Shake or stir this precious strawberry cocktail from Goodtaste! The combination of herbal gin and bitter Campari call to mind the profile of a classic Negroni, but if these spirits are not for you, feel free to skip the Campari altogether or swap out the gin for vodka or a light golden rum.

Why wait for dessert? Indulge in this decadent cocktail with vanilla vodka, Godiva white chocolate and raspberry puree from Chris Deas of Top Shelf Shakerz and Nick’s Fish Dive & Oyster Bar.
Give your honey the royale treatment with this Valentine’s Day spin on a classic Kir Royale. This version is also spiked with a bit of Hendrick’s, a rose-infused gin. If you’d like, you also can garnish with a petal or two from a (food-safe) rose.
Recreate Fleming’s “Stoli Bombshell,” a ruby red cocktail garnished with a rosemary speared raspberry. It’s vodka-based, but if that’s not your spirit than you could also try gin, tequila blanca or white rum.
