Kinzie Hotel spices up Valentine's Day with 'love potions'

(Kinzie Hotel Valentine's love potions)

Chicago’s Kinzie Hotel has partnered with Chicago’s Femme du Coupe interactive mixology company to give guests a unique Valentine’s offering. On Feb. 11 and Feb. 18, lovebirds are invited to partake in the Valentine’s Love Potion Package. Couples will enjoy a romantic stay in a luxurious guestroom at the hotel kicked off by a special guestroom visit by a Femme du Couple mixologist with a vintage cocktail cart armed with aphrodisiac-infused elixirs.

The “Love Doctor” will be on call to fix up customized love-themed cocktails featuring Femme du Coupe’s Le Sirop specialty syrups, a selection of locally made premium spirits and natural aphrodisiacs. For $179, guests will receive two Love Potion drinks personally crafted by a Femme du Coupe mixologist in their guestroom, a custom take-home bottle of a Le Sirop mixer along with instructions on how to recreate the special recipe they enjoyed, a lavishly appointed guestroom with views of the city to admire while toasting, evening appetizers and a deluxe continental breakfast.  

“We’re hoping our Valentine’s Love Potions help put couples in the mood for a memorable night on the town,” said Andrew Eck, GM of Kinzie Hotel, an independent 215-room property operated by Portfolio Hotels & Resorts. “Staying true to our ‘Chicago Starts Here’ mantra, we’re proud to partner with locally based organizations like Femme du Coupe to give guests authentic experiences.”  

In addition to made-to-order classic love affair cocktails like the Old Fashioned, featured Love Potion concoctions on both nights include themed options such as “Be Still My Beating Heart,” “Pillow Talk,” “Do Not Disturb,” “Bubble & Blush,” and “Oh Honey.”
