How to Spice Up Wine Night

Who doesn’t love wine nights with your closest friends? Nothing is quite as fun as that one night during the week (and who says it only has to be one?) when you and your girlfriends break out the wine and dish on everything from the Bachelor’s disastrous dates to the scandalous end to your ex-BFF’s relationship. So how can you add a little extra fun and charm to your next wine night? Try implementing these extra elements:

Try some zesty appetizers. Next to the wine, the next best thing at any wine night is the food. Besides your traditional sampling of cheeses, crackers, and grapes, unleash your inner chef and make some fun and simple appetizers. Check out these simple appetizer recipes, such as super salsa and mouthwatering cheese balls, from allrecipes.com.

Mix it up a little. I know what you’re thinking…”No wine? Gasp! That’s practically sacrilegious!” But occasionally switching things up can be great fun. Try hosting a south of the border themed get together, filled with tasty margaritas, plenty of guacamole, and a little bit of Latin spice. Or, try hosting a very cosmopolitan gathering, and sip on martinis in your very chic LBD.

Find some flirty wine glasses. Instead of plain, boring wine glasses, amuse your friends by bringing out glasses that are flirty, fun, and unique. There is a Lolita wine glass that is perfect for any occasion and any person. Some favorite designs include “It’s 5 o’clock somewhere” and “My dirty little wine glass.” Also, check out the Lolita martini and margarita glasses, which are great glasses if you want to change up the style of the traditional wine night.

So when the time comes for you to host wine night, make sure to add a little extra flare and style by following these simple tips. But remember, the most important ingredient for a great wine night is your closest friends, oh - and the wine (or tequila, or vodka, or rum, etc.)

Lolita Love My Glasses Collection - About Lolita

Lolita - Lolita's Love My Glasses Collections

Raised in Virginia, Lolita won various art awards as a child; her family and friends were amazed at the depth of her creative play. As for her heritage, Lolita stands by a family tradition of creativity and innovation. “I come from a long line of creative tinkerers,” she says. “My great, great uncle was Cyrus McCormick, inventor of the reaper, and my father has more inventions than I could ever count!” Her enthusiasm, in addition to her artistic and imaginative talents, led Lolita to a career in the fashion industry. Here, her double major in Fine Arts and Marketing served her well, and she was soon working for the likes of Christian Dior and Donna Karan. It was with the founding of her own company in 2000, however, that Lolita truly returned to her first love: art and design. When she came to naming her company, she chose her given name, one that came from her grandmother’s name, Lola: Lolita, meaning “beautiful one.” Her return to art has led directly to a product that does not disappoint. Filling a niche in a market whose customers desire unique and stylish home goods, Lolita chooses to use only the best materials and to stay ahead of trends, thus giving her retailers a perfect product. Not only are the glasses individually stunning, but their unique marketing twist also makes them instant collectibles. While customers rave about the designs themselves, they are equally appreciative of the recipes written on the bottom. And with twenty-five unique designs, there is sure to be one for every taste, a recipe for each martini-lover.
