Valentine Day Ideas - For the Adults

Looking for that perfect gift idea? Maybe you are trying to be creative in your planning. Well, here are a few ideas that should help steer you in the right direction.

Valentine Drink Recipes:

1) The Valentini
A custom made drink from the King Of Martinis~Dan Minjares (Now that's an impressive gift!)
You can contact Dan at: kingofmartinis@yahoo.com
Make in an Ice-Filled Cocktail Shaker
1.5 oz Stoli Raspberry Vodka
.75 oz Chambord
1.5 oz Cranberry Juice
.50 oz Triple Sec
2 Squeezes of Fresh Lime
Splash of Simple Syrup
Shaken and Strained into a Martini Glass
Float with a splash of Champagne
Garnish with a Cherry or Fresh Raspberry

We would also like to thank Dan and his lovely wife Mary for creating this drink especially for KDC Events! We love you =)


2) Valentine Soda (from ParentsConnect.com)
1½ cups and ¼ cup slightly softened nonfat vanilla frozen yogurt
1 1/3 cups hulled strawberries
1 cup chilled club soda
Blend 1½ cups frozen yogurt and hulled strawberries in a blender. Divide between two tall glasses and add chilled club soda to each glass.Top each with ¼ cup nonfat vanilla frozen yogurt or whip cream!


Other Gift Ideas:

1)Ooh, la, la Lotion: Margarita Bloom
Made with delicious ingredient goodness like aloe vera, shea butter, rice bran oil and more your skin will be singing! (Ooh, la, la Lotion from Margarita Bloom)

***APHRODITE: A SCENT TO FALL IN LOVE WITH***
Luscious pink fluffy clouds of cotton candy, caramel and vanilla with fruity notes, lily, licorice blossoms and spicy bergamot, Sicilian oranges, raspberry and fig leaf. This complex fragrance will hold you in its spell like cupid with his bow and arrow of love….a fragrance worthy of APHRODITE herself. Everyone will be in love with you…er your fragrance I mean!


2) Homemade Hershey Kiss Rose Buds:
(might require supplies from a craft store & maybe a friendly neighborhood florist)
- Take 2 Hershey kisses and attach them bottom to bottom (use tape if you are going to eat)
- Wrap the kisses in a red or pink cellophane
- Tie with a ribbon
- Attach the kiss rose bud to a floral wire - twist around the bottom of the kiss
- Wrap the bottom of the cellophane and the wire, with green floral tape
- Arrange with some artificial greenery in a floral display box or vase

Here is a photo found at Fabulous site called Bridal Buds:

We hope this helps you be a little more creative this holiday, rather than giving the ordinary chocolates and flowers =)

Happy Valentine's Day!
