I just wipped up some yummy white wine sangria that I wanted to share with you. I love these 1 quart Ball Mason jars from Hobby Lobby. They cost about $4 and they’re great for this recipe.
Make sure to make this 24 hours in advance so the fruit has time to mix in the wine. You can change the fruit out to suit your tastes. You can’t really mess this up.
2 bottles semi-sweet or dry white wine
5 cherries chopped in half
1 peach chopped
1/2 cup orangecello (lemoncello recipe in separate post)
Refrigerate overnight. Add 1/4 cup sprite, ginger ale or club soda to each glass. It should be about 1 part sprite to 3 parts sangria. I wouldn’t suggest adding it to the full mixture since it will go flat. Enjoy!
Yeah, my nails match my glass…lol! These were my New Years nails.
Here’s a super easy, fun, affordable DIY ladies, painting your own wine glasses. I own a few of those glasses you see in the stores and boutiques that sell for $20-30 each! I’ve been wanting to try this for some time and finally got around to it. I started off simple, so stay tuned for some more elaborate designs later on. I used Folk Art paint and Martha Stewart glitter paint from Michael’s that sell for about $1-2 a bottle. Using what I already had, I decided to go for metallic gold and gold glitter.
The stemless glasses I found at Target for $1 each. I like using a blunt edge paint brush because I feel like it’s easy making straight lines, but you could tape off as well. I used the end of my paint brush for polka dots.
The supplies list is super simple. Wine glass, paint and paint brush, and a paper plate.
Dipping the end of my paint brush into the paint and just dotting it on. I used the Metallic paint first, let it dry for about 30 minutes and then went back over each dot with the gold glitter paint.
For the martini glass, I left it as plan metallic paint polka dots. I really like how it turned out. Simple and cute.
On another glass, I painted about a quarter of the bottom in metallic, allowed to dry for 30 minutes and then used the glitter. I’m sorry I don’t have a finished version. I didn’t “love” it. I think because I didn’t bring the paint up high enough and my line wasn’t as straight as it should have been. I probably was drinking wine out of another glass while doing this craft, making my lines wonky. So I blame it on the wine 😉 But I do like the glitter layered with the metallic. It creates a nice gold sparkly finish.
Stay tuned for more elaborate designs. I’m excited to try this again. I expected to have to cure the paint in the oven but it really is unnecessary. I always hand wash my glasses anyway otherwise they get broken. So I only recommend the oven if you put yours in the dishwasher and then it’s 350 degrees for 30 minutes to set the paint. Happy painting!
