Celebrate Valentine’s at Datz!

Breakfast, Food, Romantic, Valentine's Day

Just mention Datz and you will see my eyes sparkle like a Tiffany diamond.  Since my first meal there, I have been a Datz devotee and always find something new and innovative on their menu. Whenever I have out-of-town guests, Datz is our first stop and everyone always raves about it. Datz is a mecca for foodies in Tampa and in addition to their constantly evolving menu, they sell a wide variety of gourmet food products, desserts and liquor. I can’t go to Datz without picking up some of the latest artisanal food products or a scrumptious macaroon from their dessert counter. With Valentine’s Day approaching, they have done it again with some new signature cocktails and a romantic pancake dish perfect for a cozy Sunday brunch.

With its sexy color and artistic presentation, The Agave Kiss is made with 1921 Crema de Tequila, Voli Raspberry Cocoa Vodka, Mathilde Framboise, cream and fresh raspberries. I am a huge fan of Voli Vodkas,  not only are they delicious, they are easy on the waistline with 25-40% less calories than most leading vodkas.  I have had a few cocktails made with Voli Vodkas at Datz  and they have all been magnificent. Friday night I will be dining at Datz and trying The Agave Kiss. I can’t wait!

If there is one thing I love most about Valentine’s Day, it is chocolate! Datz has a new chocolate martini that is decadent, sweet and sure to please even non-chocolate lovers. The Chocolate Cherry is made with 44 North Rainer Cherry Vodka, 360 Double Chocolate Vodka, Rothman & Winter Orchard Cherry, Meletti Cioccolato and garnished with a chocolate covered cherry.  WOW! This would make the perfect drink for a romantic Valentine’s dinner.

What is more romantic than breakfast in bed? Sunday brunch at Datz ! Their new Love Potion Pancakes will give you a reason to jump out of bed after a late Saturday night. Four pink buttermilk pancakes with chocolate chip polka dots and drizzled with San Francisco’s Ghiradelli chocolate sauce, then topped with a succulent whipped topping, these look like heaven on a plate.  I am taking my two Valentines, my bambinos Rocco and Gianna, to brunch this Sunday at Datz. They are both little foodies and like their mamma, adore pancakes.
