Valentine's Day is coming and so are all the romance-themed goodies that we need in our lives. Whether you're single or taken, you can enjoy Krispy Kreme Valentine's Day doughnuts, Lush Valentine's Day bath bombs or Ben & Jerry's Valentine's Day ice cream.

However, with so much buzz surrounding February 14th it's possible that you've forgotten about another very important event coming up - Pancake Day.

That's right, the one day of the year when it's acceptable to eat pancakes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Like your pancakes sweet? Go for a traditional sugar and lemon, or opt for a generous helping of Nutella. Prefer your pancakes savoury? Make yourself a ham and cheese crepe, or team them with bacon and eggs for breakfast.

Mouth watering? Same.

But if you want your pancakes a bit sweet and a bit boozy, then Marks & Spencer has you covered. Enter their latest launch: lemon, gin and tonic sauce.

Before you assume that they use flavouring to get that authentic juniper taste, the bottle contains real 4% alcohol gin.

You can get your hands on this delicious combo for just £2 at any Marks & Spencer food departments and Food Halls in the UK.

They're also selling Belgian Chocolate Sauce, Sticky Toffee Sauce and Really Raspberry Sauce for anyone who doesn't want their pancakes drizzled with gin.

You've got a few weeks to decide which flavour you'll go for, as Pancake Day - also known as Shrove Tuesday - isn't until March 5th.

We're so ready.
