We’ve picked out some of the most romantic drinking spots in the local area, whether it’s with Valentine’s in mind or for a good old-fashioned date night.
For a cosy but quirky night out with someone special visit The Toy Shop in Putney. Sip on colourful and inventive cocktails in vibrant and comfy booths. Try a Joyful Gin Fizz or a Ralph the Robot, perfect for two to share.
The Pod Bar in Wimbledon has just launched its new cocktail menu. Go for a classic such as a Prosecco Bellini or dare to be different with the Coco Loco Cooler made with pineapple. Once you’ve washed those down, enjoy a late-night dance.
A little further afield but worth the journey is Amuse Bouche in Parsons Green – a renowned romantic spot with a superb selection of Champagnes and a delicious seasonal bar bites. Pick a weekend for live music too.
If it’s got to the last minute or you fancy doing something different, why not stay indoors and have a go at making your own cocktails? Try the Crystal Head Vodka’s Red Tempest; visit www.foodandflavour.co.uk for the full recipe.
