Well, Valentine’s Day coming up. Why not do something colorful for your better half, best friend, who ever you think need some tender attention… kick out the pink pastels and add some tropical notes, some hot, sweet, something new. No starters or main courses, skip dessert, make it easy: make some fruity cocktails (and you can make them super fruity with no alcohol).
#1 it’s a Singapore Sling turned tropical, or “made more tropical” with the addition of the papaya (the seeds are edible and will lend a peppery bite—totally up to you— take it or leave it) and some Serrano chilies for heat. I don’t know if the Long Bar at “Raffles Hotel” in Singapore would add Papaya & Serrano Sling to their list? Probably not! But I like this version, and I can feel a bit of peanut peels crunching under my feet while sipping it… And since my husband and I went there on our honeymoon this drink will be our 2014 Valentine cocktail.
#2 is full of blood orange against basil and it becomes the margarita meets French kiss cocktail wauuu… what a nice combination…
#3 is a very diffenrent cocktail where east meets west – a vodka chiller with dragon fruit plus melon and rosemary! Surprisingly good.

It’s chilly today. We just had five days of massive grey, rainy days, no sun, no no sun at all. Today it is crisp, freezing, grey but hey… a bit of Sun is so nice. Enough about the Danish weather, let´s eat some colors! Here’s a delicious, golden soup from foodie and Nutritionist Sarah Britton‘s oh so very edible blog “My New Roots“. With Smoky Chickpea Croutons on top – what a great idea – they are soooo yummi and will be a topping or a crisp snack I will make over and over this year! Find out the how to right here.

Petite crisp meringue kisses from Jamie Oliver’s RECIPEASE lovely edible shop in London – so sweet they look painted in pastels and mmmm… I like the different flavors my favorites ones: the crunchy green pistachio + the pink berry one. (Amazing they all survived the way back to Copenhagen in my bag – the pink berry almost did not!).
