Valentine’s Day Sangria

Valentine’s Day Sangria
Valentine’s Day Sangria

First off, the Home Goods by my house… the clearance section was out of control. I managed to snag some great stuff this weekend because of course going to Home Goods would be the highlight of any 24 years old’s weekend. But I managed to get this super cute rose tinted pitcher for $10. Naturally, I was like “ok let me go grab some rosé and make a Valentine’s Day Sangria.” Isn’t that what everyone thinks when they see a pitcher? Sangria? So call this Valentine’s Day Sangria, call it Galentine’s Day Sangria or just call it Rose Summer Sangria (cause you know I’ll be making this so many times over the summer), call it whatever you want, but do yourself a favor, make this sangria for any Valentine’s or Galentine’s Day celebrations. 

I immediately thought of this card– you can shop more of their cards here— because I would love a bouquet of rosé. Or roses. Beggars can’t be choosers, right? Ok ANYWAYS, back to this Valentine’s Day Sangria. I am serving this tonight for a few friends who are coming over. I trick my friends into hanging out with me by telling them I’ll cook for them. We have a couple flatbreads, some cacio e pepe, jumbo sea salt chocolate chip cookies and chocolate covered strawberries. And lots of wine. Duh.

I was anticipating the strawberries being not very good… I mean how good can strawberries be in the middle of February? They’re only good in the summer. Contrary to my belief, these strawberries were so flipping good. I was glad I got two containers of them because I ate about half of them between slicing them for the sangria and making chocolate covered strawberries. I may or may not have also dipped some directly in chocolate and ate them. Needed to make sure the melted chocolate wasn’t poisoned for the chocolate covered strawberries.
