“At the Sweetheart Soirée, we returned to romance in its purest and most elegant form: pretty melodies, close dances and closer whispers,” Michael Arenella explained to The Observer at last weekend’s Valentine’s Day and the Sweetheart Soiree with St-Germain at Norwood. “St-Germain served their amazing artisanal French liqueur creations, including the Signature St-Germain cocktail and La Rosette,” he continued.

It’s getting dark, and it’s almost time for dinner, and it’s Friday, and it’s Valentine’s Day. So put on these jazz tunes and be one with your libido.
