Valentine’s Day Cocktail – Cupid’s Arrow

Valentine's Day Cocktail - Cupid's ArrowTo go along with the deliciousness that is the Scarlet Kiss, I’ve got another Valentine’s day cocktail recipe for you. This one, I think, should qualify as a dessert it looks so good! It’s called Cupid’s Arrow and is filled with berries and topped with chocolate shavings.

In my opinion, it’s the perfect cocktail to drink if you need to get more fruit into your diet. Also, it has chocolate sprinkles and today I’ve decided that chocolate is a fruit, so you are good to go.
You can always count on Mr. Magpie to find a way to help you achieve your dietary goals through cocktails.

Cupid’s Arrow is composed of vodka, blood orange liqueur, orange juice, lemon juice, lemon lime soda (such as Sprite) and sugar (or splenda). As I mentioned in my previous post, Karlynn and I don’t normally celebrate Valentine’s day by going out because, instead, we celebrate the anniversary of our first date on the 11th. Having said that, we are absolutely going to celebrate by enjoying a delicious cocktail or two and Cupid’s Arrow is going to be one of them.

Whether you are dating, married or single, this cocktail is still an excellent option that will add a bit of decadence to your day so give it a whirl using the recipe below and don’t forget to let me know what you thought of it in the comments.

    My goddaughter says chocolate is a vegetable because it comes from a bean. Therefore it’s perfectly healthy lol

    Being a health nut such as myself, I’m always looking for ways to increase my fruit intake. \U0001f62c
