I love to find simple ways to make something feel extra special. And while champagne feels pretty darn special on its own, even that can use some dressing up once in a while. I keep dried rose petals on hand so I can easily make my favorite goat cheese appetizer recipe so I like to figure out how else to fit them in to my cocktails or cooking. This rose rimmer for your glass is super simple but adds a fun bit of color and taste to your glass of bubbly.
Have you heard of infused wine? It’s where you take fresh herbs, and maybe some citrus, and let it flavor your wine. I’m a big fan of fresh herbs (and wine, duh) so I decided I needed to try this out for myself. I’m not sure why this isn’t more of a thing. It seems like a super simple way to add your personal touch to a beverage. It is both hippie and Martha Stewart at the same time. And it is SO easy to do! The only hard part is letting the wine sit long enough to pick up the flavors…
Rosé all day. It’s the perfect pink drink to sip on a warm summer’s afternoon. And for those times when you are just chilling with your homies out on the patio, I’ve created the perfect playlist. Rosé and rap go together like Puffy and Mace. They are great on their own, but better together. I’m also sharing my favorite rosés to pick up for your summer entertaining. Word.

I live in an area where the parks are abundant but your house and yard are tiny. I often want to invite people over but worry that my house will be too cramped (plus I’ll have to clean it…). Now that the weather is warming up, we really need to start taking advantage of these gorgeous public spaces. While you won’t have your full party arsenal available to you in a park, it is still really easy to put together great looking parties to go.
You know when you are out somewhere and you taste something and you’re like, “I NEED TO RECREATE THAT BECAUSE IT MAKES MY MOUTH SO HAPPY!”? That was me at a chain restaurant in Texas when I was visiting my best friend. This, my friends, is Strawberries Romanoff Dip. And it’s crazy delicious. AND SO EASY! I’m sorry for yelling I’m just angry with myself for not recreating this earlier. Because now it’s my go-to dish for entertaining. It works as an appetizer or dessert which is cool. Just pair it with the perfect bottle of prosecco and invite some friends over for a casual hang.
Where are my wine drinkers at? I had a great experience with an online wine store and just had to share it with you. Unlike signing up for a wine club, Uncorked.com sells wines by the bottle with no subscription services. They organize their site really well so you can search for bottles based on price or preference and they have one standard shipping rate. They have great suggestions of bottles if you are looking for a gift plus they have pairing information and recipes on the site too.
