Happy (almost) Valentine’s Day, lovelies!
In honor of this momentous occasion, I’m serving up another sweet pairing on the blog. As you all know, I’m a proud member of the #ViniqSquad and am thrilled to share some more delicious drink ideas featuring this unique shimmery liqueur.
One of the things I love about Viniq is that is tastes amazing by itself, so mixing up a cocktail with it is incredibly easy. The “Ruby Romance” is effortless and so appropriate for Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re sipping these over Galentine’s Day brunch or pre-gaming before heading out for date night, this sweet drink is a must for this weekend’s festivities.
Per usual, I’ve whipped up a makeup look that pairs perfectly with this romantic concoction. Read on for deets on how to create both!
Wear This: Glitter Lips
Inspired by the glimmering red Viniq Ruby, this statement making lip takes the classic red lip one step further. Start by creating a solid base with your fav red lipstick. (I always do foundation all over my lips followed by powder before adding any lip product for extra staying power!) For this particular look, a liquid lippie makes it a little easier. Next apply loose red glitter directly to the lip. If you press the glitter into the liquid lipstick before it dries, it won’t budge. If you want a little extra staying power, you can seal the deal with a lip sealing product. Voila!
Drink That: Ruby Romance
- 1 oz. Viniq® Ruby Shimmery Liqueur
- Fill with Strawberry Moscato
- Simple Syrup
- Edible Glitter Dust or Colored Sugar
Dip rim of Champagne flute in simple syrup (water works too, in a pinch!) and then lightly in glitter/sugar. Pour 1 oz Viniq Ruby into bottom of a Champagne flute. Fill with to the top with your fav Moscato (I used Barefoot). Ta-da!
