Valentine’s Day is supposed to be all about sharing your love, right? So why not literally get into the spirit of things with a sharing cocktail at one of our favourite bars?
If dark spirits are more your thing, try the delicious Bottle of Manhattan for two (£17.50) on the menu at Hawksmoor. The warming blend of bourbon, vermouth, Maraschino, Angostura Bitters and a dash of absinthe is served on an antique tray with cubes of ice, long swirls of orange peel and scrummy house-infused cherries.
