History
The Saint Valentine was created by David Wondrich who is known for his historical take on drinks in books such as Imbibe!. On his Esquire blog, Wondrich shares a recipe for Saint Valentine and suggests using a 'full-flavored white rum such as 10 Cane or Flor de Caña.' Another excellent option for rum is Plantation 3 Stars.
