It feels like Christmas is still being packed away and now Valentine's Day is already here! Are you ready to woo your significant other?
If you’ve been a good partner and have shown love and appreciation to your beau all year, then this should be easy for you. However, if you need to make up for some past transgressions (or have someone new on the scene), you may benefit from some advice and a few cheeky cocktails to set the mood.
- You can never beat a classic, home-cooked meal. Skip the lines and the crowd and cook a feast together at home, in fact, why not make it a competition? Test out your skills and see who can cook the best pizza, pasta or dessert!
- Getting a gift? Make it something you can enjoy together. Whether it's a staycation at a nearby hotel or an epic bottle of wine or even one of our 500ml One to Share cocktails.
- 3. Keep it fun! It should be lightheaded and a day to show your appreciation for each other - so don't take it too seriously. If you really want to let your hair down together, here are a few of our favourite cocktails to set the mood:
