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.

  2. I always like making two kinds of drinks, one nonalcoholic, even for adults who have to be careful about meds. These are such great ideas.

  3. Wow. The drinks sound so delicious. I will have to try these. Thanks a lot. And yes, I could use a pool boy and an umbrella drink……….STAT!

  4. I love both of these drink ideas. You could also change the kool-aid color for different holidays.

  5. I haven’t made my own, but the kids love sparkling juices in wine glasses during the holidays. They feel so special

  6. 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. 🙂

  7. 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.

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

  9. Love the kid recipe. My nieces always want Shirley Temples, so I’m sure they would love this “cocktail”!

  10. i absolutely love the watermelon kool-aid and keep it on hand so this would be great! thanks!

  11. Its so cold outside burrrr! I am thinking about Hot chocolate with little variety colored marshmallows on top! The kids Love it! Seems more appropriate for Now anyhow! Lol! I haven’t seen this much snow in a long time. Have a Great Day!

  12. Nice, simple ideas, means they’re more likely to be carried out in my home. There are some flavored rums that might work as well (for the adult drinks of course)!

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

    1. 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! 🙂

  18. 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!

  19. 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!
