Chocolate Strawberry Fizz: Valentine’s Day Drink

By Guest Blogger Denise from STL Motherhood
 
There’s nothing that says Valentine’s Day more than chocolate, sweet strawberries…and bourbon. Chocolate bourbon. I’ve partnered once again with Here Today to bring you the latest holiday bargains from my favorite St. Louis discount store. They challenged me to create a special Valentine cocktail using awesome deals from their Cheers department! They always have a good selection of wine and spirits, and right now they’re featuring deals on favored bourbons and vodkas! The hardest part? Deciding what to bring home!

I scooped up a cart full of ingredients, without any sort of recipe in mind. I’ve never invented a drink before, so grabbed a few core ingredients: bourbon, rum and champagne. I also picked up a half dozen flavors of Vess soda, bottled lemonade and frozen fruit–strawberries and pineapple! The fruit was 99 cents a bag, so I got extra for a round of smoothies. The flavored vodkas, from Oddka were just $4.98 had had delightfully strange flavors like Apple Pie, Carmel Popcorn and Wasabi! I might have to try some of those later. The Woodstock bourbons and Black Cove Spiced rum were just $7.98.
