When it comes to Valentine’s day, nothing beats a beautiful cocktail to impress your valentine. This cocktail, dubbed “Cupid’s Arrow” is one such drink. Combining a variety of flavors such as blood orange, lemon and berry, this is sure to impress the one you love.

It’s also a very easy cocktail to make and takes about 5-10 minutes to make, meaning you can make more when they ask you for a second round (which they will, it’s that good!). You can use any type of berry in this cocktail that you wish, although in this particular photo I used cherries and cranberries for a splash or colour but feel free to mix things up as desired. If you want to get extra fancy, you can also sprinkle some chocolate shavings on top as a garnish. The choice is yours!
