Looking for a little romance this Valentine’s Day? Then ditch that bottle of bombastic, bold Bordeaux and order something bubbling with style and passion.

Sexy and sophisticated, Moet & Chandon is the world’s best-known champagne. The passion comes in the form of Alize, a potent mix of French cognac, vodka and passion fruit.

We asked Bob Melton, an award-winning bartender at Chuck’s Steak House in Waikiki, to create a cool cocktail worthy of the hottest Valentine.

Do try this at home.

Strawberry Delight

And just in case you need a hiding place for, say, a sparkling diamond ring, here’s the quintessential champagne cocktail.
