His & Hers Valentines Day Cocktails

I know it seems a bit early to be posting ideas for Valentines' Day but I just couldn't wait any longer to share these "His and Hers" cocktails with y'all.  After all, you can never start planning too early!  I knew I wanted to do something with cherries and this was the end result.  If Daniel and I are cocktailing at home, he tends to prefer bourbon while I stick to vodka.  So for the guys, I created a simple sparkling cherry bourbon cocktail and for the ladies, I mixed up a chocolate cherry martini that is divine!  Normally, I don't focus on coordinating our cocktails but I thought it might be a fun idea for Valentine's Day!  Here's what you'll need to surprise your loved one on the big day.  (More photos at the end of the post.)
