Valentine’s Day Drink Recipes
This drink is named after Persephone, who in Greek mythology is the daughter of Zeus. To prepare a Persephone, muddle mint leaves with simple syrup and pomegranate juice in a cocktail shaker. Add ice cubes and all of the remaining ingredients and shake well. This is a non-alcoholic recipe, but you might want to add a bit of the bubbly!
This mojito is made with Greek Metaxa brandy in place of rum. In a cocktail shaker, muddle mint with brown sugar and lime juice. Add Metaxa, lemon juice and ice. Shake well and strain into an ice-filled highball glass. Top with the club soda.
How about a recipe mash-up that’s a drink and a dessert?
Valentine’s Day Dessert Recipes
The crushed peaches in this popsicle recipe are soaked in Bourbon. I would use plain whole-milk Greek yogurt. Since peaches are out of season, I would substitute frozen peaches whizzed in a blender, even though the recipe suggests canned. These pops will need to set until the mixture is completely frozen, about 5-6 hours.
Thinking of maybe a quick and easy pie for your Valentine?
One of the ingredients for this no-bake pie is plain whole-milk Greek yogurt. The pie will need to chill until the filling is set, at least 8 hours or overnight.
