From pink drinks to spicy serves, here’s our favourite whisky cocktails to drink this Valentine’s (Ballantine’s) Day.

Get the whipped cream out – it’s time for hot cocoa. Make your big Valentine’s night in a super cosy one with a mug of Whisky Hot Chocolate. Sweet, creamy and seriously warming. This Valentine’s cocktail is for those boxset and PJ nights.
