Food and Drink Guide to Create the Perfect Night this Valentine’s Day

Creating the Perfect Night for Valentine’s Day all comes down to the food and drinks. We’ve compiled the best food and drink products to make your romantic night one to remember!


French for ‘beautiful joy’, BEAU JOIE brings a fresh, modern vibe to the traditional Champagne world ideal for your young professional audience. This is a Champagne designed to celebrate the fearless pursuit of pleasure and attract a younger, more diverse audience who are open to challenging tradition and inspires revelers to indulge their own inner king or queen during times of celebration. It’s a zero dosage Champagne, meaning it has no added sugar, so an ideal luxury gift for those wanting to indulge a little while still valuing wellness.


– BEAU JOIE Rosé Champagne makes it a ready-made gift for a new generation of Champagne consumer who values health & wellness, style, and sustainability. 

– Zero dosage allows the purity of the fruit shine through without being masked by the addition of sugar. The lack of any added sugars means BEAU JOIE works with all manner of foods and desserts – especially anything with a salty tanginess or touch of sweetness. 

–  It’s a 50/50 blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that has been aged for four years on yeast. 

– The result is a light, crisp rosé Champagne with a delicate matte color of rose petals, brimming with fresh fruit – think watermelon, strawberry and citrus notes, it boasts a vibrant structure and a delicate mousse that’s topped off with a lovely, lively long finish. 

– BEAU JOIE bottles are encased in a stunning suit of armor made from second generation scrap copper that has a rose hue — a functional design element that’s made to help cool the champagne quicker and keep it colder for longer without the need for an ice bucket, which, it turns out, not everyone has at home. 


More than 30 years ago, Sam Farber founded OXO when he saw his wife Betsey having trouble using a vegetable peeler due to arthritis. Sam saw an opportunity to design more thoughtful and user-friendly cooking tools and promised Betsey he would make a better peeler. Thus, OXO was born.

Valentine’s Day presents us with many opportunities to spoil the ones we love. Chocolate is great, and so are flowers, but if you’re looking for a fresh way to surprise your special someone, why not start the day with this Valentine’s Day coffee drink idea or have an intimate night at home with cocktails for two? Our Chef in Residence shares his favorite V-Day Cocktail to help spice the night up, Blood Orange Mezcal, with his favorite bar tools below.

Tim’s recipe for a Blood Orange Margarita using his favorite OXO tools: 

  •         4 1/2 oz of your favorite mezcal
  •         2 oz lime
  •         2 oz blood orange 
  •         1 oz simple
  •         3/4 oz agave

8-Cup French Press with Grounds Lifter

The sleek, stainless steel accent of the OXO Steel 1.7 Qt/1.6 L POP Container with Scoop makes it a smart choice for modern kitchens.

They source all of their coffee responsibly. They use Organic and Fair Trade coffees for all of their signature blends and many of our single origins. In many cases, they buy coffee from farmers and traders in the country of origin, meaning more money flows into the country, and farmers can take better care of their coffee trees and their families.

They have always strived to operate sustainably in our daily operations by offering biodegradable coffee bags, having their bags hand-printed locally using water-based inks, composting their chaff with local organic farms, and minimizing their footprint by recycling and reusing within their facilities. They use only compostable to-go products in their coffee shop. In fact, the co-owner, Haden, was a founding member and president of the local sustainability non-profit, SustainFloyd.
