4 Valentine’s Day Coffee Drink Ideas to Try

Bring a touch of sweetness to your morning coffee with these decadent twists, perfect for Valentine’s Day.

1 min read

Valentine’s Day presents us with many opportunities to spoil the ones we love. Chocolate’s great and so are flowers, but if you’re looking for a fresh way to surprise your special someone, why not start the day with these Valentine’s Day coffee drink ideas? 

You can use any type of coffee you like in the recipes here, which make two servings. For an extra act of sweetness, consider buying your significant other’s favorite whole beans and grinding them before brewing for the freshest, best-tasting cup possible. 

Three coffee drinks in a row, one with ice, milk and a straw, and two in pouring glasses.

How to Brew Your Coffee

A standard drip coffee maker will work for any of these drinks, or you can mix it up and use a French press, pour over, or iced if desired (the tropical version tastes extra-delicious served cold).

Creamy Red Velvet Coffee

Red Velvet Cake is the inspiration for this coffee drink, which gets its signature color from the use of food coloring. This rich chocolatey cake is typically paired with cream cheese frosting; for your coffee version, top your drink with whipped cream in lieu of the icing. Feeling celebratory? Add a bit of chocolate liqueur.

Directions:

1.

2.
Divide the pot of fresh coffee evenly among two mugs.
3.
Split the cocoa powder, granulated sugar and vanilla extract evenly among the mugs and stir to combine.
4.
Add a drop of red food coloring to each mug until it reaches the desired color.
5.
Taste, adjust the sweetness, top with whipped cream and holiday-themed sprinkles.

Honey in tea, sure. But have you ever had honey in your coffee? It’s a welcome change of pace from sugar, lending a natural sweetness that pairs well with coffee. Try different kinds of honey if you like. Make this sweet and spicy brew and serve alongside heart-shaped cinnamon rolls.

Divide the coffee between two mugs and add cinnamon and honey. Taste and adjust as needed.
3.
Add milk or cream, and top with whipped cream, if desired.
4.
If you’re making the whipped cream from scratch, add a tablespoon of honey and a dash of cinnamon to the cream. Alternately, foam ¼ cup milk and create your own version of latte art.

White Chocolate and Raspberry Coffee

Directions:

1.
This festive drink calls for white chocolate and raspberry syrups, like the kind used at your favorite coffee shop. They’re great for dressing up your morning cup of Joe, plus they work well with seltzers or drizzled on top of ice cream.
2.
Divide the coffee between two mugs and add the syrups to taste.
3.
Top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings. Serve with fresh raspberries on the side.

Tropical Coconut Chocolate Coffee

For rich and flavorful coffee, it’s hard to beat the brew made with a French press coffee maker. A nice dark roast works well for this method and canned coconut milk is the ultimate indulgence (don’t shake the can before opening!). Store any leftover coffee in the fridge and drink it iced the next day—it’s delicious.
