Drink ideas for a Valentine’s Day celebration

sagaform mulled winepot and cocktail set

Nowadays, it is frequent for singles to host a party with single friends. When you make a party, you simplify the bartending task by having a signature drink for the event.

To go with its time, Sagaform proposes a cocktail set with a lemon reamer and a muddler. You can make the popular mojitos. But you may prefer a drink associated with winter.

There is no better way to warm up the atmosphere than to serve a mulled wine or cider. Glöggset, a Mulled Wine Pot is designed to keep the wine at the right temperature. This is a practical solution to quickly serve refills at a party.

This one displays a traditional Nordic pattern. The heart symbol is prominent. It is one of this time where it is ok to be literal in your decor.

A homemade solution

Glöggset is made of stoneware. For its superior thermal quality, a cash iron works perfectly. After examining the Sagaform mulled wine set, the only thing I miss to assemble my own with my latest Le Creuset Fondue Set is the cover.

Where to place the ladle?

One question that intrigues me is if there is a hole in the cover to insert the ladle between servings? If you find out the answer, keep me informed. This set will hit the shelves soon, right in time for Valentine’s Day.

For a no-fuss mulled wine recipe, get the gift set with cookies for you or the hostess. The set includes 6 mugs, coasters, spice biscuits and mulled wine mix.

  1. Lovely selection. Is it already this time of year? Time just flies by….

  2. Just dont use this near any Swedish friends.. this is really a Christmas thing. Dont know about the hole, maybe just so you have a place to keep the ladle so it does not stain anything between servings?

    Emma: Thank you for the precision. I suspected that the pattern was a traditional Nordic Christmas pattern. But for me who is not used to that pattern, it looks like big hearts. So that is why I associated with Valentine Day.

    But honestly, I am not fond of the pattern either way. It does not fit my style.

  4. No me either!!!
    (Live in Sweden, HATE the hearts at christmas!!!)
