Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays! Who doesn’t love a reason to celebrate love? *raises hand* I do! It’s the one day out of the year that your significant other has to be chivalrous and is obligated to put forth an effort to be romantic. Over the years, I have preferred to celebrate Valentine’s Day at home, for a number of reasons.
First, it’s less of a headache dealing with large crowds in restaurants. Secondly, it’s very cost-effective. Third, it’s more intimate. And last, but not least, it’s a chance to blow your significant other’s socks off by creating a new recipe. When creating a menu for a special holiday, simplicity is best! I suggest creating a meal that you’re comfortable preparing; that way, you don’t have to stress, especially if you aren’t the best cook. We don’t need any Pinterest fails.
This year for Valentine’s Day, I was feeling fancy. I created a three-course meal for my fiancé. I also paired each course with a delectable Belle Isle cocktail using Ruby Red Grapefruit and a cold coffee brew. Head over Belle Isle to read my Valentine’s Day tips here: https://bit.ly/2RxXU9c
