Valentine's Day is around the corner! Let's celebrate!
My husband, Willy, and I definitely have a love of cocktails in common. We take turns being in charge of mixing them up for one another. Sometimes we go for the old standards – Manhattans especially (one of the readings at our wedding was the Manhattan recipe off the back of a bitters bottle!) – and sometimes we like to try something new.
This Valentine's, we'll be mixing up some recipes from Alicia Rebensdorf, the owner of the bar Tuffet in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. She came up with this recipes just for us and took her inspiration from the Love & Victory Ours Decanter Set, mixing up a pair of His & Hers cocktail recipes.

1 oz rosemary gin (let one sprig of rosemary infuse in a cup of gin for 1-2 days)
