I had a terrific Valentine breakfast this morning that W4D made for me. I love pancakes -- not that fluffy tasteless variety like you get in restaurants but stick-to-your-ribs buckwheat or corn cakes with bacon so that's what was waiting on me after I slept in and finally tottered downstairs - with fresh raspberries, no less. I adore raspberries!
Thanks Dear, breakfast was delish!
I'm making dinner for us tonight. It's too crowded to go out on Valentine's Day so we'll go out another night for a romantic dinner. Tonight we stay in. I've created a special cocktail for the occasion. I call it a "Valentina." It's pale pink and frothy and here's how I make it:
1 part Vanilla Vodka (Denaka)
1 part Triple Sec or Cointreau
1 part Rose's Watermelon Infusion
1 part Whisky Sour Mix (I like Holland House)
Shake in cocktail shaker over ice and pour straight up into a large, chilled martini glass. Garnish with strawberry or watermelon. I'll be making a few more shakers of these tonight for W4D and me.

Now, I'd better get busy prepping dinner and hunting up lots of candles. Hope you have a cozy and romantic Valentine's evening with someone you love.
