Wine Jello Cups

  • -

Stella Rosa never fails to find a way to upgrade your favorite childhood treats into an adults-only version. We’ve done a Creamsicle cocktail that tastes just like the real deal popsicle, gummy bears, lollipops, and ice cream floats, just to name a few. Now we bring you Stella Rosa Jello! You can easily make these into Stella Rosa Jello shots but you know us, we’re a little extra so we made some fancy-pants layered Jello fruit cups.

What you’ll need:
Stella Rosa wine – your choice of flavor
• Jello mix – your choice of flavor
• Water
• Cool Whip
• Fresh fruit

Let’s make Stella Rosa Jello cups!
1. Bottom layer: combine 1 cup of boiling water and 1 package of Jello mixture until it is fully dissolved. Stir in 1 cup of Stella Rosa. Divide mixture evenly among your serving cups, and refrigerate immediately to let them set.
2. Middle layer: combine 1 cup of boiling water and 1 package of Jello mixture until it is fully dissolved. Mix in 1 cup of Cool Whip. Divide mixture evenly among your serving cups, layering them on top of the set bottom layer. Put the cups back in the fridge so this layer can set.
3. Top layer: repeat step one and divide this mixture evenly among your serving cups, layering them on top of the set middle layer. Refrigerate the cups so the top layer sets.
4. When ready to serve, top each Jello cup with Cool Whip and fresh fruit.

Pro tips:
• If you want more fruit in your Jello cup, cut up some pieces and drop them into the Jello cup after pouring in the liquid mixture. Then place the cups in the fridge to set.
• Keep adding layers of Jello! Just repeat and alternate the steps.
• To achieve the look of our angled Jello, prop your cups on its side in a small box or on the shelf so that the Jello sets at an angle.

It really is just as easy as making regular Jello! You can purchase Stella Rosa wines at your local retailers or at San Antonio Winery in-store and online. Share your final masterpieces with us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook with #StellaRosa and #Stellabrate.

Stellabrate National Candy Month with Stella Rosa Candy!

  • -

Hope you don’t have a dentist appointment anytime soon because June is National Candy Month! It’s like Halloween but instead of 1 night of sweets, you get 30 full days! This month, rather than just aimlessly feeding your sweet tooth with store-bought, pre-wrapped goodies, challenge yourself to make your own candies from scratch. If you need another boost of inspiration, choose recipes that will leave you with Stella Rosa wine-infused confectionery. Not that you need reminding, but Stella Rosa makes everything better.

Here are just a handful of ways to Stellabrate National Candy Month to get you started! Download all the recipes mentioned below, here:

Start the month with some Stella Rosa Black Lollipops. Tell us, how many licks does it take for you to get to the center?

Next, try your hand at making red wine truffles with Stella Rosa Red or Rosso. There is no secret to making a good truffle – they’re actually much easier to make than most people think!

Pick up some gummy bear molds (or any other shape molds) so you can create a beautiful assortment of Champagne gummies! Our favorite sparkling wines to use here are the Stella Rosa Imperiale Moscato Rose, Brachetto, and Prosecco, but you’ll still need just a little bit of food coloring to get the right color.

If you’re having a small get together (or just a night to treat yourself) and would like to offer Stella Rosa and chocolate pairing options, go for it! You have our recommendations, but you’re still encouraged to try your own pairings too.

You’re going to need something to wash all this candy down, and what’s a better choice of drink than a Stella Rosa-based libation? Call it the Stella Rosa Cotton Candy cocktail.

Tell us what you think and share your own Stella Rosa-infused candies and pairings! Vibe with us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, and hashtag your photos with #StellaRosa and #Stellabrate for a chance to be featured.

DIY Time: Drink Wine, Give Your Succulents A Home

  • -

Stella Rosa is trendy, succulents are trendy, and DIY crafts are trendy. So, here’s a fun idea: how about repurposing your wine corks to create mini planters for succulents? They’re simply adorable, not to mention easy to put together. Plus, it gives you extra reason (not that you need one) to finish off another bottle of Stella Rosa – you need the cork!

Materials:
• Wine corks
• Kitchen paring knife or pocket knife
• Magnets
• Hot glue gun
• Soil
• Succulents

Let’s get crafty:
1. Drink Stella Rosa wine and collect the corks.
2. Lay out a piece of paper, cardboard, or towel to work over. This makes the cleanup process much easier and faster.
3. Use a kitchen paring knife or a pocket knife to carve out a hole in the cork. Do this by turning the knife in a circular motion. The hole should go about halfway down the cork.
4. Glue magnets to the corks.
5. Fill corks with soil.
6. Add succulent plants. Add a little more soil and pack it down.
7. Drizzle with a little bit of water.

That’s it! Now you’re free to put your new wine cork succulents onto the fridge, or wherever you had in mind, though most ideal locations would be near a window so it gets some natural light. Then sprinkle or spritz it with some water 1-2 times per week. They’re extremely low maintenance!

If you’re going to forge ahead with this DIY project (and we hope you do), keep us in-the-know on social media by following us on Instagram and Twitter and using #StellaRosa and #Stellabrate on your photos.
