Valentine’s Day Cocktails: Cupid’s Broken Arrow

Everyone loves Valentine’s Day Cocktails, right? How can you go wrong with pink or red alcoholic drinks that are both fruity and delicious?! Today I’m sharing one of my favorite cocktails for Valentine’s Day: Cupid’s Broken Arrow. Technically it was actually created as an “anti” Valentine’s Day cocktail (a cocktail for singles), but I think it’s super delicious, and I still enjoy it even though I’m happily married!

Cupid's Broken Arrow is one of my favorite Valentine's Day cocktails! All you need is vodka, Triple Sec, cranberry juice, lime juice, and a cherry!

It’s bright red, tasty, and it’s made with ingredients you probably already have in your liquor cabinet!

Valentine’s Day Cocktails: Cupid’s Broken Arrow

Ingredients:

  • 3 oz mango vodka
  • 1 oz cranberry juice
  • 1/2 oz Triple Sec
  • splash of lime juice
  • 1 cherry

NOTE: If you want to use plain, unflavored vodka for this drink, it’s still totally delicious! The mango just gives it a refreshing, sweet taste that contrasts perfectly with the bitterness of the cranberry juice.

Directions:

Add four or five ice cubes to a cocktail strainer, then pour in all the liquid ingredients (not the cherry!) and shake well. Strain into a martini glass, stab the cherry with a toothpick or swizzle stick (or make your own Valentine’s Day swizzle stick!), set the cherry in the drink, and enjoy!

Super pretty, right?! I love how bright the drink turns out!
