    NY – Cupid won’t need target practice this Valentine’s Day with my perfect West Village evening!

    Ayza Wine and Chocolate Bar in the West Village

    1. Ayza in the West Village

     1.  If romance is what you’re seeking, look no further than this bastion of indulgent decadence known as AYZA West Village.  It’s the consummate spot for making life more pleasurable and makes you feel romantic and luscious, lips to toes, as you savor fine wine and chocolate desserts.  On Mondays local musicians play stimulating jazz rhythm for all to enjoy.  On Tuesdays, they offer Girls’ Night Out.  A special online booking comes complete with a complimentary Chocolate Shot and a Belgian Chocolate Covered Strawberry during the evening with your girlfriends.


    Burlesque at the Haberdasher

    2. Burlesque at the Haberdasher

    2.  If Thursdays are your night to howl at the moon, head downtown to famed Meatpacking District’s The Haberdasher for drinks and live Burlesque.  Perched on the third floor of a beautifully restored 1800’s townhouse restaurant, 5 Ninth, The Haberdasher offers craft cocktails, its very own Manhattan List (featuring six variations of this classic cocktail), and Burlesque shows on Thursday evenings.  For reservations – 212.929.9460.


    3. Frangelico

    3.  In case Ol’ Jack Frost keeps you from getting into the elements, here  are two of my favorite aphrodisiac-inspired recipes for you to make at home.  So much can happen in a New York minute, so I promise these sweets will heat things up in seconds flat.  


    Frangelico, with its intense hazelnut flavor and high alcohol content, is a known aphrodisiac!
    1 shot Frangelico
    1 shot cream or half ‘n half
    Dash of Vodka

    Combine in a cocktail shaker with crushed ice.  Shake then strain into a tumbler with ice.  Garnish with a cinnamon stick.


    Chocolate and chilies are longtime amigos, dating back to the Aztecs.  Much of the chilies’ sensual allure is due to a biological reaction or “chili high” resulting from the rush of endorphins.  With that winning combination, your Italian kiss “Baci” will burn with desire!  Click here for the complete recipe, including my five chocolate love elixirs.
