Galentine’s Day is on Thursday, Feb. 13, so it’s time to kick back with your favorite ladies and have a drink. Up your Galentine’s Day game with an Instagram-worthy cocktail. These recipes are all shades of pink and red (which also happens to make them great for Valentine's Day), but more important than how they look is how they taste. Don’t worry, these drinks are all delicious.

CHAMPAGNE GINGER BEER PUNCH This recipe from Brooklyn Crafted is the perfect fruity blend with a kick. Plus, a punch is a great way to avoid making individual cocktails if you have a big group of gal pals celebrating Galentine's Day.

  • 1/3 cup simple syrup
  • 8 slices fresh ginger
  • 6 ounces room-temperature steeped Jasmine tea
  • 3 ounces vodka (optional)
  • 1 ½ ounces fresh lemon juice
  • A generous splash of Santa Margherita Sparkling Rosé

Directions: First, make the Jasmine tea and let it cool down to room temperature. Then, muddle ginger and simple syrup together. Then, add tea, lemon juice and vodka (which could be left out of the recipe if you prefer). Strain over a glass and add a generous splash of Santa Margherita Sparkling Rosé on top. Garnish with a lemon twist.

THE LOW MAINTENANCE COCKTAIL OK, that's not the official name, but it might as well be. Not every Galentine’s Day celebration needs to be a big to-do. If you and your girls are just binge-watching “The Bachelor” in your sweats, try Two Chicks Cocktails. They’re canned and pre-mixed, so it’s the perfect no-fuss option. The Paloma (sparkling tequila and grapefruit) comes in a pink can, if you care about being on-theme, but hey, the Citrus Margarita (sparkling tequila and citrus) and Vodka Fizz (sparkling vodka, pear and elderflower) sound tasty too.
