Holy red-and-white-heart-patterned-everything, wouldn’t you know it, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! Whether you embrace this slightly cheesy day of romance with wild abandon or try to avoid it (in absolute futility), it has to be said it’s pretty bad form to leave your partner hanging on this day of luuuuuurve. The very least you can do is pour them a rather fabulous cocktail when they get back from a grueling day at the proverbial salt mines.

To help you on your way, we’ve copped a few awesome cocktail recipes that feature The Duchess Non-alcoholic Gin & Tonic as the star ingredient. Now you can have your cocktail and drink it, even though V-day falls on a stupid school night this year.

No need to sulk if you don’t have a love buddy in your life at the moment. You can totally make these for your single lady/guy friends as well. Bottoms up!
