Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! The day of love, filled with cards, sweet words, hearts, flowers, and all things red and pink, like Skinny Pink Cosmo Cocktails!
Are you planning a special Valentine’s Day surprise for your sweetheart? Maybe a special dinner out at their favorite restaurant or a cozy date night at home? If you’re looking for a delicious drink recipe to sip at your celebration, look no further! This Skinny Pink Cosmo Cocktail is just the thing to add a festive pink drink to your table, and it tastes awesome, too!
The only thing this “skinny” drink won’t add is unnecessary carbs and calories. The calorie count for this drink is pretty impressive: 1 ounce of vodka has about 65 calories (and NO carbs!), 1 ounce of pomegranate juice has about 15 calories, while the 1/2 ounce of lime juice only has around 8 calories, and the Crystal Light only racks up at 5 calories per serving.
So, you can enjoy this super delicious pink drink without wrecking your diet (leave that to the Valentine’s Day dessert, instead!).
Here’s what you’ll need to put together this delightful rosy-hued drink:
– 1 oz Vodka
– 1.5 oz club soda
– 1 oz pomegranate juice
– 1/8 packet of Crystal light Cherry Pomegranate mix
– 1/2 oz lime juice
1. Add all of the ingredients (except club soda) into a drink shaker with ice.
2. Shake it up!
3. Then, pour the club soda into the drink shaker, and stir to mix well with the rest of the drink ingredients.
4. Pour into a glass (without the ice) and enjoy with your Valentine’s Day sweetheart.
Garnish with a slice of strawberry or lime for an even prettier glass.
Don’t forget to accessorize your glass with a fun Valentine’s Day themed magnetic glass charm from Simply Charmed.
We hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

We all know people who love coffee, and we all know people who LOVE coffee, and then, of course, we know people who are down right fanatical about their coffee. The ones in the latter group are often self proclaimed coffee snobs who wear that badge proudly. These days fun coffee themed gifts abound, but here are the gifts for coffee snobs that are sure to bring a smile to their face this holiday season! Don’t worry, for those people (like us) who are coffee snobs and wine aficionados ? Well we’ve got them covered, too!

Gifts For Coffee Snobs
If you don’t know what a Coffee Pour Over is, don’t worry, your gift recipient does and it’s probably their #1 wishlist item for this year! Here’s a quick rundown for you though: Coffee pour overs allow you to extract optimum flavor from your favorite ground coffee. Coffee tastes best when it is fresh, the flavors begin to change in as little as 10 minutes after it has been brewed. This ceramic pour over makes it simple to brew more often, without filling landfills with K-Cups, making a fresh rich cup of coffee every time.
Coffee snobs know that it takes a manual grinder with adjustable settings to get the perfect cup each time! This version is affordable, has rave reviews, and compliments the Ceramic Coffee Pour Over perfectly.
Every coffee snob knows that you have to use high quality beans that are custom roasted or it’s just not real coffee. These merlot-infused beans make the perfect after-dinner brew. The 100% Arabica beans are aged in oak wine barrels for a unique profile of fresh, red berry flavors and subtle hints of currants and blackberries. Perfect for wow-ing both the coffee snob and wine lover in your life!
This tongue in cheek print from Amazon Handmade will make every coffee snob smile when they see it, and truly makes the perfect gift if you are also a bit of a coffee snob!
Another treasure from Amazon Handmade, this hand-poured wine bottle candle is handmade from 100% soy wax and comes with a wood wick for delightful ambiance. It has all the luxury, richness, and uniqueness that coffee snob hearts delight in!
