Spread the Love!
Valentines Day is quickly approaching and love is officially in the air! As you ready your menus and the special Valentines Day additions, we thought we would aim to inspire some creativity by sharing the creations of some of our favorite Pick on Us chefs and bartenders. Bring on the love!
But first, Champagne...
Whether it is a glass of sparkling Rose or simply a glass of Champagne, bubbles are the epitome of celebration. Dress up your glasses with a fruit and herb garnish such as fresh raspberries, blackberries, or even pomegranate seeds. We are often inspired by the creativity of our friends and liquid caterers @coupleofbartenders. who bring fresh mint and berries to their champagne glasses in this recent Instagram post:
Blood Oranges make for seasonal cocktails in the perfect hue of red!
As we went on our search for a cocktail that looked like love but tasted like the season, we arrived at a blood orange bourbon smash. Inspired by the recipe by How Sweet Eats – we loved the spicy vanilla sugar that enhanced the cocktail flavor as we sipped & the fresh sliced blood oranges made for a beautifully fragrant sip. We garnished our masterpiece with a ribbon of blood orange peel on the colorful beaded pick in red/black in honor of Valentines Day.
For the kids or the kids at heart…. A sweet treat with a scoop of sorbet!
Inspired by the blogger at Simply Today Life, We used raspberry sorbet, sprite, and pink lemonade garnished with fresh berries to create the perfect kid friendly, non-alcoholic drink for everyone to enjoy. Adding in a few conversation hearts and the decorative heart pick for the garnish and this fun treat makes Valentines Day dinner that much better!
And finally, coffee…
Whether it be the way you greet a loved one in the morning or the comforting end to a great meal, coffee is the perfect book end to Valentines Day. Our custom picks can be designed with any special message for your restaurant or loved ones. These custom picks also make great additions to Valentines Day coffee inspired gifts such as baskets or takeaways.
From Pick On Us to you with Love...
Happy Valentine's Day!
