Every year, we celebrate our love of one another with gifts, gestures, and…crowds. While it is a nice sentiment to want to take your loved one to a night out, it can be frustrating to deal with the scores of others wanting to do the same. You also may not have the option of going out if you have kids at home. Enjoy a romantic evening in together with movies, a unique meal, and a special Valentine’s Day cocktail!

Most everyone’s specific tastes in romantic movies are different, but try for something that will really catch the spirit of the holiday. We┬árecommend Stardust, Amelie, or 2012’s Much Ado About Nothing. All of these are available on Netflix right now.

For Valentine’s Day dinner, try something savory and satisfying like one of these options:
Filet Mignon With Rich Balsamic Glaze
Lamb Chops With Mint Gremolata
Basil Cream Chicken
Swiss Chard Lemon Pasta (gluten free and vegan)

For the evening’s signature cocktail, we recommend either the Amarula and Eve, or the English Rose.
