At Home on Valentine’s Day

I am not a big fan for going out on Valentine’s Day. I much prefer the whole idea of sharing a special night alone with the one you love—and showing them how much. If you are still looking for some supplementary and distinctive ideas, here are some that you can incorporate into your evening.•• Santa Cruz Organic has a line of organic chocolate syrups. Pour them over whatever you like—Raspberry Chocolate sauce over profiteroles filled with whipped cream, strawberries dipped in the heated Mint-Chocolate, or (you fill in the blanks)—and be assured that your indulgence is of the highest standards. •• Why not start the night with a special cocktail to get in the mood? Your loved one will enjoy and feel very impressed that you made the effort to create the Love Potion, whose ingredients themselves are a labor of love. Enjoy your night!

Love Potion
1 1/2 oz G'vine Floraison gin
1/2 oz sloe gin
1/2 oz fresh lime juice
1 egg white
1/2 oz Monin raspberry syrup
1/2 oz pomegranate juice
3 dashes rhubarb bitters
Garnish: blood orange slice
Mix all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a slice of blood orange. Be sure to incoporate all your feelings of love!
