Last week week we shared with you the Tres Hombres which is perfect for your upcoming Super Bowl party. It’s just as good out of a red solo cup as it is out of a crystal glass. This year we are going to warm up your winter with some drink recipes featuring the award winning Pura Vida tequila with two drink recipes which are perfect for Valentine’s Day.

All opinions expresses are 100% my own (with the exception of a friend or who remarked on this delicious drink) and I only share those things I feel may be of interest to my readers.
Pictured above is the Pura Vida Pico Sunrise. Now, you have probably heard of the Tequila Sunrise, but this is so much better! First of all it does not involve the use of grenadine to give it that beautiful rosy color. Pomegranate is the secret ingredient in this drink recipe. Planning a romantic breakfast in bed for Valentine’s Day? Make sure to include this refreshing drink on the tray. Or planning a romantic get away? Maybe just enjoying time together on the patio or porch of your own home, but wherever you are you will enjoy the sunrise or sunset with this crisp, cool, drink with a hint of sweet.
Strawberries are traditionally served around Valentine’s Day. Beautiful, rich reds just lend themselves to the holiday. Dipped in chocolate, sliced and served it wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day if it didn’t include strawberries for many households. Ours is one of them, starting with Strawberry Pancakes.
The blush of the strawberries crushed in the flavorful Anejo tequila gives just the right balance of sweet with a hint of heat. Don’t let the basil frighten you, it’s actually a really nice compliment to the sweetness, however you can make it without. But just think what would a Mojito be without the mint? Still good, just not as good as it could be.
So when is the best time to serve these drinks? Anytime for me, but Sully Erna, lead singer of Grammy nominated, multi-platinum rock band Godsmack , has a brand new tradition that is catching the rock world by storm- 8:15, Pura Vida Tequila Time. Fans everywhere are taking a moment at 8:15PM every day, no matter where they are in whatever time zone they happen to be, to raise a toast to the good life with Pura Vida Tequila. If you are looking for a good time to serve, why not 8:15? Who knows maybe it’s the new happy hour – especially if the kids are tucked into bed and you and your significant other can have some time to spend together.
Sound good to you? They ARE! So here’s your chance to create these drinks recipes at home. As always, Drink Responsibly.
