As I said on Tuesday. this is clearly food week. For those of you who swing by this page for DIY and home decor, have no fear, plenty of that is on the way. I’ve been at somewhat of a creative standstill (until today, my house has been a disaster), however food ideas are flowing freely. I think it may have something to do with my issues with emotional eating. Haha! Who knows. Anyway, moving on…
Today I thought it would be fun to share a sweet and creamy cocktail for Valentine’s Day. It’s somewhat inspired by a cake batter martini, but kissed with color to make it perfectly appropriate for the upcoming holiday. Plus, I had these really cute heart sprinkles that I wanted to use on something.
The result is this creamy, sweet, and soft martini, similar to a melted milkshake. I was having a hard time coming up with a name (because of my creative standstill) so I asked my BFF. Without hesitation, she said, “Sweetie Martini”. It was perfect! (Thanks, Krista.)
And, on that note, let’s whip one up.
Here’s what you will need:
2 ounces vanilla vodka
2 ounces Godiva white chocolate liqueur
1 ounce amaretto liqueur
1/2 ounce grenadine
2 ounces half and half
Honey and sprinkles for garnish
Let’s get shaking.
Pour a small amount of honey onto one plate. On another plate, put some sprinkles. Coat the rim of a martini glass in the honey and then in the sprinkles. Set aside.
In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add the remaining ingredients. Shake vigorously. Strain into your rimmed martini glass.
Sip and enjoy!
Delicious plus adorable equals the perfect cocktail to celebrate Valentine’s Day. What do you think?
Now for some of my favorite links.

First, I want to give a huge shout out to the fabulous Alison of The Alison Show. I finally got the chance to meet her in person a few weeks ago and she is just fabulous.

Have you ever heard of Rue Magazine? I was actually featured on their site a while back, however, I didn’t realize their awesomeness until recently. They publish a free online magazine quarterly, and I was really impressed by their latest issue. If you’re looking for decorating ideas and inspiration, you should check it out.
Fourteen things to stop stressing about.
