The Kinzie Hotel in Chicago is teaming up with interactive mixology company Femme du Coupe to offer a Valentine’s Love Potion Package the Saturdays before and after the Feb. 14 holiday. Couples enjoying a romantic stay at the Kinzie will get a visit by a Femme du Couple mixologist wheeling a vintage cocktail cart armed with aphrodisiac-infused elixirs.
The “Love Doctor” will schedule a time between 3 p.m. and 9 p.m. to visit the guest room with the cocktail cart and mix up customized, love-themed cocktails. The drinks feature Femme du Coupe’s Le Sirop specialty syrups, a selection of local premium spirits and natural aphrodisiacs. For instance, the Oh Honey cocktail combines Koval gin or vodka, lemon, raspberries, sparkling wine and Femme du Coupe’s Lavender Honey Le Sirop, garnished with an orange zest heart.
The 215-room Kinzie Hotel, which is operated by Portfolio Hotels & Resorts and celebrating its third anniversary on Valentine’s Day, is offering the Love Potion Package on Saturday night stays Feb.11 or 18. Priced at $179, the deal includes two Love Potion drinks mixed in their guest room, a bottle of a Le Sirop mixer, along with instructions on how to recreate the cocktail they enjoyed, a luxurious city-view guest room, evening appetizers and a deluxe continental breakfast. An added bonus: a late 2 p.m. checkout.
