink for a nice finishing touch.
