Your Guide to Hosting the Ultimate Galentine's Day Pizza + Cocktail Party
The Venue Report
byThe Venue Report

Valentine's Day is so much more than romance and chocolates because let's be real, life is not always like a box of chocolates. Heck, sometimes you just simply want to have friends over and drink some dranks. Your idea of a bumping Galentine's date night is very straightforward: "gone with the gin." So invite your best buds over for a floral fiesta extravaganza paired with these incredible cocktail recipes provided by the mixologists behind Barcon Cocktail Co below. 

If want to try the following drink recipes immediately you can taste test all of them at the upcoming Modern Love Ladies Night Event on February 9th at brand new venue space Building 177 in San Diego. 



Invite all of em'. The more the merrier. Your bestie, your moms bestie, your co-workers, the barista who always seems to know when you need that extra shot of espresso, the woman on instagram that you have been dying to meet. Get everyone together and celebrate. 

We're going to make this part real easy for you. Simply save this to your camera roll on your phone, group text it to your friends, then add the date and address below the invite. 


No decor needed here. Just a few blooms. These gorgeous arrangements were created by Layered Vintage.


The fancy folk at Barcon Cocktail Co came up with these. They look fancy but they are real easy. 

 Unicorn Shake Cocktail Recipe

Inspired by the quote, "Being a human is too complicated. Be a unicorn instead." 

   1.5oz Strawberry-Marshmallow infused vodka. (The Strawberry Marshmallow infused vodka, is as simple as it sounds. Quarter 10 fresh strawberries and place them, as well as a half bag of mini marshmallows, into sealed container with vodka. It will need to sit for 48-hours before ready to serve. The better the vodka, the smoother the taste.​) 

     .5 oz Soy Milk (Very little soy milk, used for consistency)

     .75oz Strawberry Coulis

           Sprinkles, Wafer
