Love is taking over Giraffes Can Bake at the moment, and I am a-okay with that! Valentine’s Day seems to be a bit of a marmite holiday, and I am one of the lovers! Sure, you could say it’s a commercial  holiday exploited by Hallmark and chocolate companies but it’s also about love, and what’s wrong with that? A day to celebrate love, in all forms, is a day I’m a fan of. You don’t need to buy into the commercial side of it to celebrate love. And in this often scary and sad world, I think we all need a day where we take that extra step to tell the people we care about that we love them and wouldn’t be about them. So yes, I am firmly in the pro-Valentine’s Day camp.

Today is the day!!! Captain America: Civil War release day! Well in the UK it is anyway, sorry America! Yep, that’s right – us little British folk get the new Captain America movie before actual America! That’s what you get for throwing our tea in the harbour! Just kidding, I love y’all really! We seem to get most Marvel movies about a week before the US, I’m not too sure why but I’m certainly not complaining. Because I LOVE Marvel and the sooner the better, especially when it’s my boo, Steve Rogers! I couldn’t let the occasion pass without a cocktail in his honour, particularly when this film is Civil War – all kinds of crazy shit is going to go down and so I’m supporting my boy the only way I know how, creating a recipe in his name! The Captain America Slushy Cocktail is me shouting loud and clear that I am firmly in the #TEAMCAP camp!
