Winter can get pretty boring. Don’t let the winter blues get to you this year, pack the season full of fun activities you can enjoy with friends and family. Here are 5 activities you can enjoy this winter that pair perfectly with a bottle of Sh!tshow.
1. Make a meal at home that pairs well with your favorite wine
Try googling wine pairings that pair well with one of your favorite wines. Pick something you’ve never made before. The task may sound daunting but it’ll be a fun adventure in the kitchen and will be a good way to test out your cooking skills. By the end of it, you’ll have a delicious meal that enhances the taste of a wine you already love.
2. Make a campfire in your backyard and roast some s’mores
On a winter day that isn’t too frigid, you can always enjoy a nice warm fire and some s’mores. Fill a tray with chocolate, graham crackers, and marsh mellows and get ready for roasting. Bring a bottle of wine with you to enjoy with the s’mores, that’ll be sure to keep you extra warm.
3. Game Night
Pick up a random game at a local store, or you can even find cheap used games at the thrift store to pick up. Half the fun is trying to figure out how to actually play the game. Have every one bring a bottle of wine and get playing. The games will only get more fun as the night goes on.
4. Host a Wine Tasting Party
Invite all of your wine lover friends over for a wine tasting party. Have everyone bring their favorite bottle of wine and a shareable appetizer or desert to pair with it. It’ll get you to venture outside of what you normally drink and it’s a fun activity to get everyone out of the house this winter.
5. Paint & Sip
Look for somewhere hosting a Paint & Sip near you. If you can’t find one, host one yourself! All you need is a canvas, paint, brushes, and of course wine. It wouldn’t be a Paint & Sip with out the wine. Pull up an easy step by step painting tutorial on youtube and you’re good to go.
