A Bouquet Of Valentine’s Day Cocktails

Delicious

CHOO CHOO CHOOSE

It’s that time of year again. Love is in the air, little naked babies are flying around shooting people with arrows, and… wait a minute.

You do know what today is, right? Well she sure does. And let me guess, you forgot, again.

You forgot to order the dozen long stem roses. Forgot to make reservations at that romantic little restaurant downtown. And even forgot to pick-up a heart shaped box of chocolates.

In the immortal words of Douglas Adams, “Don’t Panic”, all is not lost yet.
