Perfect Valentine's Day Cocktails

Whatever your plans for February 14th, an elegant cocktail two will probably be a welcome addition. 

Irish drinks brand, Grace O'Malley has given us two beautiful cocktail recipes you can make using its heather-infused gin. One uses sweet white vermouth and rose bitters to create a fragrant tipple while the other teams gin with one of our other favourites - chocolate! 

Give them a try this weekend.
