Here is what you will need (just four things):
a pair of scissors
glue (I found some paper craft glue at Hobby Lobby)
Step Two: Take your scissors and cut along the open edge of the folded cupcake liner, careful not to cut all the way to the edge (use the creases as a guide).
Step Three: Open the liner (so that it is only folded in half) and glue along the center fold. Careful to just glue halfway up the middle.
Step Five: Now, glue the bottom edge of the liner, this time putting glue along the entire edge. Slowly, roll the skewer to the edge, allowing the cut paper to flare out. Use your fingers to add extra flare!
Step Six: There you have it...festive drink stirrers. Serve with your favorite drink and Voila!
We created a pomegranate margarita for the event and it was a huge hit! Combine 8oz. frozen limeade, 1/2 cup tequila, 1 cup soda water and 1/2 cup pomegranate juice. Put all the ingredients in a high speed blender with 2 cups of ice and blend away. The best thing about this drink is that it can be made up to six hours ahead of time and stored in the fridge. Serve over ice and garnish with lime!
Give it a try and let us know what you think. Enjoy!
