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.

Do the Pink Flamingo!

  • -


Summer is in full swing and these hot days, you can find us in one of two places: in the kitchen throwing a cold cocktail together, or out by the pool, sipping on that cold cocktail. The latest cocktail we did was one we like to call “Pink Flamingo” because pink is so in right now and we’re obsessed. This is a great cocktail to share with your girls (and guys!) on a hot summer day.

Ingredients
Stella Rosa Pink aluminums – 1 per person and can be purchased at San Antonio Winery in-store or at your local retailer
• Guava, sliced
• Strawberries, sliced
• Grapefruit, sliced
• Raspberries
• Lime or mint for garnish
• Ice

Putting the cocktail together is a no-brainer – just add fruit and ice into a glass, and pour in the wine. If you want to impress your guests a little more, freeze pieces of fruit directly into ice cubes.

Take Your Best Guess

  • -

It takes part math skills and part luck to play this Stella Rosa and Bodega Sangria guessing game, one that is easy to assemble and have ready for a friendly contest between friends at a party. You only need 2 clear jars or bowls and a plentiful supply of Stella Rosa wine corks and Bodega Sangria twist off caps. A better way to put it: you need to have and open copious amounts of these wines bottles and because you cannot let that wine go to waste, you’ll just want to put them in ice so they’re chilled when you and your party guests are ready to start drinking!

1. Collect and count the number of Stella Rosa wine corks you have.
2. Write this number down on a piece of scotch tape and tape it to the bottom of a jar or bowl.
3. Repeat this process for the Bodega Sangria caps.
4. Have your friends guess how many corks and caps are in each jar.
5. The person who guesses correctly or closest to the actual number wins!

Stella Rosa and Bodega Sangria wines can be purchased at local retailers and from San Antonio Winery in-store and online so stock up! Don’t forget to hashtag your photos with #StellaRosa and #BodegaSangria. Have fun!

The Aluminum King Pin

  • -

Who knew bowling pins could be made of wine? We’re pulling out all the stops and delivering a strike that’s sure to be a knock out with your party guests. Stella Rosa products often have more than one purpose and the aluminum bottles are no exception. First you drink, then you bowl!

Take your Stella Rosa Aluminums and pour the wine into glasses and serving pitchers. Refill the aluminums with water or sand and set them up on one end of the lawn or a bench in a triangle. Grab your bowling ball of choice (we recommend rubber kick balls) and head to the other end of your makeshift bowling lane. The aluminum pins are shatterproof so go ahead and wail your bowling ball down the lane to knock over as many aluminums as possible!

Don’t miss out on an easy way to entertain your friends this summer and to have an excuse to drink your favorite wine. Stella Rosa backyard bowling can only be found where real fans reside and we want to hear about your DIY game day.

Find Stella Rosa products at local retailers, San Antonio Winery in-store and online. Spare us the suspense and shoot over some pictures of your backyard fun with #Stellabrate and #StellaRosa on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.

Welcome to the Backyard Carnival!

  • -

Sun’s out, fun’s out! That’s a call for you to tidy up the backyard, break out the pool toys, and fire up the grill because your friends are on their way over! Switch up your next backyard party by setting up a bunch of carnival games for your friends to play and compete for prizes. These games can go on all day long in between the usual barbecuing and pool playing.

You don’t need an elaborate, expensive set up for the games and in fact, you can DIY them all on your own with your empty Stella Rosa and Bodega Sangria wine bottles! Chances are you or your guests have the other equipment to use and if not, they’re neither expensive nor hard to find at a store near you.

Games like ring toss and lawn bowling are always a draw. We recommend using standard-sized wine bottles (750ml) for ring toss but for bowling, go with Stella Rosa Aluminums.

Equally exciting is the aim and fire type of game where players use water guns to aim and fire away at ping-pong balls that are sitting on top of Stella Rosa Minis.

Set up a guessing booth off to the side of a table where your friends can guess how many corks are sitting inside of a jar, just by looking at it.

As far as food goes, keep the grill hot with the usual burgers, dogs, and veggies. Put out a variety of fresh fruits for friends to snack on and add to their drink of choice (Stella Rosa or Bodega Sangria, which you can purchase at your local store or from San Antonio Winery), and offer extra carnival-approved treats like popcorn to pair with your Stella Rosa, wine ice cream, and cotton candy!

There is so much fun to be had at a backyard party like this, you’ll see! Make sure we, Stella Rosa, see it too by using #StellaRosa and #Stellabrate on your Instagram photos!

Aim, Steady, and Fire!

  • -

Put your aim and speed to the test by setting up and playing this Aim, Steady & Fire game! Challenge your friends and see who can finish first; the winner will win the prize. This is a game made for summertime backyard parties, and make sure everyone knows to wear clothes they don’t mind getting a little wet because later in the day, you guys can just have a free-for-all water gun fight.

Things you will need:
Stella Rosa Minis (for the game, it doesn’t matter what flavor you get, but FYI they come in Rosso, Moscato, Peach, Pink, and Black)
• ping pong balls
• Water guns

Game rules:
• Pour wine into serving glasses for your guests to sip on.
• Weigh the Stella Rosa bottles down a little bit by filling it with water, rocks, sand, etc.
• Arrange the bottles in a line on the table.
• Place a ping-pong ball on top of each bottle.
• Standing a distance away from the table, players will use the water gun to try and knock the ping-pong balls off of each bottle.

To change up the game and difficulty, you can make different arrangements of the bottles on the table, extend the shooting distance, and set time limits. Having fun has never been easier!

You can get the Stella Rosa Minis at your local retailer or at San Antonio Winery in-store. When the games are on, be sure to share the fun with us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter by using #StellaRosa and #Stellabrate.

Ring Toss, Wine Style

  • -

Time to test those wrists with some tossing action. Set up a game of ring toss while tossing back some wine for an entertaining afternoon in the backyard. It doesn’t take much time or items to create hours of gaming and the best part? Stella Rosa comes in a variety of flavors so you can have a really colorful set up, as well as a great spread for your drinking friends.

What you need:
Stella Rosa (any flavors) and Bodega Sangria 750ml bottles
• Rings
• Wooden crate (optional)

Game set-up:
• Arrange wine bottles either in a crate or on a sturdy base
• After 3 rings make it onto 1 bottle, remove that bottle
• To increase the challenge, increase the distance between the ring tosser and the targets
• Create teams with color coordinated rings for some real competition

It’s easy to find cheap rings to purchase, or you can keep this purely DIY by gluing the ends of cut jute rope together. When it starts to get dark, break out glow in the dark sticks to use as rings instead.

It’s equally as easy to get Stella Rosa and Bodega Sangria for this game because they’re available at many of your local retailers as well as at San Antonio Winery in-store and online.

We’d love to see what colorful action you get into, so snap some pics and share them with us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter and use #StellaRosa and #Stellabrate in your captions.
