Fun Romantic Activities for Couples and Groups

Valentine's DayA special Valentine’s Day wine and chocolate activity is to melt some chocolate. Take a wine glass and dip the rim of the glass in the melted chocolate. Pour some wine in the glass and enjoy. We tried this chocolate and wine activity while visiting Carlson Vineyards in Palisade, Colorado. The chocolate rimmed glass had a cherry wine in it. Other wines that may pair well with the chocolate on the rim of the glass include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot or Sangiovese.

Valentine's DayThis activity is fun for a couple. The chocolate covered rim of the glass may place a bit of chocolate on your cheek. This can be humorous and fun to remove. This activity is also amusing at a party.

Another entertaining Valentine’s Day activity to do as a couple or in a group is to have everyone try a port Tim Tam slam. The process involves pouring a generous amount of port in a wine glass. Take a Tim Tam and bite off a bit of diagonal corners. Place the cookie into the wine, and use the cookie like a straw sucking the port through the cookie at the diagonal corner. You have to eat the port filled Tim Tam quickly, before it dissolves in your wine glass. The port and chocolate pair well.

Here is our recipe for Port Tim Tam Slams.
