Happy Valentines Day!  We put together a super simple cocktail that is a major crowd pleaser, along with a nice little appetizer spread. You can’t really go wrong with an evening like this, and it’s perfect whether you’re entertaining a group, or just with that special loved one.


The supplies are very low fuss.  Pick up a bottle of Prosecco, some fresh cranberries, and black cherry juice for your cocktail recipe.  Along with the drinks, I’ve been enjoying serving cheese and meats in a new way.  Simple & Crisp has these great little packages of dried sliced fruit, that I’ve been using in place of a cracker.  They add a new dimension of flavor to a standard cheese plate, and are of course, a very pretty addition to the spread.  I also found the orange slices make a gorgeous topper to any drink, as the fruit catches the light in that stained glass window way.  So pretty and festive!
