What to Serve with Your Love Potion Cocktail


Light and slightly sweet, this fruit cocktail drink is a crowd-pleaser. It goes well with savory or salty foods, and pairs nicely with desserts.

The sweetness of this drink will help to balance out the saltiness or savory flavor of the meal items that you are serving.

This is a very quick and easy appetizer to prepare, so it's sure to impress your guests at your next dinner or cocktail party.


Love Potion Cocktail is a fantastic cocktail with three ingredients, each of which has been amplified in intensity.

This cocktail's sweetness can be modified to your preference. For a different texture, shaved ice can be used instead of ice cubes.

For added presentation flare, various garnishes can be placed on the glass rim.

Popular Substitutions & Additions

This Love Potion Cocktail comes in three parts. Some like their drinks on the sweeter side, some on the sour side, and some in between.

The recipe is just meant to be a guide to help you make it, so each drink is customized to your taste buds.

To create a cocktail with this much sweet flavor, adjust the amount of Grenadine in the mixture.

You can also include other garnishes, I personally love pineapple slices, but feel free to substitute any other tropical fruit according to available ingredients.

If you’re feeling saucy, add a cinnamon stick or cardamom pod and this will give it an extra spicy kick!

These Love Potion Cocktails should be prepared one at a time.

Make one up for someone special or enjoy one alone with your favorite book to help relax from the stress of day-to-day life.

How To Store Love Potion Amaretto Cocktail

Best Way To Store Love Potion Cocktail Leftover

Place any leftover drink in a pitcher or bottle to keep it cool.

Make sure leftovers are sterilized before moving them to another container. Then, before reserving it, properly mix it.

How Long Will Love Potion Cocktail Last In the Fridge?

If kept refrigerated, the mixture should last at least 4 days to a week, if not longer.

It won't spoil after that time, but the flavor won't be as good as it was when you first made it.

Can I Freeze Love Potion Cocktail

Like any other drink, the Love Potion Cocktail can be frozen.

For a delicious summer treat, pour any leftovers into popsicle molds. Make sure the freezer is set to high while freezing it.

Love Potion Cocktail FAQs

Is it possible to prepare drinks ahead of time?

You may also start batching your beverages ahead of time by putting all shelf-stable components in a tightly sealed container in the fridge.

Even if you aren't ready to start measuring and mixing, chilling all your cocktail ingredients (vermouth, spirits, and syrups) the night before is a good idea.

Can I garnish it with different fruit?

Yes. Adding a variety of garnishes is a nice idea. If you don't care for strawberries or limes, any tropical fruit will work.

Some people add crushed mint leaves to their drink as well.

Is it possible to make a Love Potion Cocktail blended with ice?

Yes, you may blend this cocktail with ice and keep the flavor the same; however, adding ice to the cocktail adds texture and is always a refreshing and cool way to start any Valentine's Day event.

Can I serve it in a highball glass?

Yes, you are free to use whatever type of glass you choose based on your preferences and how you want it to be served; however, I prefer to use elegant-looking glasses for a more extra flair of presentation, but anything that is available will do.

Can I use vodka instead in the mix?

Yes. The typical Love Potion recipe often uses a shot of vodka instead of Amaretto.
