At X MUSE we don’t just believe that Valentine’s day needs to be stereotypical. Don’t get us wrong - we love flowers, chocolates and a romantic card - but sometimes a little something different does the trick. Why not celebrate the day of romance with Valentine’s day cocktails - vodka based of course - paired with fragrant flavours and extra pizazz to make your significant other’s cupid dreams come true.
Treat Your Partner This Valentine's Day
When it comes to Valentine's day, it can be hard to know what to get your partner or new lover. Some advice to keep you out of trouble when it comes to gifting, stay away from anything diet or weight loss related, a kitchen appliance (unless specifically asked for), or a gadget that you secretly want more than them. You can’t go wrong with either a dinner in or taking them out!
If you are planning a romantic Valentine’s day evening, then we have some pointers to keep the night moving along and the spirits high. Keep in mind that eating a rich dessert after an indulgent dinner can sometimes be too much to handle, but we have the perfect alternative dessert cocktails.
Swap out your chocolate cake for a classic cocktail for Valentine’s day! Chances are that you’ve already tried some of the classic vodka cocktails like a Martini or a bloody mary. X MUSE vodka makes the perfect base for a decadent vodka dessert cocktail.
