Charming Potion for Valentine's Day

While food is very important for a romantic dinner, you can't forget about the beverage. When you're eating a full meal like the one that Warren and I cooked up, you need to combine it with a drink that is slightly sweet and acidic to cut down the richness of the meal. Most importantly, though, you need a drink that will work magic to charm and attract your sweetheart.

You'll need:

4 cups of Sprite
2 cups of black cherry juice
1 cup of pineapple juice
2 Tbsp of Grenadine
1 orange
1 blood orange
1 tangelo
suggestion: a shot of plain or orange-flavored vodka to make this an "adult" beverage

Make it:

1. Cut all of the oranges in half for easier squeezing.
2. Pour half of your Sprite, cherry juice, pineapple juice, and grenadine into a each of two wine glasses.

3. Squeeze half of each type of citrus fruit into each glass.
4. Stir lightly with a long spoon and then adde two cubes of ice.
5. Prepare to be charmed.
