Valentine's Day Cocktails

Its that time of the year again... That time where boyfriends and husbands are scrambling at the last minute to find gifts, flowers, candy, etc to keep that special lady in their life happy. That time of the year where you meet someone, and that little midget in a diaper shoots you in the ass with an arrow and you fall in love with that person you've been chasing, or who's been chasing you..

So I say why do all of this sober?? If you gonna fall in love and either make the best DECISION or worse MISTAKE you've ever made, why not do it with some very tasty cocktails??? So since I'm working a  Valentines day Karaoke party, I'll share with you all some of the tasty cocktails I will be serving..
