Summer, Sex & Sweets - Celebrate National Wine Day

Not like we need a specific day to celebrate wine, but Friday, May 25th is National Wine Day.

With summer being right around the corner, it's the perfect excuse to enjoy a good glass of wine with friends and family. Check out my top five reasons to enjoy the holiday below.

It's Been a Long Week
National Wine Day falls on a Friday this year so what better way to celebrate the work week being over than with a box of Franzia. Ok, maybe class it up a bit with a nice full bodied bottle of wine or a glass of your favorite champagne.


Celebrate Summer
What a great way to kick off summer and Memorial Day weekend by getting together with your friends. Host a wine & cheese tasting party or grab a few bottles and head to the beach. Kick back, relax and watch the sunset.

Boost Your Sex Life
According to an Italian study done in 2009, women who drink 2 glasses of wine a day have better sex than those who don't drink at all. If that's not an excuse to drink a glass or two, I don't know what is.


You Need Another Excuse To Bake Cupcakes
What better way to celebrate National Wine Day than to combine your love for cupcakes with a nice bottle of red. These Red Wine Cupcakes are the perfect boozy treat to pair with a dessert wine, but of course taste equally sweet when they are enjoyed on their own!

Drink To Your Health
It has been said that moderate consumption of red wine can improve heart health and increase levels of good cholesterol. Additionally, Resveratrol is a component found in red wine that has been known to prevent blood clots. Now that's something to drink to!
