No worries—you don’t need a significant other to partake in this day. This year, we are fully embracing Galentine’s Day and all it has to offer. It doesn’t need to be about romantic love. It can simply be a holiday to share with your best girlfriends.
Girls’ night in means you will need cocktails on deck. Of course, Chilled has the best of the best when it comes to pink and Valentine’s Day-inspired cocktails. Whether your besties are tequila lovers or indulge in whiskey, this list has something for everyone.
