Did you know cocktails and donuts match pretty well? Dunkin’ just released two cocktails for Valentine’s Day!

If you are lucky enough to have a Dunkin’ shop nearby, well you might be able to taste the Pink Velvetini and Chocolate Lovers Boozy Milkshake.

The donut and coffee chain decided to add something more than the classic pink macchiatos and heart-shaped donuts. So this week, Dunkin’ released two cocktails, coffee-based, with Macchiato coffee. Both recipes, the Pink Velvetini and the Chocolate Lovers Boozy Milkshake, were crafted by members of Dunkin’s R&D team. The first one is a twist on a classic martini, while the second is just a boozy milkshake. Both cocktails are made with vodka.
