I have a problem with leaving things until the last minute (I’m sure I’m not alone on this one). I think it must be genetic as my dad had the same problem. From what I remember, the beginning of almost every family holiday got doused in adrenaline due to the inevitable mandatory rush, whether we liked it or not, my dad would stall us. I like to imagine he did it on purpose either to wind my mum up or purely for the rush. Either way, it has been passed on to me. This year I’m a changed man, for Valentines day at least. I’ve teamed up with the cool cats at The Idle Man who have asked me to create three dishes to cook your girlfriend for Valentines day. As a result, I’ve rustled up a tried and tested, fail-proof valentines day survival plan for you fellas out there hoping to impress your lady.
Nothing screams love like a vibrant cocktail of Disaronno, iced cream and pink lemonade; A play on the typical ice cream float to send your dream-boat wild, a dreamfloat if you will.
Okay I’ll stop – They’re a treat at the best of times, but throw in a little bit of booze (or a lot) and some strawberries and you’re more than likely going to be the best boyfriend EVER. EVER.
