Love Potion #9 Cocktail Recipe for Valentine's Day: When Whiskey Meets Champagne

Love champagne, but deep down you're a whiskey kind of girl? You can have both with this refreshing cranberry whiskey cocktail recipe. And with its pretty red color, this Love Potion #9 cocktail is perfect for Valentine's Day.

The refreshing cocktail is a combination of whiskey or bourbon, Grand Marnier (orange liqueur), cranberry juice and champagne for a little fizz action. The ingredients are shaken together in a cocktail shaker before being poured over ice. 

For fun, garnish this whiskey champagne cocktail with a cute heart-shaped cranberry ice cube. If you want the cocktail even redder, add some red food coloring to the shaker.
