Pop into Sandrine’s French Pastry & Chocolates for some of her signature macarons – perhaps a box of rose-flavoured? Pair with a bottle of organic pink bubbles from Summerhill Pyramid Winery.

Cipes Brut Rosé: Tasting Notes- Enjoy a soft, creamy mouthfeel and intense notes of tart cherry, blood orange, hibiscus, grapefruit and a hint of biscuit. Bright and mouth-watering with a long, lingering finish.


2. Chocolate Cake & Raspberry Liqueur

Pair with Okanagan Spirits' pretty Raspberry Liqueur: This flavourful spirit captures you in its aroma before even touching the taste buds and delights you with just what you anticipated: a taste of fresh crushed raspberries.

Pour over with MotherLove’s beautiful Pina Colada Kombucha to bring the holiday vibe to your private float party.


4. Brownies & Beer

A bag of brownies and a 4 pack of dark chocolate stout is can be darn romantic if you ask me.

Pair these with a chocolate beer and you are going to get a Hallelujah from your sweetheart. BNA Brewing’s Otis Oatmeal Breakfast Stout is a rich, delicious, chocolatey oatmeal stout aged on cocoa nibs and Peruvian coffee beans.
