Romantic Comedy-Themed Cocktails for Valentine's Day‏

If you're single this year for Valentine's Day or would prefer a low-key night instead of an expensive dinner date, Skinnygirl Cocktails has you covered! Show some love to your best girlfriends this Valentine's Day with a girls' night in while hosting a romantic comedy themed movie and cocktails get together.

Whether you're looking for love like Shopgirl, laughing at the infamous deli scene or going old school, you'll have a delicious cocktail ~ along with a few best friends by your side for Valentine's Day. Be sure to pair the right treat with your drink too with our tips below!

Wine and chocolate are a match made in heaven, so toast to the perfect duo with Skinnygirl Cabernet Sauvignon and Skinnygirl Dark Chocolate Almond Truffles. Any chocolate with higher cocoa content works well with Skinnygjrl Cabernet Sauvignon as it highlights the mature tannins and bright acidity. Love almonds?

  1. The wine and chocolate sounds good to me, but thanks for the drink recipes for those who want a little harder drink. Would love to do a girl's night in movie night, it doesn't have to be VD but a good idea for singles. Thanks for sharing!
