Valentine's Day Cocktails in Miami: Toast to Love
Valentine's Day. The most romantic day of the year. By now, you've made the dinner reservations (if not, here's a handy, dandy guide), bought the chocolate (here's where to get the finest sweets in Miami) and flowers, and purchased a card that's funny and sincere, without being too creepy.

Now, on to the cocktails. Sure, you could take the easy way out and pop open a bottle of champers, but that takes little imagination. We suggest taking your true love for a few of these romantic Valentine's Day cocktails to start up the evening. Each one is sweet or spicy, with many featuring subtle rose, chocolate, and honey notes.
Who knows? After a few Jalapeño Passions or Birds and Bees, you might skip dinner altogether. And that makes the five bucks you dropped on a card totally worth it.

The birds and the bees talk may have been the most uncomfortable moment in your childhood, but now that you're a grownup it's time to make some good associations. A cocktail made with Solerno Blood Orange, Stoli Sticki (honey flavored vodka), almond milk, egg whites and rose water -- basically everything romantic in a glass -- is a great start. Share this drink with your date and you won't have to worry about that "birds and the bees" talk. Nature will take its course ($18).
