Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and we're ready to raise a glass to romantic date nights all month long! If you're joining us for a much-needed date night or celebrating with a getaway, raise a glass to that special someone with these wines, beers, and cocktails.
Red, White, & You
What could be more romantic than lingering over a delicious meal with a glass of wine and good conversation? With the table set for a memorable night out, a glass of Matthews Winery Sauvignon Blanc, with its flavorful palate of tropical fruit, pairs well with our Grilled Citrus Swordfish or Pan Seared Cod. If you're warming up your winter night with a red wine, the Walt La Brisa Pinot Noir will be delicious with our Crispy 36 Hour Pork Belly or Japanese Noodle Bowl. Whatever your preference, our full wine list offers the perfect vintage for your celebration.
If your Valentine's date is more of a drinks and dessert situation, then we have just the sip-worthy cocktails to set the mood. If you're feeling bubbly, our Caramel Apple Bellini, made with Ferriol Cava, Butterscotch Schnapps and apple cider, will end the night on a sweet note. For a cocktail that feels like a dessert, we have a Toasted Horchata, our own twist on the classic Mexican beverage, with Bacardi Silver Superior Rum, toasted almonds, vanilla, rice, and heavy cream. A toast to the sweet life will definitely be in order!
Romance on Tap
No matter when you celebrate Valentine's Day, we're ready to help brew up a special date night. If you and your partner prefer to say cheers with craft beer, then grab a pint at Hawkeye Bar & Grill. Otsego County was one of the leading hops producers in the 19th century, and today you'll find a variety of incredible beers made here in Cooperstown, including award-winning Brewery Ommegang. One of their most popular beers, Neon Rainbows is a Hazy IPA with notes of tropical and citrus fruits. From nearby Hamilton, NY, Good Nature Brewing's American Brown Ale offers hints of chocolate and coffee, perfect for a Valentine's Day outing!
An unforgettable Valentine's Day awaits at The Otesaga! Whether you're planning a weekend getaway or a special night out, we hope you take the time to raise a glass to romance!
