Hot Glue Glass Markers + A Giveaway

Tis’ the season for parties, friends and drinks. Here’s a crazy simple last minute idea to mark all those wine glasses you will be serving up over the next couple weeks.

Use a hot glue gun and mark your guests initials on the glasses. The transparent nature of the glue looks especially pretty against the bright holiday drinks, and the glue peels right off after the party is through. Mark designs, initials, even polkadots for a festive holiday bar.

Glasses don’t need to be glass to mark with hot glue. The glue, when dry, easily peels off most surfaces (just be sure to test the surface before covering your favorite mugs). My vintage copper pots fit right in with monogrammed glue initials. Fill them with a simmering berry cider to great your guests with warmth:

Make the warm berry cider using 8 oz. Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash, 2 sprigs fresh thyme, 7 cranberries and 1 lime wedge. Place the thyme springs in a medium pot and add Sierra Mist Cranberry splash. Heat to a simmer and pour over fresh berries in a mug. Spritz with fresh lime.

For a refreshing non-alcoholic version try mixing the Sierra Mist with a splash of tonic water, a squeeze of lime and top with cranberries. I’m calling it a seltzer mist- It’s a great option for non-drinkers at the holiday party and for brunch the next day.

Sierra Mist is offering a great giveaway today. Win a holiday entertaining pack including glasses, bar equipment and 2-3 single serve bottles and 1-2 coupons for 2 liter bottles (alcohol not included). The prize pack is worth $110, visit Sierra Mist on Facebook and leave a comment below to enter. Giveaway is open until Friday evening.

Whether it’s a holiday cocktail or tasty dessert, Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash is the perfect ingredient to revamp your next holiday party or get-together. Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash, naturally sweetened with real sugar, is the refreshing taste of lemon-lime soda with a festive, naturally flavored cranberry splash.
