The perfect drink and dessert pairings to complete your Valentine’s Day romances.

While wine is traditionally associated with romantic evenings such as Valentine’s Day, it does not give you much chance to show off your cocktail making skills. This year, pick up a bottle of gin and roll up your sleeves in the kitchen to impress your sweetheart. Whether you spend February 14th out on the town or lounging around at home, these are the perfect cocktail and dessert combinations to end off the day of romance.Lavender Gin Martinilemon cream tart2
