feel the love

I'm not one of those cynical singletons who rejects the notion of love and romance... but what's a girl to do when she finds herself home alone on february 14th?

Sorry? What was that? Drink cocktails and eat crisps? Oh, ok then...

Especially for the lovely Cottage Cheese, here is my Valentine cocktail:

Misty Bitch (taken from "the cocktail - 200 fabulous drinks" by Jane Rocca)
30ml vodka
30 ml Campari
1 lime
splash of pink grapefruit juice

Mix vodka and campari in a highball glass. Add fresh lime to taste and top with pink grapefruit juice. Oh how i love thee...

And how wonderful of the clever people at Tyrrells to bring back their "lovely chips" in time for this special day. Their "strawberry, sweet chilli and white wine potato chips" are the most heavenly creation and i'm almost through a whole bag already...

For each case sold, 10 % of the sales price will be donated to Breast Cancer Haven, so get them at Waitrose while you can!

And my final treat of the day will be a cup of "love" tea from Pukka. I couldn't resist the packaging... With a relaxing blend of rose, chamomile and lavender in an "organic blend to warm your heart", i'm looking forward to a night filled with sweet dreams...


  1. Thanks Lisa! I am definitely going to make a Misty Bitch soon! I would love to make that pretty pink drink tonight, however I drank far too many pints last night celebrating a pal's birthday, and I'm still recovering. What will be your "hair of the dog" cocktail to get you through that hangover tomorrow? Happy Valentine's day, love!

  2. Who needs men when you have booze :)

  3. OMG those crisps!!! I believe you that they are lovely, but they sound quite bizarre!

    Happy Valentines Day!

  6. Those crisps sound amazing! Bet I've missed them by now :(
    God bless Waitrose and cocktails and crisps, oh my!

  7. Thanks for lovely comments! I think i got the last bag of those crisps in my local Waitrose and i'm saving them to have with my next cocktail recipe... x
