With the winter chill settling in, I’ve been stocking up on some of my favourite citrus to try to ward off those winter woes. Sunkist brings back a lot of great childhood memories of slurping on juicy oranges and mandarins. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve come to trust their products for quality and consistency just like my parents did. But after giving it some thought, I also realized that they are a great way to create some delicious recipes and experiences for Valentine’s Day.
Along with our friends at Sunkist, we are sharing some of our favourites recipes & ways to use citrus in your day-to-day life that will have you puckering up this #ValentinesDay.
From blood oranges to grapefruits, fresh flavours are a must when creating a delicious recipe. Whether your entertaining or wooing, here are a few of our favourite recipes that we’ll be sipping, noshing on and enjoying this Valentine’s Day (and let’s be honest… all winter long)
- Spend the evening in with your closest girlfriends and sip on citrus filled cocktails like the Five Spice–Blood Orange Shrub
