When it comes to Valentine's Day, the first thing I think of is chocolate and the second is roses. 

So, for today's Five Things Friday, I thought it would be fun to share some chocolate and rose inspired cocktail and dessert recipes that I found on Pinterest recently.


  • First up is this bourbon black forest cocktail, because it sounds like a glorious combination.
  • Next we have La Rosette. It features two of my favorite things, St-Germain and rosé champagne. It doesn't get any easier, or tastier, than this cocktail.
  • For the last cocktail we have this rose water and gin cocktail. I can only imagine how amazing the rose water tastes blended with gin. I will be trying this one very, very soon.


  • Continuing with the rose theme, we have these rosé champagne mini cupcakes. Champage in the cake batter AND the icing? Yes, please!
  • I had to end with classic chocolate truffles. Because, chocolate. Also, the recipe is extremely easy. I am definitely making these next week.

Happy Friday friends!
