A whiskey cocktail - picture supplied

Blend a little Irish into the way you show your love this Valentine’s Day and some Tullamore D.E.W.

While others say that they “give their heart”, we prefer to say that our loved ones are a part of our heart. “Cuchlamochree” is an Irish term to express that your partner is the “vein of my heart”, so using this as a term of affection is a declaration that goes way beyond the usual. 

If this isn’t enough to express how much your loved one is part of you, then “Mo Chuisie” will surely convince your audience that you are serious. Not satisfied that a vein in your heart is enough, then tell them that they are your pulse. “Mo Chuisie” means “my pulse”, but is interchangeable with “My love”.

Tullamore D.E.W is a smooth, triple distilled and triple blended Irish whiskey so you won't go wrong if you forget the phrases but just serve this cocktail!
