Make It Love At First Sip This Valentine’s Day

With our busy lives we can often find the days, week and months flying by without making time to show our loved ones how much we appreciate and care for them. Valentine’s Day is a great opportunity for this. With Christmas being nearly 2 months ago, it’s likely the weeks have gone by in a blur. Why not use Valentines Day to celebrate your love?

In this blog post we have put together some delicious cocktails that you can create to toast to your relationship and how far you have come. These cocktails are sure to make it love at first sip this Valentine’s Day.

Pink and red cocktails are a really popular choice for a romantic drink. The romantic day in February is full of pinks and reds, so bring that into your drinks. The easiest ways to do this is to add pomegranate, cranberry or cherry into your drinks, whether they are alcoholic or not. Deliciously sweet red grenadine gives you the colour you want and can provide some pretty spectacular results for the eye, when used the right way.
