Valentine’s Day is supposed to be the most romantic day of all. Whether you celebrate it because of tradition, or because you have a special someone to cozy up to, we recommend mixing up a little cocktail and combining it with a sexy little masquerade mask for an added bit of allure and romance. Here we’ve rounded up five of our V-Day favorites with an added twist, so you can celebrate in style.

We love the deep red hue of this cranberry cocktail. With its simple twist on a classic cosmopolitan, it’s sure to add a bit of romance to your evening. We especially love it paired with these simple colombina-style masquerade masks in a matching wine-red hue.
2. Charleston Fizz

Valentine’s Day is just as much about sweet flirtation as it is about love and romance. If you just want to have a little fun—whether with friends or a certain someone—then this sweet Charleston Fizz is the perfect cocktail for you. With its soft peachy-pink hue and light sparkle, it’s got all the right ingredients for a scintillating evening. We love it paired with elegant masks in metallic and pastel shades for a fun game of peek-a-boo.

If you like avoiding all of the clichés associated with Valentine’s Day (think all things heart-shaped and pink and red), but you still want to celebrate, then this cocktail is just the thing. With warm flavors and smoky notes, it pairs beautifully with ornate gold masks for a night to remember.
5. Blood Orange Sangria

We love to pair it with these festive red and gold masks for an unexpected burst of color that’ll definitely add an element of surprise to your celebrations.
