February is the most romantic month of the year, thanks to Valentine's Day. So every cocktail you create should be crafted with love in mind! Whether you are in a long-term relationship, are at the beginning of a new romance, or have sworn off the opposite sex for the foreseeable, these drinks will be sure to lift your spirits and make you more inclined towards compassion.

St Luke’s Love Song

This drink might celebrate a different saint, but the sentiment is the same. Infused with a beautiful lavender syrup that brings a calming, floral aroma, this cocktail is definitely one you make when you want to impress. Mixed with Triple Sec, bourbon, and bitters, topped with a maraschino cherry, it makes the perfect nightcap.

Fantasy Lover

When real life isn’t up to scratch, this cocktail will help inspire your imagination. Made up of a shot of Malibu, peach schnapps, Galliano, and Cointreau, this is a
potent but delicious blend that is sure to be the drink of your dreams. Close
your eyes and enjoy your fantasy!

P.S. I Love You

For those who believe in the deepest and most altruistic kind of love, this cocktail is ideal. This drink is a rich, creamy blend of Kahlua, dark rum, Amaretto, and Amarula, topped with double cream and garnished with chocolate flakes. It tastes like the most indulgent dessert and should always be made with love.

Cocktail Lover

If cocktails are your one true love, this is a drink you should enjoy. When real-life partners have let you down, you can depend on this beverage to make you feel good. It is a fruity mix of gin, rum, lemon juice, and pineapple juice, sure to bring nothing but love to your heart. Or, if you are trying to impress a cocktail connoisseur, this is the drink to present them with!

Mr Kipling’s Love Juice

You can pretty much guarantee that anything coming from Mr Kipling will taste better
than any love juice you might find elsewhere. This cocktail does not
disappoint. Made with cherry brandy, Amaretto, and pineapple juice, this tastes
as sweet and as moreish as you’d expect. Who needs exceedingly good cakes when
you have cocktails like this?

If cocktails are the drinks of love, then you can be sure to charm your significant other with any of these drinks. Practice before the big day and you’ll be able to serve up the perfect aphrodisiac in a glass.

Bartender's top tip

Just like cooking, consider using seasonal ingredients to make your cocktails. Fresh summer fruits, herbs, and edible flowers can add a fresh twist to your drinks, while autumn and winter call for ingredients like apple cider, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Seasonal ingredients are not only at their peak of flavor but also can inspire you to create themed drinks that fit the time of year.
