Love Potions & Sweet Treats : Recipe

Whether you're single, in a happy relationship, or riding the wave of playful flirtation via social media and hit or miss tinder dates, leaving you somewhere in between, Valentine's Day is coming for us all regardless.

While some of you may scoff at the sight of Mylar balloons, flashy greeting cards, and heart-shaped everything and anything, we have something to ease you over through this consumerist holiday.

We've concocted for you two tasty cocktails to either sip on with your honey for a romantic evening, or to indulge in rich and tasty protest with friends. Enjoy and drink responsibly!
