It’s already Valentine’s Day season and while the usual flowers, candies, and teddy bear combo remain undefeated in expressing affection, who doesn’t like a good cocktail? For this edition of Spirit.Ed, we’re featuring a number of drinks that include cocktails and wines.

I’d like to be clear in saying that there’s no real rhyme or reason to this guide. We’re just going to share cocktails, wines, and whatever our heart pleases. If you don’t find anything to mix up or sip on for Valentine’s Day in this guide, you just didn’t want anything badly enough. Now, on with the show.
