Daphne Oz, lifestyle expert and host of the new-tv show The Good Dish has teamed up with spirits brand, Plume & Petal, to share her favourite refreshing-tasting libations to ensure that your Valentine’s/Galentine’s gathering is one to remember.
With only 20% ABV – half the alcohol of a standard vodka – and 30% less calories than a glass of wine, Plume & Petal helps create uniquely crafted cocktails that will make the holiday memorable.
To compliment Plume & Petal Valentine’s and Galentine’s inspired cocktails, we recommend pairing them with Daphne’s Puff Pastry Brie & Prosciutto Kisses (the recipe for which we have also included below). Filled with warm, melting cheese & jam tucked inside a buttery, golden brown puff pastry and topped with crispy, salty prosciutto twirled into gorgeous roses that are easy enough even for non-crafters to make!
So why not create the drinks and the nibbles to make this year a day that will definitely warm your heart.

The Pink Flamingo cocktail layers natural flavours that enhance the subtle sweetness of raspberry and lemon. Daphne says it is “faintly, faintly sweet… the perfect mix.”

Valentine’s Day Puff Pastry Brie & Prosciutto Kisses
- 1 package puff pastry sheets
- Sweet Chili Jam
- Brie cheese
- Muffin Pan
Puff Pastry – Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease your pan with soft butter.
Unfold puff pastry on a floured surface – make sure the pastry is in an even shape. Cut each sheet into 3-inch squares. Place the squares into the greased muffin pan and make sure the corners are pointed up. Then cut the brie into 1-inch cubes. Place a cube of cheese in each dough-lined muffin cup. Top each piece of cheese with a scoop of jam of your choice. Place the pan in the oven and bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until the puff pastry is golden brown and the brie is soft.
Prosciutto – Use a sharp knife to make a single, lengthwise cut down the centre of the prosciutto slice, stopping about an inch from the top so the piece is still connected. Starting at one of the ends, roll the prosciutto onto itself, continuing to roll in a long “u” shape past the connected part and up the other cut side. Place the prosciutto kisses in the oven and bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes until they are nicely golden brown. Let them cool and then place the kisses on top of the puff pastry brie and enjoy!
