Crafts and cocktails you’ll love this Valentine’s Day

ASHWAUBENON (WLUK) Valentine's Day is a week away!

Rachel and Emily are crafting not only a fun project, but also a cocktail for the sweet holiday!

Rachel showed how to make an easy Valentine's Day decoration.

She made a garland using felt in shades of reds, pinks, grays and purples. The felt is cut into shapes of hearts or circles and then strung together using a sewing machine.

Emily whipped up an easy cocktail to create for your Valentine!

Valentine Mimosa

Instead of using orange juice, like you would for a traditional mimosa, we are going to use strawberries!

What you need:

Frozen Strawberries

Fresh Strawberries (for garnish optional!)


Champagne (for non-alcoholic use 7up, ginger ale, or a sparkling water!)

Skewers (for garnish optional!)

Here's how to create:

Use frozen strawberries for this recipe -- not fresh. Frozen work better when blending and straining.

Take about a cup of frozen strawberries and thaw them. Then blend them together.

Once they are blended you will want to strain them -- you want to get rid of all the seeds. After strained you are left with a nice puree.

One tip: Save that juice from when the strawberries are thawing -- that will add nice flavor to your drink.

Next, pop the bubbly! Add your champagne first before adding the puree!

**If you want a non-alcoholic drink, just use a diet lemon-lime drink, or ginger ale**

After the glass is filled, add that juice from when the strawberries were thawing, and then puree!

OPTIONAL: Add the Strawberry Heart on a skewer for a garnish!
