Wine glass drying rack makes entertaining easy

The holidays are the perfect time to pop the cork and enjoy a nice bottle of wine with friends or family. My bar ware tends to see most of its action during the holidays and the cleaning is always the worst part.

I feel like no matter what I do my favorite wine glasses always end up with water spots. I leave them upside to dry, towel dry them… but there are always smudges. And once they are clean and put away, they collect dust on my dry bar and look a mess. Hand washing and drying delicate stemmed wine glasses is a difficult task for clumsy people like me. So image my delight when this awesome wine glass drying rack passed through my office.  All these problems and more are solved.

This sturdy, steel organizer features three prongs that can hold up to six large wine glasses. Whether you’re searching for an easy way to clean or store your stemware, this rack is a great addition. The bottom rack is made from rubberized plastic, perfect for storing on your kitchen counter top or inside cabinets. The strong wire prongs snap into place for a reliable hold.

This rack is designed so that wine glasses slid in upside down. This way, stemware can air dry without spots from trapped water droplets, or can be stored without collecting dust inside the bowl of the glass. The bottom tray has a raised lip to contain water and allow proper air flow for quick drying. The dark gray color is sure to blend in with any kitchen decor and compliment any home bar.

So break out the stemware and your favorite bottle for guests without worrying about making a cloudy, smudged or dusty impression.

Red wine hot chocolate makes the problems melt away

Sometimes a stressful day calls for taking the wine down off the rack. Sometimes it calls for chocolate. And sometimes it calls for both.

This decadent recipe is perfect for unwinding on a cold. gloomy weekend — or makes for a great after meal drink for dinner guests.

Red Wine Hot Chocolate

1 1/2 cup milk (You can use regular cow’s milk or go dairy-free with almond, soy, coconut, hemp — whatever makes you happy)
1 cup red wine (your choice)
1/3 dark chocolate, roughly chopped (you can use chips too — but avoid opting for powder)

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add milk and chocolate. Whisk slowly until combined. Then pour in your wine and continue to stir until everything is nice and hot. That’s it! Simple. This recipe can fill about two large mugs, but the rich flavor is great for sipping so you can share it with up to six people if you opt for smaller portions.
