Spend Time Together on Valentine's Day
February 05, 2019 by MakerPlace
In honor of Cupid’s special day, we’ve put together some of our favorite recipes so you can focus less on the stress of planning your night and more on being together with the one you love. Instead of scouring your Pinterest board for the same presents you see every February 14th, this year, give the gift of time well spent and create your meal vis-á-vis.
Start With A Kiss
Pucker up for a Honey Kiss Cocktail. Packed with fresh fruit, veggies, and honey, this Hudson & Lee original recipe is sure to ignite the spark for a romantic evening. We’ve doubled their recipe to ensure you and your other half have plenty to sip on.
How To Make It (Serves 2):
Muddle grapefruit juice, lime juice, cucumber slices, and mint leaves in a cocktail shaker. Add honey simple syrup, vodka or gin, and ice, and shake for 30 seconds. Pour the mixture in a glass with ice and top with sparkling water. Finish it off with a cucumber slice as a garnish.
From Italy with Love
Bring the romance of Italy into your kitchen with Mason Jars’ non-traditional Caprese Salad. By blending the classic flavors of tomato, mozzarella, and basil with the punch of shallots and red wine vinegar, your taste buds will be tingling for another bite.
A Taste of Summer
The aroma that comes from these sizzling salmon burgers will make you feel like you’re cooking in a beachside cottage, just enjoying the breeze. Place these patties on a toasted bun or fresh bed of arugula.
As Sweet as Sugar
Satisfy your sweet tooth with Humble Elephant’s totally-from-scratch twist on an old classic. Roll out the cookie dough, shake up the ice cream, and add whatever toppings your heart desires to these playful ice cream sundaes. Bonus: if you’re feeling festive, you can even make your own homemade whipped cream.
Here's to the Future
Remember this night forever with something to look forward to. Mason Jars’ pineapple-infused vodka will give you the sweet kick of liquid gold, fully infused and ready for imbibing in just one short month.
