Dolce Vita Wine Shop's Valentine Drink Pick

Let Cupid's Arrow—the drink—strike you this Valentine's Day.

We'll be celebrating Valentine's Day as a family this year. So instead of candle light and wine, there will be take out pizza and milk spills. It's not exactly romantic, but it definitely has its own charm, and if luck is on our side, my husband and I will have our children in bed by 8 p.m., at which point, I'll break out the good chocolate and, perhaps, mix up this delightful drink suggestion from Dan Keyport at Dolce Vita Wine Shop in Chaska.

Cupid's Arrow

With Valentine's Day coming up, why not try something a little flirty and fun? This Cupid's Arrow recipe is sweet and slightly nutty, just like that special someone.  

2 ounces Tito's Homemade Vodka
Fresh cherries
3/4 ounce lemon juice
3/4 ounce Gozio Amaretto Liqueur
3 Dashes Bittercube Jamaican #2 Bitters

Add all ingredients to a cocktail glass. Add crushed ice and stir. Re-top with crushed ice, plus one more cherry on top, and serve.
