It’s that time of year again… when young (and old) hearts feel obligated to buy flowers, book a fancy restaurant, and little hearts are pitter pat in anticipation of all the ooey, gooey, drippy romance fit for a Mexican telenovela. Whether you are into Valentine’s Day or not, looking to impress a hot date, or share a sip with friends while burning photos of your ex, and poking a voodoo dall resembling him or her with stick pins, I have cocktails for you.
