Help Guests Keep Track of Their Drinks

Wine bottle and glassesInstead of jamming another thing in the junk drawer (I’m looking at you, drink tags) or washing wine glasses all night, use this simple trick, courtesy of culinary expert and Estancia Winery ambassador Gail Simmons, to keep track of party-goers glasses.

When entertaining, use a simple colored or white wax pencil to write each guest’s name on their wine glasses as they arrive—or, save time and do this before the party starts. This way everyone can easily keep track of which glass is theirs and you’ll be socializing instead of scrubbing.

    Even easier, although maybe not as classy, is our family’s habit of writing the names on the glass base with a felt pen (any color). We’ve never had a Sharpie or other brand name felt pen fail to come off with a plastic dish scrubbie and a little soap and water..

    Good idea! I like to get the round white paper coasters, right the persons name on it, add a star, smiley face or something seasonal ( glasses for a person that wears glasses, mustache, etc.) and use clear drying school glue, and glue to bottom of glass. After the party I let the glasses soak in Dawn water and next morning paper and glue all gone!

    Using inexpensive wineglasses & chalk paint, paint the base of the glass…. write name with chalk ( colores is especially festive ) & you are all set ! Happy Entertaining!
