12 Drinks to Drink on Valentine's Day

By • February 14, 2014 • 0 Comments

Like so many Hallmark copywriters before us, we've tried our hands at a poem to sum up our thoughts about the year's most ostentatiously romantic holiday:

Negronis are red,
Curaçao is blue,
So long as you don't infuse your liquor with conversation hearts,
We will support you.

Whether you're boozing with your sweetie, knocking back negronis to mirror the bitterness in your heart, or abstaining from alcohol so you can focus all of your attention on chocolate cake, we have a bevvy of beverages for you to choose from tonight. Go on, Romeo -- shake things up a bit.

If you're hitting the liquor store, make one of these:
