Love is in the air, suddenly hearts and roses seem to populate the world and the movie theaters are showing nothing but romantic comedies. It's enough to drive anyone to drink, singles and couples alike. Fortunately, there are bars in L.A. that feel ya and have created many Valentine cocktails that you can either toast your love with or use to drink this red-and-pink day away.

Pablo Moix of STK, that "sexy steakhouse" in West Hollywood, steered clear of the usual chocolate martini fare and instead created tequila-based cocktails that can be shared by lovers, proudly ordered by dudes and enjoyed by the single ladies. Cupid's Arrow, Love Potion #1 and Kiss de Coco ($14 each) are just specials for Valentine's Day but ::whispering:: you may still be able to order it from Pablo in the days after, too.

Where to find that uber-sweet chocolate martini or fishbowls of love potion?
