If you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day at home this year (and who can blame you with this weekend’s forecast?), a delicious cocktail is in order. Marcella DiLonardo of Modest Marce concocted this lovely libation especially for the occasion. With pomegranate juice, thyme-infused simple syrup, and a splash of sparkling water, this refreshing treat is the perfect way to toast the ones you love. Cheers!
