Ignite Your Night with a Little Spontaneity with this Date Night Jar

Sometimes we find ourselves stuck in the same old routine when going on dates. Whether it’s been a long day at the office or you’re just running on empty with ideas for the evening, our Date Night Jar solves this dilemma.

On a cold winter day or evening, sit down with your significant other and add a spark of creativity and chance to your relationship by brainstorming a bunch of ideas with your significant other. Whether you come up with ideas as a team or you each write your own down, selecting a future night’s date will build anticipation and excitement.

We do have one rule to abide by: when drawing a card from the jar, you must do whatever it says.

Here’s how to make your own.
What you need:
- Glass jar or bowl
- Construction paper
- Scissors
- String

How to make:
1. Decorate the outside of your jar or bowl to your preference.
2. Sit down with your partner and write down as many date ideas that come to mind.
3. Once finished, roll up the paper and tie them shut with some string.
4. Place all your ideas in the jar and set it aside until a night needs a little jumpstart.

Date Night Idea Suggestions:
- Go see the highest-rated feature film at your local movie theater, no matter what the movie is about.
- Take a local art class.
- Sign up for a cooking class together.
- Go for drinks at a local landmark.
- Visit a museum to see a featured exhibit.
- Make homemade pizzas.
- Go for a sunset picnic.

When Opposites Attract, which Side will You Find Yourself on? The Saint or the Sinner Cocktail

Our Saint & Sinner Cocktails are two opposites that attract, yet each are equal in bursting flavorful sensations. To celebrate all the romantic joys of couple-hood, we are pairing two cocktails that differ in flavor profiles and tasting notes yet complement one another in multiple ways.

Start mixing your Saint and Sinner cocktails and let the night decide on which side you reside.

The Saint: 

The Saint cocktail mesmerizes you with sweet and tangy flavors as we’ve added pineapple and lime to complement our lush, tropical fruit-tasting notes .

  • 3 ounces Ménage à Trois Gold Chardonnay

  • Add 1 cup ice to shaker and pour in Ménage à Trois Gold Chardonnay.
  • Cover shaker with lid and shake vigorously for 1 minute.
  • Pour into tall glass, garnish with pineapple, lime, and sprig of rosemary. Serve and enjoy.

The Sinner:

Add pink to your cheeks with the Sinner cocktail. We’ll flirt with sassy red fruits in our California Red Blend and tickle with tangy grapefruit spritzes in this irresistible, refreshing cocktail.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1-2 teaspoons honey or sugar (optional)
  • 1 lime, quartered
  • 6 fresh mint leaves
  • crushed ice
  • juice of 1/2 a grapefruit
  • 2 ounces Ménage Red Blend
  • sparkling water, for topping

  • In a glass, muddle 1-2 teaspoons sugar or honey (if using), the quartered lime, and mint leaves.

Celebrate the Chinese New Year with a Night Filled with Tasty Dumplings and Ménage à Trois California Red

As the Chinese New Year approaches, we’re kicking off this Year of the Dog with a delectable wine and food pairing. The arrival of the new moon on Feb. 16 officially commences the start of this annual celebration.

The Chinese zodiac is divided into 12 houses, with each house being celebrated for a full year rather than a month. This year, the Year of the Dog, celebrates our friends that are honest, loyal, and filled with integrity. You may also find yourself with a bit of luck if a dog is in your vicinity. If you’re born in the years listed below, then this is your year to shine.
- 1970
- 1982
- 1994
- 2006
- 2018

So let’s kick off this lunar celebration the right way, with Chinese dumplings and a glass of Ménage à Trois California Red under the stars. The savory flavors of delicious chicken dumplings and the rich full-bodied notes of our California Red will surely complete a night meant for the Dog.

Our Ménage à Trois’ Tantalizing Game Night of “Shadows of Mystery” is a Feast For The Senses

Ménage à Trois is making game night enticing again. Inspired by Venetian Masquerades, where identities are hidden behind masks, adding mysterious excitement to the evening, the Ménage à Trois’ game, “Shadows of Mystery” is a Feast For The Senses. It keeps the identity of select objects hidden in the shadows, so you never know what to expect or what you’ll experience. Players use a blindfold to take away their sight, leaving them to use taste, touch, smell, and sounds to discover what objects lay in front of them.  

Can you recognize the sweet burst of flavor from a blueberry by taste alone? Or a strawberry just by its aroma? 
Does wine have its own distinctive splash as it cascades from the bottle to the glass? 

It is up to the challenger to pick the items for each player to attempt to reveal. Allow your other senses to be heightened by the intoxicating effects of daring to enter the unknown. 

Wherever the fire of the night takes you, make sure to bring Ménage à Trois wine along for the ride. You never know what sensual discoveries will be revealed when you’re playing our Ménage à Trois “Shadows of Mystery” game.
