Although 2021 has already started showing hope that we will one day soon be able to return to a normal day to day life, it is safe to assume that most of us will be spending this valentine’s day safely in our homes. But, just because we aren’t allowed out, doesn’t mean that we are not able to have a fab evening in!

Other than being kind to your wallet, a romantic evening in is a great way to reconnect and not be too worried about having to restrain from engaging in a bit of PDA. That being said, just because its a lockdown-valentines day is no excuse to not go all in and make it special!

Plus, on a little more of a selfish note, who would mind a bit of escapism at this time?

No matter what your plans are, cocktails are not just a great addition, it is a must! So gents, don your finest suits and ladies slip into that sexy red dress, wheel out the drinks trolley and let our best valentine’s day cocktail recipes to help make the most of your lockdown-valentine’s day.
