Watch tiny cranberry hearts dance in the bubbles of champagne…or non alcoholic champagne.
Here’s a fun Valentine’s Day idea…a spin on a little science experiment. Have you ever seen dried cranberries dance in champagne before?…dancing cranberries? How about tiny dancing cranberry hearts. We’re using non alcoholic champagne (Martinellis brand sparkling apple cider), but you can use regular champagne too, both will work. It’s all about the bubbles. Your kids are going to love this! …who am I kidding…everyone will love this! It’s so fun to watch!
Here’s what you’ll need to make Dancing Cranberry Hearts:
– dried cranberries (we used Ocean Spray Brand craisins for this)
– a small pair of sharp scissors
– sparkling champagne (we used non alcoholic Martinellis sparkling apple cider)
– glass champagne flutes (any fancy glasses will work)
Using small scissors cut the tiny dried cranberries into little hearts. Each one will be different, it’s hard to get them perfectly into the shape of a heart, just do your best.
We made a fun little video so you can see them in action:
Once you have a few hearts for each glass (about 3 to 4 tiny hearts per glass), just drop them into the bottom of the glasses before you pour in the sparkling champagne.
Now for the fun part…pour the chilled bubbly in and watch as the tiny cranberry hearts dance and flutter all around, sinking and rising with the bubbles of the champagne. It’s so fun!
This would be fun to do for a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner, or even a fun Valentine’s Day dinner with the kids.
Love is in the air! …and now it’s dancing in your glass. <3
