Clothing Swap ‘n’ Sip

Remember the glory days of the great American mall in the ’90s? Malls were much more than what we see them as today: a mere collection of stores and kiosks. They were sprawling labyrinths, brimming with the promise of self-expression through fashion. A trip to the mall was an occasion, and if you weren’t meeting friends there at least once a week, your social life seriously suffered. It’s hard to believe that we’ve moved on, spending less and less time walking these community pillars, over the last decade or so; however, the times are changing, we’re moving faster, and we’re spoiled by the convenience of sipping Ménage à Trois Chardonnay while shopping, one click at a time.
 
We certainly don’t miss the lines, nor do we reminisce about those terrifying fitting room lights, but we do want to inspire you to take back some of the communal sentimentality of the mall. Don’t worry – you’ll still get the full sip-and-shop experience.
 
Hosting a clothing swap brunch is a lovely way to honor this unsung pastime, and it’ll help you clear your closet of those impulse internet buys that just didn’t work out. You know, the ones that you kept meaning to send back and are now way past the return date.
 
First, invite friends of all shapes and sizes for maximum wardrobe swap-ability. Prepare for your clothing swap party by stocking up on a couple bottles of Ménage à Trois Prosecco to get your squad feeling catwalk frisky. Having a few juice mixer options will thrill them, too! Make sure to have small-plate breakfast delicacies and other traditional finger foods, like fresh fruit salad, silver-dollar pancakes, a variety of cheese cubes, and a platter of salty bacon and sausage to encourage more bubbly consumption. Finally, just have fun taking turns trying on your new threads.

Take Charge, Libra

Praising the scales: They’re intent on being gentle and hospitable, and they’re known for keeping the peace. The Libra sees great value in their ability to stay neutral and diffuse conflict, and we love them for making the world a more amiable place with their fair-minded grace.
 
Where the Libra struggles: Sometimes this harmonious sign can get into trouble with their compromising ways, so we wanted to take a moment to highlight opportunities for the Libra to bust out of their diplomat role and be a bit more decisive.
 
Take charge, Libra: Your friends know you’ll never be the one to pick the movie or restaurant, and you’re content with just providing the choices for someone else to make the decision. We think that’s completely honorable, but why not shake things up and shock those closest to you? We suggest starting out small by initiating the next wine night. Our Ménage à Trois Pinot Grigio is the single-grape varietal that will give you the confidence to choose. This wine is 100 percent itself, and you will be, too, when you delight your kin with a chilly bottle and its bright fruit flavors. Feel free to keep going and rack up bonus points for selecting a couple cheese and meat staples to create your own charcuterie board. This will definitely wow your guests, and you just might surprise yourself.

Wine Hacks: No Corkscrew, No Problem

A tale as old as time and a nightmare of a situation. You’ve brought the bottle, but there’s no corkscrew in sight.

We’ve got your back with some simple tips that are easy to pull off to save the party. These methods will help you open the bottle without destroying the cork (or involving a shoe). Just make sure to use caution!

Option A: Screw the Cork
Use a screwdriver to insert a screw into your cork, and use the back of a hammer to remove it (with the cork).

Option B: Book It
Use the shoe method, but swap the shoe for a book.

Option C: Lock & Key
Use your keys! Insert into the cork at a 45-degree angle. Twist and pull up to remove the cork.

Classic Wine Cocktail: The Kir Royale

Feeling sexy? Special occasion coming up? Just want a delicious cocktail to celebrate the end of a standard weekday? We know exactly what this calls for – the Kir Royale.

This classic French cocktail is a spin on the Kir, which combines white wine and berry liqueur. And it’s making a serious comeback. Anything vintage feels fancy, and an added bonus of bubbles makes for the “Royale” touch.

Another reason why we love a Kir Royale? It’s simple to switch up by swapping black currant liqueur for raspberry. The world is your wine cocktail – time to seize the day.

Ingredients:
3 oz (9 parts) Ménage à Trois Prosecco
1/3 oz (1 part) crème de cassis (black currant liqueur)

Directions:
Add the crème de cassis to the bottom of the glass, then top it up with Prosecco. Serve in a flute glass.

Stir Things Up With Frozen Fruit Swizzle Sticks

Forbidden fruit may be the sweetest, but frozen fruit might just be the most irresistible of all. We dare you to stir up something new and exciting by slipping frozen fruit swizzle sticks into your glass. Sweet, icy fruits enrich the flavors in chilled wines like our Ménage à Trois California Rosé or Moscato, adding a frosty little bite that keeps things cool till the last sip.
 
Best of all? Making these icy morsels couldn’t be easier. Forget complicated couplings: For this to work, you’ll only need swizzle sticks or skewers and several varieties of fresh fruit. Grapes, berries, melon, apples, pears, and peaches are all wonderful options for pairing with wine. While the berries are ready to go, you can use a melon baller to create bite-sized bits from the melons, apples, and other larger fruits. Then, simply skewer the fruits and place on a baking sheet. Cover in plastic wrap and place in the freezer for three hours or until frozen. Your swizzle sticks are now ready to take a dip in your favorite varietal.
 
Need help finding the perfect match? Try one of our wine and frozen fruit swizzle stick pairings listed below, and before you know it, you’ll be falling head over bottle for these frosted favorites.

If you’re drinking … Ménage à Trois California Rosé
Then pair it with … Cantaloupe, honeydew, or watermelon swizzle sticks. The juicy fruits play nicely with this blend’s smooth acidity. Feel free to “experiment threely” by combining all three melon varieties on a single stick. Swoon!
 
If you’re drinking … Ménage à Trois Moscato
Then pair it with … Raspberry or blueberry swizzle sticks. Their slight tartness will balance out the Moscato’s tender sweetness. So very berry good.

If you’re drinking … Ménage à Trois Pinot Grigio
Then pair it with … Apple or pear swizzle sticks. Crisp fruits for fresh wine – need we say more? Consider your tastebuds tantalized.

- Pinot Grigio: Fresh, fruit-forward, and deliciously bright. You’ll want to share our Pinot Grigio with your special someones, and we’re happy to oblige.

- Chardonnay: Uncork crisp lemon and lime tastes and alluring aromas, paired with a full body. It’s sunshine in a bottle.

- Sauvignon Blanc: We know you desire vivid flavors and a crisp finish. Explore vibrant, tropical fruit aromas, leading up to bold bursts of lemon, lime, and tangerine on your palate.

- Moscato: A thrilling, flirtatious wine with alluring floral aromas, succulent juicy peach, and the golden, sweet, slightly tart taste of apricot flavors. We’re here to satisfy your indulgences from the first sip to the last.

Cheers to a night of exploring every shade of white with your dinner party guests!

National Red Wine Day: Best Reason to Put On Your Dance Shoes

Dance, dance, dance the day away with our Spanish influenced, soul-stirring, wine cocktail, known as the Spanish Sangria Bailarina. You could say it’s the lighter side of Sangria, since all you need to add is some lemon-lime, or orange soda, and ice, and serve in long, tall, high-ball style cocktail glasses. Some like it hot, and cold. Your closest confidants will undoubtedly be enticed by the invite to this very intimate and very unassuming, Spanish style, social gathering known as, Spanish tapeo. As you imagined, tapeo is what we call Tapas — a very big deal with the Spaniards.

Tapas go back a long way in Spanish history, and are meant to be the light appetizer you indulge yourself and friends with, between meals to help gulp down glasses, a pitcher, or a jug of wine. So the story goes. We love a good story.

What you and your guests will find most alluring about this National Red Wine Day soiree, is the fact that you’ll not only get to deliciously quench your thirst on a hot day, you’ll also satisfy your quest for an exciting adventure in tastes.

Recipe Ingredients:
1. 1 part Gaseosa (or a mixture of lemon-lime and water, or orange soda)
2. 1-part Ménage à Trois California Red

Preparation and Serving Steps:
1. Place 2 Highball Glasses in Scene
2. Add Ice
3. Add 1 Part Ménage à Trois California Red Blend
4. Add 1 Part Lemon Lime Soda
5. Mix and serve well chilled.
6. Standard garnish: Lemon slice

August Virgo Advice: A Method for Madness

Introducing Ménage à Trois Advice, where once a month, we put in our three cents on matters of money, love, life and, of course, wine.

You Ask…
Lately, I feel as though I can sometimes be seen as selfish or moody by friends and coworkers. But when it comes down to it, I’m all about a well-ordered life. How can I come across as more emotionally giving?

…We Tell
At Ménage à Trois, we believe that something incredible can come from a thrilling blend of diverse perspectives, tastes, and experiences. As a Virgo, your essence aligns with our original Ménage à Trois Red Blend: you are both dedicated and analytical, practical but can sometimes have trouble asking for help. You can be a little messy, but you know exactly what goals you want to achieve. Remember that perfection can come from what you perceive as chaos. And in love, trust that your wild idea of romance is a fairytale bound to come true.
