Food & Wine | Follow your heart and fill your glass with some of our favourites

When I stop to think about romance, it usually involves setting the mood. Candles, flowers, and of course the perfect drink to cheers to the ones you love – be they friends, family or my hubby. It’s why when I stop to think about what I want to sip on this Valentine’s Day, I know that products found in the Moët Hennessy family are the perfect addition to a perfect occasion. We share some of our favourite brands and signature cocktails that are sure to woo the ones you love this #ValentinesDay!

From bubbles to bold flavours, Moët Hennessy is always a must in our home – and it’s no surprise why. With some of the best products available to Canadians from coast to coast, we found some of our favourites for Valentine’s Day or any special occasion you may be celebrating! Be it for yourself or as the perfect gift, here are some of our favourites:

Veuve Clicquot Valentine's Day

Veuve Clicquot 

Who doesn’t love a classic? I have countless memories sipping Veuve with friends around the world, and it is for that reason I will be doing it again for Valentine’s Day with Julio. “Veuve Clicquot Brut and Rosé are presented in a classic gift box. Elegant and sensual, the Champagne offers exceptional balance and surprising intensity.”

Dom Pérignon Valentine's Day

Dom Pérignon

I actually purchased a bottle of Rosé Vintage 2004 Dom Pérignon for Julio this past Christmas as a special gift for that special someone in my life. This elevated maison has been creating some of the most sought after bubbly around the world – and for good reason.

“Dom Pérignon announce its newest creative collaboration, “From Earth to Heart” a creative encounter between Chris Cunningham and Björk, two of the world’s most avant-garde  artists, celebrated for their boundless vision. The collaboration has also inspired a unique limited edition that features Dom Pérignon Vintage 2006 in its first Plénitude.”

Belvedere Vodka Valentine's Day

Belvedere Vodka

Don’t just choose any old vodka when planning something special, make sure to pick up one of our favourites! “Belvedere Vodka is the original and true expression of luxury vodka, created from 600 years of Polish vodka-making tradition. The vodka itself is always authentic, and never artificial. Created exclusively from Polish Dankowskie Rye and quadruple-distilled to create the perfect balance of character and purity ; it is completely free of additives, including sugar or glycerin.”

Here are some delicious recipes they shared with us just in time for Valentine’s Day to inspire your very own memorable moments:

Belvedere Vodka Cocktails Valentine's Day


There’s something quite special about sipping Hennessy when I stop to think about it. I picture a fireplace, a fur rug and some jazz playing in the background. That’s just my interpretation of this complex cognac, but I’m sure it means something equally as special to you. I also truly appreciate their collaboration with incredible people around the world, as we wrote about recently. 

“Hennessy Very Special is a reference in the art of blending with its unique style. The union of warm-hearted and full-bodied flavours, Hennessy V.S endures through the ages and pleases connoisseurs searching for a very special moment.”

If you don’t enjoy sipping it on ice like I do, here are a few recipes to try for yourself:

All of these brands combine to create the perfect family of brands for any occasion you may be celebrating. This Valentine’s Day, Julio & I will be sipping on several of them and encourage you to do the same in order to create perfect moments for those you love.
