I don’t know about you, but sometimes my husband and I struggle to get out on Valentine’s Day without the kids. So we like to do a date night in after the kids go to sleep, usually including a delicious dessert and drink. I created this YUMMY red sangria recipe to share with you for the occasion, and I think you will want to drink it on more occasions than just Valentine’s Day … wink wink!

You may want to do something more like chocolate-covered strawberries for your dessert. They pair wonderfully with this red sangria recipe. I love red velvet cake so that is what we went with. Any dessert you do will look fabulous on the Chinet Cut Crystal plates
