While we firmly believe that one doesn’t need a dedicated day to celebrate love, nonetheless why not celebrate the day with some concoctions that are brilliantly aromatic and pleasing on the palate… slightly sweet and colourful – much like your better half! While they might take a bit of perfection to make, they are worth the effort, sip after sip!
