Guyssss it’s Valentine’s Day on Sunday. For some folks that means cozying up with BAE and a bottle of wine, while for others it’s downing shots at the bar to wash away your sorrows or celebrate your singledom. This year Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday, which would normally be a bit of a buzzkill, but Monday is President’s Day, and as a result lots of you will be basking in the glory that is a four day weekend. So … bottoms up!
In the spirit of love, I went hunting around the Internet for a drink that screamed “love me!” As I was looking, I realized that apparently I’ll consider any drink that’s red and/or sweet a Valentine’s Day drink, so narrowing down the choices was difficult. But I did it for you guys… because I love you.
