Valentine’s Day is a very complicated holiday. For those in love and in committed relationships, it’s a day of sweet treats, flowers, heart-shaped boxes, and watching romantic comedies. For those folks who happen to be single on V-Day, it can be a depressing reminder of their own loneliness. But it can also be a day to show their independence. Either way, all three groups of people will probably eat some chocolate during the day. And, if you’re anything like us, nothing pairs better with chocolate than whiskey.

That’s why we’re here to help you pair your favorite chocolates with the best possible whiskeys. Check them all out below and either drown your sorrows in chocolate and alcohol or celebrate your love.
