Striving to wow your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day? Or perhaps you plan to spend the holiday entertaining friends. In any event, it is my personal philosophy that the best way to anyone’s heart is through his or her cocktail glass, which is why I have made a hobby of blending ‘tinis for special occasions and casual gatherings alike.
Behold, “Valentinis”.an unforgettable way to celebrate Cupid’s favorite occasion, just as long as you don’t consume too many!
