Love Potion....Global Love Day!



I don’t know about you, but for me Valentine’s day is not about a $200 bottle of wine or a dinner reservation that took months to get, but instead, a festive ritual meant to be spent with the one (or ones) you love in whatever way you chose to celebrate each other.

Of course, nothing adds to the merriment like an organic cocktail made just for the occasion. Newlyweds Jay Esopenko and Melissa Gugni, owners of Drink Event Bartending in San Francisco, have designed a couple especially for us. Enjoy!

Love Potion #12
2 oz. organic 100% pomegranate juice
1 1/2 oz. Square One organic vodka
1/2 blood orange squeezed
1/2 lime squeezed
1/4 to 1/2 oz. simple syrup (1/2 raw sugar–1/2 water dissolved)

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice, shake vigorously for 10 seconds and strain into a cocktail glass. Float 3 fresh cranberries for garnish.

Raspberry Bliss (non alcoholic)
6 organic raspberries
2 sprigs of fresh organic thyme
1/2 organic Meyer lemon
1/2 oz. simple syrup (1/2 raw sugar–1/2 water dissolved)
3 oz. sparkling water

Remove the leaves from one sprig of thyme and add with 5 raspberries to a shaker. Muddle. Add lemon juice, simple syrup and ice. Shake vigorously for 10 seconds and strain into a hi-ball glass filled with ice. Top with sparkling water and garnish with a raspberry and sprig of thyme.



Another day to remember is Global Love day on May 1st,2009
It is our vision to unite one and all in a celebration of love and compassion. We honor each May 1st as a symbolic day of unconditional love and call upon all people and all nations to gather together in the wisdom of peace and love.

Global Love Day is the universal recognition of our innate oneness through love. When we come from this limitless love we naturally and easily embrace ourselves and our fellow humanity. Opening our heart, we allow unconditional love to be our guide and compassion to be our gift to life.

We invite you to celebrate with us by consciously focusing on love and what it means to you throughout this day. We hope that by practicing love in all areas of your life, you will find it easy to love unconditionally all year long.

Our main theme explains it best...

"Love Begins With Me"
