February is here and there are endless opportunities to rejoice! It is the official month of love and there’s nothing more extraordinary than celebrating the ones we love. From a romantic evening with your significant other, to Galentine’s Day or celebrating with your besties, Valentine’s Day is a cheerful occasion to raise a glass to those who mean the most to you.
Here are a few of our favourite Valentine’s Day drinks inspired by love.
A romantic rosé, Château Routas Rosé has the essence of freshly cut watermelon; ripe peach aromas and floral notes lead to a palate alive with wild strawberries and hints of mineral notes. Crisp acidity and a refreshing finish make this romantic rosé the perfect wine to celebrate your sweetheart.
Las Moras Malbec is a fabulous red Malbec, deep red in colour with fresh aromas of red fruits such as cherries. This red is smooth on the palate with a subtle spicy finish, making it the ideal complement to a romantic dinner featuring red meats and pasta dishes.
A classic favourite for a cozy night in, McManis Cabernet Sauvignon is dark garnet in colour with a bouquet full of blueberry, blackberry and black cherry notes and a hint of smoke. Medium-bodied on the palate with juicy black currant and black cherry flavours, it finishes with rounded, creamy tannins and a hint of mocha.
An award-winning local favourite that’s as pretty as it is delightful, Mercator Compass Rosé is a classic Provence-style rosé, made from local grapes and expressing our unique terroir. The delicate structure and expressive aromatics make this an ideal food wine year-round. Delicate dishes such as those made with local seafood, complex roasted chicken dishes or creamy pasta dishes are some suggested pairings. Compass Rosé also pairs well with an array of cheeses and serves well as an aperitif.
The perfect party red for sharing amongst friends, Piqueras Red Box is made from organically grown grapes. This wine is a blend of 50% Syrah and 50% Monastrell and shows flavours of ripe red cherries, raspberries, crushed boysenberries, red plums and a touch of vanilla spice. It is medium-bodied and soft with a silky fruit-forward finish.
A sparkling rose to share with your sweetie, Luvo Rose is fruity, effervescent and pink; everything you’d expect from a quality Nova Scotian rosé. A hint of sweetness, a revitalizing freshness, heaps of red berry fruit and tropical aromatics together create a wine that is both elegant and expressive.
For those looking to celebrate February with a little more gusto, Super Bowl LVI is just around the corner and it’s the perfect occasion to pair your favourite game day beverage with a delicious snack or even to try something new.
Here are a few of our favourites to kick off the big game!
White Claw Black Cherry seamlessly balances the tartness and sweetness of a ripe summer cherry. It’s the perfect introduction to the crisp, refreshing taste of White Claw Hard Seltzer and the perfect seltzer to help cheer on your winning team.
There’s something for everyone in Truly Tropical Variety pack! The Berry Mix Pack is a convenience store go-to, making it perfect for, well… everything. With classic flavours like Black Cherry, Wild Berry, Blueberry & Acai, and Raspberry Lime, it always gets the job done!
Celebrating game day on the East Coast doesn’t have to feel frigid! Born in the heart of Mexico in 1899, Sol is a Bright and Refreshing Lager. Inspired by the sun and brewed to shine just like those who drink it.
If rum is your Super Bowl drink of choice, Havana Club 7 Años is highly versatile. Crafted for sipping, it can be enjoyed on the rocks and is ideal for your cocktails. This dark rum, matured in ex-Bourbon barrels, showcases the rich natural flavours of Cuba. The spirit unveils the tastes of the Cuban terroir: aromatic tobacco, sweet tropical fruits, molasses, spices, and vanilla from the continuous ageing process, enhanced by the slow release of aromas.
So, whether you’re soaking in all the romance that February has to offer or celebrating a touchdown in the company of friends, it’s the perfect month to mix it up, try something new and celebrate with those who mean the most to you!
