To me, nothing is better than a delicious strawberry. I think fresh fruit and citrus flavors create a wonderfully refreshing combination. Strawberries also create a beautiful appearance and have a way of stirring up emotions of love. This Valentine’s day, I am shaking things up with a muddled strawberry love potion. Want to know my secret? Just add 7UP®!
This 7UP Love Potion is easy to make with only 4-5 ingredients. You can pick up everything you need from your local Walmart. Go ahead and grab a 12 pack of 7UP because everyone will want seconds.
Once you have your 4 simple ingredients, it’s time to start shaking things up. To get started, you need to wash and cut the fresh strawberries and begin muddling them with a twelve ounce can of 7UP. I recommend keeping a 12 pack of 7UP in your pantry because you can just add 7UP to create so many delicious drinks.
Now we get to the fun. It is time to pull out your favorite shaker, add 7UP, throw in your ice, strawberries, and lime juice then give it a couple of shakes.
Time to add the sizzle to your love potion with a childhood favorite of mine, popping candy. Some like salt or sugar rimmed glasses but for Valentine’s I think we need our drinks to make a bigger spark. Rim as usual but replace your usual with this pop rockin’ candy. Not only will this 7UP Love Potion look lovely but it will make your guests LOVE STRUCK! If you are 21 and older, you can opt to strengthen the potion by adding vodka. I recommend adding one shot of lemon lime flavored vodka.
7UP Love Potion

How to make those Sizzlin Strawberries
1. Take the strawberries you set aside from the Love Potion and spoon a little melted chocolate on them.
2. Sprinkle the popping candy on strawberry until coated to your preference and place on a wax covered sheet then move to the freezer for 5-10 minutes
3. Remove from freezer, slice to garnish your love potion rim!
