L is for Libations
Dazzle your sweetheart with a lovely cranberry creation like the Love Potion. Champagne-inspired drinks including the Cranberry Mimosa and Sparkling Punch will have you feeling all warm and fuzzy inside. Or make their heart skip a beat as Craisins® float up and down in the Lava Lamp cocktail. Top the night off with a kiss—a Cranberry Kiss—using Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice Cocktail.
O is for Oh My
Bake a little love into your holiday by adding a pop of romantic red and decadence to your sweet treats. Indulge in a slice of Outrageous Chocolate Cranberry Fudge Cake made with Ocean Spray Cranberry Sauce for an oh-so-good dessert. For bite-sized romance, Cranberry Chocolate Truffles will have you feeling giddy, and they pair perfectly with a short and sweet love letter.
V is for Violet
Incorporate shades of purple with your red adornments for décor that will make anyone fall head over heels. Bring the lovely color combination to your taste buds with Rustic Cherry Berry Pie Pops and Blueberry Smoothies.
E is for Endearing
It’s easy to say “I’m Crais-y About You” with valentine-sized Craisins® Snack Packs, perfect for the kids’ school parties. Win them over with chocolate by baking up a dozen Chewy Cherry Brownies. Or help the little ones create a Heart Shaped Craisins® Frame for someone special.
