Can we all just be honest and admit that Valentine’s day is a ridiculous holiday ?! Seriously, do we need a day where we feel pressured to act romantic; a day where you feel ridiculous among other smooching couples in restaurants; a day where shops try to pressure you into buying tacky looking underwear. It’s not often my feminist side rears its head but I find this celebration to be a bit backwards. Perhaps it’s time men spent the day waxing nether regions and forking out their hard-earnt money on ridiculous underwear and us woman can simply stop by the florist and buy a half-dead rose on our way home. It seems like a better deal to me. Or, we can just put an end to this ridiculous day and get on with life.
This Raspberry, Lychee and Rose Gin Fizz is for all my fellow haters of Valentine’s Day. Cheers to you all!
