Blend a little Irish into the way you show your love this Valentine’s month..

A bit delayed but… isn’t there some saying about how EVERYDAY should be V Day? I therefore bring to you yet another cocktail to present your loved one with.

The world over Valentine’s Day is celebrated as a day where one’s appreciation and love is expressed openly, or where one’s admiration is secretly shared. We Irish are known to be direct when it comes to declaring our affections, and so Tullamore D.E.W, the Irish whisky most preferred by the Irish, has 3 powerful phrases to share that we think you should consider blending into your romantic plans this year.

While others say that they “give their heart”, we prefer to say that our loved ones are a part of our heart. “Cuchlamochree” is an Irish term to express that your partner is the “vein of my heart”, so using this as a term of affection is a declaration that goes way beyond the usual.

If this isn’t enough to express how much your loved one is part of you, then “Mo Chuisie” will surely convince your audience that you are serious. Not satisfied that a vein in your heart is enough, then tell them that they are your pulse. “Mo Chuisie” means “my pulse”, but is interchangeable with “My love”.

Okay, if your expressions of love relating to anatomy fall short of attracting their affection, try “A chuid den tsaol“. This is a serious statement to make, and may be taken as a declaration of your long-term commitment, so use it carefully. To say “A chuid den tsaol” is to say that they are “My share of life”.

As Tullamore D.E.W is the perfect triple distilled and triple blended Irish whiskey, simply blend these terms into your conversation, and you will immediately have their attention and stir their curiosity.

But we are not sure why you’re trying so hard – you don’t need to go this far to win over the affections of Tullamore; you had us at hello.  

While we can’t vouch for its love powers we can certainly recommend its compelling sense of taste. More than just an inspiration for originality and creativity, the Valentines cocktail infused with bitters and sweet vermouth is a guaranteed blend to impress. Here’s the recipe for creating a perfect Valentines cocktail this month.
