Valentine’s Day is great if you are in a relationship, but, can be a bit sad if you are single….UNLESS you embrace it!!! Couples call is “Valentine’s Day” , I prefer to embrace my singleness and call it “Independence Day”!
And what screams single independence more than the favorite cocktail of the girls that helped us through many a singles Valentine’s Day: The Sex and The City Cosmopolitan!
Pink, delicious, and sure to make you forget everything but your cat after a couple. So CHEERS! Embrace your singleness and enjoy!
