It’s almost here – that special day devoted to all things love. A lot of people focus on having a Valentine to celebrate the day with, but no matter whether your status is single, “it’s complicated”, or old married couple, you deserve a cocktail! The following drink recipes are single serving, but feel free to double up if you’re making drinks for two. Or if you feel like you might need a second drink. 😉
