Valentine’s Day is one of those holidays when people typically indulge in all that is sweet: box of chocolates, candy hearts, and delicious cocktails. But if you’re sticking to your New Year’s resolutions and forsaking all that is bad for the waistline, then you’re probably looking for guilt-free alternatives.
For those who are cocktail lovers, like myself, it’s hard to find a delicious tasting liqueur that isn’t loaded with sugar and other waist-expanding ingredients. Yet, I do want to share a toast with my wonderful husband on the day of love and romance without feeling guilty (and bloated) afterwards. Well look no further cocktail lovers! Devotion Vodka has created the world’s first-ever sugar and gluten-free flavored vodka and they’ve shared two delicious Valentine’s Day cocktail recipes with the ladies of Recess: Hearts Afire and Cupid’s Devotion. Is it possible to fall in love with vodka?
