This Might Be The Easiest V-Day Cocktail Recipe Ever

When settling in for a romantic Valentine's Day at home, we're thinking you might have things on your mind other than whipping up a fancy, 10-step craft cocktail. That doesn't mean you want to crack open a pair of PBRs, either. The happy medium, in our opinion, is a warm, sexy, chocolate-infused cocktail you can share with your sweetie. Dutch Tea is a cocktail novice's dream. It's minimally stressful, and perfectly on-theme. It's one that hasn't been done to death already, so you even get to surprise your Valentine with something new. Mix it up in no time and then get back to doing, you know, what you'd rather be doing.
