Her Cocktail:

Part of a “His and Hers” Valentine’s Day drink duo. The ratings difference between the “His” and “Hers” drink were so drastic, we rated them them separately. Check out Day One to see how "His" ranked.

Rank: Third Place

Rating: 4.1/5 hearts


- 1 fluid ounce of raspberry vodka

- 1 fluid ounce of creme de cacao

- 1 teaspoon of chocolate syrup

- 1 fluid ounce of half-and-half creme

- 2 maraschino cherries

A wonderful contender for top drink, the Her Cocktail outclasses its counterpart in almost every way. With an appearance similar to chocolate milk, the drink has a delicious balance between chocolate and cherry flavors. For more Valentine’s flair, we recommend garnishing your glass with a strawberry. Light and tasty, the “Her Cocktail” was one of our favorites.
