“What’s Galentine’s Day? It’s only the best day of the year.” – Leslie Knope, Parks & Recreation


Whether you want to party it up Leslie Knope-style over waffles or create a cocktail party in your own home to host your gal pals, Galentine’s Day is a day to be celebrated! Affectionately placed on the calendar the day before Valentine’s Day, February 13th is a day to be enjoyed with your girlfriends because friends deserve some love this holiday season too!

In that spirit, here are three easy and fun Galantine’s Day cocktails.

Galentines’ Day Cocktail

  • 3 oz. Tito’s Vodka
  • 1 oz. Disaronno Amaretto
  • 6 oz. cranberry juice


Combine ingredients in a shaker over ice and shake until well chilled, about 5-10 seconds. Strain into a glass and garnish with a candy heart.

Aperol Spritz

  • 2 oz. Prosecco
  • 1 ¼ oz. Aperol
  • splash of soda water
  • orange wedge garnish


Combine all ingredients into an old fashioned or wine glass over ice, garnish with orange wedge and serve.

Mathilde Sparklers

  • 2 oz. Mathilde liqueur – your choice!
  • sparkling wine – Toso Brut recommended


Pour the Mathilde liqueur into a champagne flute and top with Toso Brut. Garnish with fresh fruit or herbs.

These cocktails are so fun and easy to make! Have them ready on a serving platter for guests to grab as they enter your home or setup a do it yourself bar. Serve festive snacks like heart shaped cookies or even bite size waffle bites to give your party a Parks & Recreation theme.
