But these Antipasto Skewers are a close second.
The awesome ladies Eva & Val hosted their first ever Sip Happens party a week or so ago, and it was delicious. Plus a great reason to whip up some delicious snacks! Great snacks, great wine, and new friends = delicious. They have been talking about this party for a while, dropping hints on twitter and Instagram. So I was pretty pumped to get invited and hang out with the cool kids.
We tried two different wines, 14 Hands, Hot to Trot and The Show, Malbec. I'm not a wine expert, and I'm not going to pretend I know a lick about perfumes, aromas, and the airy fragrance of the grapes. If it tastes good, I'm happy. I'm pretty open to trying new wines, however, I really hadn't found a red I liked enough to drink the whole bottle (crazy right?). I'm usually turned off by the bitterness and how dry it is. BUT I was really surprised at how delicious 14 Hands was. The Show, however, wasn't one of my favorites.
Amber, from The Browsing Brunette, made us these AWESOME hand scrubs. I have a secret love affair with hand scrubs..... PLUS she is giving a little tutorial on her blog on how to make your own! WIN.
p.s. I stole this picture from Val... don't sue me
I can't wait for the next party! Until then we will be enjoying a Java party and perhaps a sleepover.

As promised here is the recipe to the ever so delicious Antipasto Skewers. Try not to gobble up all the cheese before you make the skewers. It will be hard, trust me. I love cheese.
Did you host a Sip Happens party or go to one?
