Valentine Cocktail

I am looking forward to Valentine’s Day this year, but that wasn’t always the case! One year my friends and I threw a party for ourselves. Mainly we just watched “The Devil Wears Prada” (it had just come out on DVD), ate desserts and drank wine. Another year we threw a red-themed party after Valentine’s Day. We served all kinds of red appetizers, fresh pomegranates and red cocktails. I love the idea of themed cocktails.

This year I am planning on making:

Pomegranate-Champagne Punch

  • 1 1/2 cups pomegranate juice
  • 1 cup pear nectar
  • 1/4 cup orange-flavored liqueur, such as Grand Marnier
  • 1 bottle (750 ml) Champagne

In a large pitcher, combine pomegranate juice, pear nectar, and orange-flavored liqueur. Slowly add Champagne. Serve over ice. This recipe was found in Martha Stewart Living.

  2. I love your first two images!

    Do you think there’s a place where people register their 70s homes for photo shoots like the one in the second image?

    For my 21st birthday party we made a giant tub (classy! but wrapped in metallic pink wrapping paper so…slicker than your average!) of improvised cosmopolitans – vodka, cranberry juice and something fizzy…needless to say, your cocktails sound much better. I’ll have to give ’em a try!
