In preparation for Valentine’s Day, the Tulsa Health Department’s substance abuse prevention program and the StopDUI Task Force are urging residents to drink responsibly and safely or to try a fun mocktail instead. The StopDUI Task Force and the substance abuse prevention program of THD collaborated to present a Facebook Live mocktail tutorial for Valentine’s Day, which will take place on Friday, February 9. THD Prevention Specialist Kandice Lawson and Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Eric Kirby will share delicious recipes for festive drinks to prepare for Valentine’s Day.
To start off your night, you can make the Circus of Love mocktail, which is perfect for those who love sweets. The ingredients needed are: 1 large carbonated beverage, 1 jar of marshmallow fluff, 4 glasses, 1 container of cotton candy, and 1 container of sprinkles. To make this drink, roll the rim of the glass in marshmallow fluff and dip it in sprinkles before pouring in the carbonated beverage. Then add three to four handfuls of cotton candy into the glass and stir until well combined.
If you want something a little more fruity and refreshing, you can try out the Stop in the Name of Love mocktail. This drink is made with two ounces of sparkling hibiscus red grape juice, two ounces of lemon-lime soda, two ounces of orange juice, one orange wheel, seven to ten Valentine’s Candy Hearts, crushed ice
