It’s our favorite time of the year—that’s aside from Christmas and the FHM 100 Sexiest Victory Party; okay, it’s our THIRD favorite time of the year! But who’s counting, right? What’s more important is it’s now February. The love month. The okay-lang-magwaldas-para-sa-date month. The only month men are allowed to be ultra-cheesy.

But do you have any idea HOW to be cheesy? Are you and your lady constantly bickering about your lack of romance? Do you attribute your singlehood to your lack of wooing skills? Well, we’re going to solve these all for you! FHM will be dishing out daily how-to-be-a-Don-Romantiko tips the whole month of February!

Is your girl constantly stressed? Does this affect your time together? Does she prefer lying down...and not talking to you than doing something "fun"? Does it seem like her very demanding work is draining every drop of life out of her?

Are you reading this alone while drinking your third bottle of beer because she's too tired to be with you?!

Well, we say it's your job to make her life easier! You can shower her with gifts, affection, or just about every bit of niceties a man can muster. Or you can also fix her up a glass of her favorite cocktail...

 FHM recently spent time with the alcohol masters over at Draft Gastropub for a crash course on how to prepare the perfect female de-stressing drink. Hand her any of these four cocktails and watch her be re-energized with every sip.

A reminder, though: Drink moderately! After all, you don't want to be both too tipsy if you plan to "burn" all that alcohol after. (Cue: sexay muzak!)
