THE STORY BEHIND THE COCKTAIL NAME
Like every great story this cocktail inspiration starts with a night on whiskey and ends in what would end up being my first love. Corny I know, but I’m a romantic and this cocktail for me brings back all those thoughts and emotions. Finding myself hungover on the couch of my long time crush and best friend. We both joked about being alone with our feels on valentines hence “feelentines”, so we planned to do all the cute things couples would do, little did we know. The sweet flavours of nuts, stone fruit and chocolate reminiscent of the breakfast we shared on the beach building sandcastles on the beach both too nervous to even hold each other’s hands. With an unexpected presentation and end, this drink evokes all those emotions of that first love, the nerves, innocence and unpredictablility.
