Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 15, 2013
On February 13th, Atlanta wine shop and liquor store Capital City Package announced Valentine’s Day gift ideas for men and women who wanted to breakaway from the routine flowers and chocolates. Wine Specialist of Capital City Package Larry Kantrowitz offered customers unique tips for the love-filled holiday via e-newsletter.
“A great Valentine’s Day date could be creating fun cocktails while cooking dinner at home,” states Kantrowitz. “For those who don’t consider themselves 'mixologists', they’d be surprised at how easy to is to create a mixed drink, especially one that’s perfect for Valentine’s Day.”
According to Kantrowitz, a great Valentine’s Day drink for her is mixing half an ounce of Nikolaihof Elderflower Syrup, one and a half ounces of Bluecoat American Dry Gin, a quarter of an ounce of Charmette Crème de Cassis, and half an ounce of freshly squeezed lime juice, shaken over ice. A great drink for him is mixing Boulevard Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale, one and a half ounces of Knob Creek Bourbon, one ounce grapefruit juice and half an ounce of simple syrup.
“For our drink recipe for him, it’s best to pour half of the ale in a glass and strain the remaining ingredients, shaken over ice, into the glass,” says Kantrowitz. “A few dashes of Aphrodite Bitters and grapefruit zest are the perfect finishing touches.”
In addition to announcing creative cocktail recipes for Valentine’s Day, Capital City Package has also listed tips for pairing wine and chocolate on the blog section of its website; this blog post delineates which wines are best paired with milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate, bittersweet chocolate and flavored chocolate.
