Do you love wine but don't have much experience with it at restaurants? Don't panic, there is a simple way to survive. When the waiter bring the wine menu this Valentine's Day, order the cheapest option. Restaurants mark up the second least expensive bottle knowing you won't want to appear cheap on your date.. but also that you don’t want to overspend on drinks, especially if the food is pricier than what you usually go for. If you are already paying for a nice meal out, there’s no need to pick the glass that’s $1 or $2 pricier, especially when you can’t taste the difference.
There are, of course, exceptions to be made. This advice is strictly for people who enjoy wine but feel guilty ordering the cheapest glass because they are worried it will make them look unsophisticated or unappreciative. It’s ok. There’s enough undo pressure on Valentine’s Day without excessive worrying over the cost of your imbibing.
