No Valentine's Day dinner for two would be complete without a little bubbly on the side, and Sweet Hospitality Group's "The Artist" cocktail fits the bill nicely. It combines Prosecco with homemade hibiscus-mint syrup for that perfect sweet-tart balance and a touch of St. Germain liqueur to complement the floral notes of hibiscus.
