Valentine’s Day Drinks for kids and adults

Valentine's Day Drinks

Valentine’s Day Drinks for kids and adults

I have had so much fun making drinks for myself and my kids. You can make these alcoholic or nonalcoholic depending on your needs. They taste good either way! I made three different drinks that can be made for kids or for adults. You can spice it up or play it down for kids. 

Here’s the Valentine’s Day drinks recipes for adults and children. 

The first one I did was for kids. 

Valentine's Day Drinks Ingredients

The ingredients in this drink for kids was: watermelon kool aid, sugar, lemon lime and ice. I made the kool aid up in a pitcher ( 1 pack of koolaid, 1 cup of sugar and 2 quarts of water). I then did half and half lemon lime and kool aid. It was bubbly and very tasty. The kids loved it and would feel so special having this as their dinner drink on Valentine’s Day. Put it in a nice wine glass and they would feel special on a day filled with love. 

The adult drinks were next. The first one I made was the strawberry margarita spritzer. The recipe was: 

1 shot of rum

1/8 cup of strawberry margarita mix

6 oz of lemon lime

Add crushed ice and enjoy! This was yummy. I do not like a lot of alcohol in mine. You can adjust this as needed. But if alcohol is tasted in my drink I almost can’t drink it. 

My second drink for adults I made was made like the kids drink. I made a watermelon rum mixer.

For this I used the kool aid I had already made (about 4 oz).

To that I added a shot of rum (0r 2 depending on your tastes) , lemon lime soda (4 oz) and crushed ice.

This tasted really yummy too. I just needed the little umbrella while I was drinking it. Oh and a pool boy. Who doesn’t need an umbrella drink and a pool boy? 

Making special Valentine’s Day Drinks is fun for you and the kids.

  41. dynah428 says:


  42. Melanie W. says:

    Great ideas for drinks! And if you are worried about your kid breaking your wine glasses, you could always go out and buy some plastic ones at a party store. That way they can still feel fancy and you cane keep your glasses in tact. 🙂

  43. M.Clark says:

    I love this recipe, I would definitely drink this. I have not had Cool Aid since I was a child, thank you for sharing this recipe.

  44. Angela Haskins says:

    These are great ideas, and I love that they can be made for any special occasion.

  45. Myrna Kasick says:

    This sounds really good, but I would substitute vodka for the rum.

  46. Michelle S says:

    The watermelon rum mixer sounds yummy! We have some really good rum from Jamaica that would make this drink really good.

  47. Natalie Weick says:


  48. Christine Beasley says:

  54. Tiffiny Brink says:

    Thanx for sharing. they all sound good and refreshing.

  55. melisa says:

  56. Great idea and sounds yummy too!

  57. linatek says:

    great idea very easy

  58. Melanie Herberg says:

    these would also be great for a 4th of July party

  59. Nancy Dyer says:

    I love making different kinds of punch. This is a fun idea for Valentine’s Day. My kids would love to help me mix up some different flavored drinks for them.

  60. Tammy Schweitzer says:

    Great ideal looks simple I bet it taste delicious also

  61. Ashley Vazquez says:

    Pinned! Can’t wait to try these! 🙂

  62. Christina Flores Pozzo says:

    These sound fun, thanks for the ideas 🙂

  63. Cassidy Ciazza-Morelli says:

    Simple and tasty !

  64. natalie parvis says:

    Yummy! This looks really good. Great idea!

  65. Raye W says:

    I love the idea of having special drinks for the kids and the adults both. My little guys would feel pretty special having their own versions.

  66. Monica Kirkham says:

    This will go over real well in my house. We often mix kool-aid with lemon lime pop because it actually saves money… we cut down on using the sugar because of the sugar in the pop, and don’t have to buy it as often… We can get a 3 liter of pop for $1.

  67. Robin Abrams says:

    Watermelon drinks what can I say but yummm. I will have to get to the store to get the things to make these. They sound like a winner to me.

  68. allyson becker says:

    Great recipes. Bring on the margaritas!

  69. Ashley Robertson says:

    Those look really good!

  70. Rebecca peters says:

    I could use one right now! lol

  71. Christy Anderson says:

    The kids drinks would be all I could try, but they are festive for V-day.

  72. Blessed Assurance says:

    I am sure the kids would enjoy crushed ice in their drinks as well.

  73. Janet Gillich says:

    Not a strawberry drink person but It would probably taste goos with another flavoe

  74. Dawn Rader says:

    great ideas!! My kids also like when you take a can of frozen cranberry juice and mix it with a 2 liter bottle of seven up.

    • Oh I’ve done that too Dawn and it’s one of my favorites as well. If I can keep the cranberry juice that long they drink juice so fast at my house! 🙂

  75. Janette Polivka says:

    Cute and simple idea! It will give the kids a chance to enjoy a drink with the adults and feel like they are a part of the celebration!

  76. danirenee1982 says:

    I love the fact that it is basically the same drink that way the kids dont feel left out!

  77. The strawberry margarita spritzer sounds delicious.

  78. sania wasif says:

    watermelon and lime are refreshing ingredients ..

  79. I love that you gave the non-alcoholic versions too! Thanks for linking up with the Tasty Tuesday’s Link-up. I have pinned your post to the Tasty’s Tuesday’s Pinterest Board!
