3 Pre-Valentine’s Day cocktails

It’s never to early to celebrate or drown your sorrow .  

I like to start celebrating any important date way before the actual date. We mixed some special drinks just for this occasion. A per-festive cocktail selection made with “love” in mind.

Don’t forget, the most important thing is to love yourself. So, feel free to treat yourself with any of the following cocktails.
