Drinks for One: An Anti-Valentine’s Day Party

Drinks for One: An Anti-Valentine’s Day Party

Singletons, rejoice. It’s not always a bad thing to be single on Valentine’s Day. We all know it beats being in a bad relationship. Besides, when February 14th rolls around, you won’t have to buy any drugstore teddy bears, red roses, or chocolate strawberries. Unless you want them for yourself, that is. You can curl up on the couch with a good book (drink) and enjoy a stress-free day doing whatever the heck you feel like doing. So, while you’re busy dancing around the house in your pajamas, venture out and try these drinks for one this Anti-Valentine’s Day. Yes, more wine for you, friend.
