Valentine's Day = House of Cards Season 2

Courtesy of D’USSÉ Cognac
Who needs an overcrowded restaurant, flowers that die, and Hallmark cards that make even sentimentalists cringe when you have Frank Underwood, political conspiracy and a bottle of booze? Exactly, you don't.
For those of us who are not partaking in the over-fluffed holiday designed for couples "in love" we'll be indulging on the finer things in life: epic emotional drama and a well made drink.
For the true Underwood fans we have the perfect cocktail--sweet, witty with a nice little bite:
