As you may have gathered by now, I love throwing cocktail parties. They’re not as big of a commitment as a dinner, but still offer a welcoming environment for guests to gather and enjoy each other’s company. The problem: it’s really hard to eat standing up with a glass of wine in your hand. These cocktail plates that have a built in wine holder are the most elevated option I’ve seen yet for providing a genius solve for those of us who can’t locate convenient counter space on which to set our wine so that we can eat shrimp. Whew, so glad this has been solved.
