We’re calling it: Pampelle is the official drink of Valentine’s Day. Bright red in colour, this refreshing aperitif – the very first to be made from ruby grapefruits – tastes like summer in a bottle. It’s made in the Cognac region of France using an artisanal infusion of natural botanicals, and distilled three ways to give it a distinctive, bittersweet flavour profile. And with 30 per cent less sugar than similar aperitifs on the market, it’s practically good for you. Whip up a Pampelle spritz for your sweetheart (garnished with a slice of ruby grapefruit and a couple of strawberries, of course), and let the romancing begin.
Love it or hate it, there’s no denying there’s something a teeny bit adorable about acknowledging Valentine’s Day. Yeah it can be cringey (we all know that couple who share an OTT Instagram post every year), and no one agrees with the price of chocolate skyrocketing for the month of February, but it can also serve as a nice reminder to celebrate the people you care most about.
So whether you’re happily coupled up, want to spoil a friend or simply treat yo’ self (we wholeheartedly endorse this), here are some lovely gift ideas that you can get delivered to spread joy this V-Day.
