3 Pre-Valentine’s Day cocktails part 2

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.

This month we are going to drink pink and feel lovely.

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