Happy Valentine’s Day! (well… almost)

I don’t know about you, but after you’ve been dating almost a century (JK Chris… Love you!) Okay, eight years…  somehow going out and paying $$$ for a five-course meal along with 500+ couples doesn’t sound fun anymore. Netflix + Chill anyone?

The last few Valentine’s, Chris and I have enjoyed staying in and creating a romantic vibe at home instead of dealing with the crowds and overpriced plates. Cheers to long-term relationships!

I think it’s safe to say I’ve gotten my entire family hooked on Bumbu. Why? It’s freaking AMAZING. I’m not big on taking shots, but this is one spirt I can definitely enjoy straight out of the bottle.

Using its native Caribbean ingredients and spices with no artificial colors or flavors, this smooth rum is distilled in small batches by hand and is sure to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. (Literally)

We’re not huge drinkers, but I do take great joy in the occasional fancy AF cocktail, especially on holidays… This Bumbu + Boo XOXO cocktail is the perfect drink to enjoy on Valentine’s day- with your boo!
