This Valentine’s Day will be a little different than most on account of the pandemic, with many couples deciding to stay at home rather than going out for a romantic dinner. And frankly, I’m right there with them, hunkering down and staying safe until I get the vaccine.
But that doesn’t mean that you can’t still make the most of things while at home. Valentine’s Day is this Sunday, and there’s no better way to celebrate than with a little romantic Sunday Funday action. Yes people, I’m talking about getting your drink on! And if you play your cards right, it’ll hopefully lead to some “other” type of action, if you know what I mean. 😀
So what’s on the menu? Our friends at Captain Morgan has some easy-to-make cocktails that will make anyone fall in love. For a festive colorful cocktail, you can make their signature Captain Morgan V-Day Sliced and Spiced, or for a fun spin on a classic, serve up their Captain Morgan Sugar and Spice Mule.
