There’s something for every kind of Valentine - use this flavorful list to explore some of the tastiest flavors Delaware has to offer!
The 'Smug and In Love' Valentine :
Nothing says love like a classic wine and chocolate pairing! We love a classic Harvest Ridge Winery Red No. 47 with chocolate and strawberries!
The 'DIY' Valentine :
Show your loved one how much you care with a carefully crafted beverage! The Rose Spritz from the Painted Stave Distilling will do just that.
Painted Stave Distilling Botanical Dry Gin
2 oz. Glendalough Rose Gin
1 oz. fresh lime juice
Instructions: In a glass filled with ice, pour 2 ounces Glendalough Rose Gin. Add 1 ounce fresh lime juice, and top it with grapefruit soda. Garnish with a grapefruit wheel and fresh sprig of mint.
The ‘very, Very Single’ Valentine :
If only you could invoke a little love for just one day...
It might not summon you a lover, but you won’t feel so alone with Revelation Craft Brewing’s Love Potion #2, an awesome combo that was meant to be - the perfect balanced tartness from Revelations house lacto-strain conditioned on mango and pineapple – also available as a candle!
The ‘School-Yard’ Valentine :
Recreate the excitement of Valentine's Day exchanges with the adult version! Tell that special someone how you really feel with a Dogfish Head Distilling Co canned crush!
The 'I Hate Everyone' Valentine :
Valentine's Day is just another day, right... right? Wallowing pairs perfectly with Autumn Arch Beer Project’s Love and Loathing - Strawberry Tart Saison Funky. Notes of oak and musty grapes blend together in this deeply red and gorgeous barrel-aged sour. 12 months on oak produced tender notes of earthy jam and a super mellow tartness.
