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!
For the Sweetheart Cocktail, measure out 1 ounce of the black cherry juice and pour into your champagne flute, then pop that bottle!
Fill your glass with prosecco, and carefully place a few cranberries on top.
Garnish with a bright piece of the Simple & Crisp dried orange fruit thins.
Set out your appetizers, pass along a cocktail, and enjoy your Valentines Day this Saturday evening!
