Thank you to Cameron Hughes for sponsoring today’s post! All thoughts are my own.
When my husband and I started our family, our usual weekend dates night were put on hold. Instead of trying to find a babysitter to venture out, we discovered the convenience having date night at home. We still enjoy our date nights in, even as our kids have gotten older. Once children have gone to bed we can uncork a bottle of wine and enjoy a new movie together together on the couch. It is the quality time we enjoy most, not the venue.
If you like kicking your wine up a notch, you can make a wine cocktail or a sangria like this Apple Cinnamon Sangria my sister-in-law made for us a couple of years ago. Loaded with fresh apples and our favorite spice, it is like fall in a glass.
To make this fall apple sangria, you’ll just need a couple of bottles of your favorite red wine, such a Red Mountain Blend or Cabernet Sauvignon from Cameron Hughes Wine. (Scroll down for the full recipe.)
Cameron Hughes Wine meets with the world’s foremost growers and producers, and looks into every cellar and barrel room to find some of the best wines in the world. They live by a simple philosophy – great wine doesn’t have to be expensive.
Their deals are made discreetly and are typically protected by an agreement to keep the source producer or winery’s name secret – that’s how they can offer a $100 Napa Cab for $30 a bottle, or a $60 bottle of Pinot for under $20.
And Cameron Hughes would like to help you get your own night in with your favorite wine and a free movie with their new Wine Movie Win Sweepstakes!
