Perfect Pairs for Valentine's Day
Not to be indiscreet, but what are you doing for Valentine’s Day? If you haven’t made plans yet, here are some hints for impressing your sweetheart without leaving the comfort of home. A few decorative touches, a round of sparkling cocktails, a gourmet recipe, and you’ll be on your way to a very romantic evening...
Hint #1: Feather your love nest
There are so many little ways to create a Valentine’s Day mood at home, and they don’t have to break your budget:
• Light up the room with a glass bowl of floating flower candles from CandlesJustOnline.com. (These high quality paraffin candles do not contain scent, so they will not create olfactory conflicts with your wine.)
• Fill a decorative dish with Necco Conversation Hearts to pop in each other’s mouths while you watch a romantic movie on DVD.
• Hide romantic messages in exotic tongues all around your home. Visit Omniglot.com for ways to say “I love you” in every language from Afrikaans to Zulu.
Hint #2: Stir up some excitement
Sooner or later, your Valentine will call for a drink. Make it a Chandon La Vie en Rosé . Douse one sugar cube in rose water and place at the bottom of a sparkling wine flute. Slowly add Chandon Rosé or Chandon Reserve Pinot Noir Rosé to within an inch of the top of the flute. Add ½ ounce fresh strawberry purée and garnish with a strawberry slice. Makes 1 cocktail.
Hint #3: Go heart-healthy for dinner
Yes, you could order takeout for your Valentine’s Day feast. But wouldn’t it be more impressive to serve a healthy, homemade gourmet entrée? Perry Hoffman is the Chef at our etoile Restaurant and he’s prepared many a romantic meal over the years. His recipe for Seared Scottish Salmon with Roasted Beets is full of Vitamin E and C, so it’s good for your heart. Chef Perry Hoffman recommends you pair this dish with our Reserve Pinot Noir Rosé or our Pinot Noir still wine.
Happy Valentine’s Day from Club Chandon. We hope your evening will be full of sparkle and romance!
